Jewish ancestry has been traced back to the patriarchs of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In today’s world, Jews include three groups of people - those who were born to a Jewish family without the consideration of practicing their religion, those with some degree of Jewish lineage and those without any Jewish ancestral background but have converted to Judaism. They are the followers of the oldest religion still in existence, with a long history.
Jews believe that humans have the will and freedom to choose good over bad, and it is their deeds in this life which will earn them salvation in the afterlife.
The Jews, believe that a Messiah is yet to come, who will unite the whole of mankind under the Kingdom of God. They say he will bring justice and peace to everyone in this world, this means that they do not believe in Jesus Christ as that Messiah promised in the Torah.
Moreover, they believe that they are the chosen people - God’s favourite, and reserve the right to rule this world. However, they also happen to be the most persecuted people on the planet.
Gentiles were the non-Hebrew descendants of Abraham. In modern times, Christians are known as Gentiles, who believe Jesus Christ to be the son of God. They believe that Jesus was the Messiah promised in the Torah who came in the world for the salvation of mankind. In Christianity the Pope is considered as a decision making authority. Christian gentiles believe that people are born good or evil.
