    Jesus: Q1: why did you choose the easy way out? Becoming a Martyr is great to start a movement, but you could have done so much more in your lifetime. A: I knew becoming a Martyr would create such a 'doupler' effect which would last much longer in history compared to anything else I would do Q2: If you would be given the time to evaluate Christianity as it is now, would you do it again? A: What I see now is not what I wanted. I was not interpreted correctly and it needs to be undone as soon as possible. The questions are real, the answers of course are hypothetical - I would never speak in the name of a divine being.

    What are some of the symbols that are considered sacred or important to your believers? Moses: The Star of David is a six-pointed star made up of two triangles superimposed over each other. In Judaism it is often called the Magen David, which means the "shield of David" in Hebrew. The structure of the star, with two overlapping triangles, has also been thought to represent the relationship between God and the Jewish people. The star that points up symbolizes God and the star that points down represents us here on earth. Yet others have noticed that there are twelve sides on the triangle, perhaps representing the Twelve Tribes. Jesus: In Christianity, the cross became a sacred symbol.. It reminds Christians of God's love in sacrificing his own son for humanity. It represents Jesus' victory over sin and death, since it is believed that through his death and resurrection he conquered death itself. Muhammad: The crescent moon and star pre-dates Islam by several thousand years. This symbol became affiliated with the Muslim world after it was adopted by the Ottoman Empire. It acquired its association to the faith by association, rather than intent.

    How are the basic beliefs of your faith different from the other monotheistic faiths? Moses: Of the three religions, Christianity and Judaism are likely the most similar. Key differences are that Judaism does not believe that Jesus was the Messiah. Christianity teaches that God became a human being in the Person of Jesus Christ so He could lay down His life to pay the price for our sins. Judaism strongly denies that Jesus was God or that such a sacrifice was necessary. The difference between Judaism and Muslim lies in their basis for belief. Judaism is based on the unique historical event of a divine revelation experienced by the entire nation. Whereas Islam is based on the prophetic claims of a single individual who subsequently convinced others to follow his ways. Jesus: Christians believe in the sacraments as a process for preparing each believer to join God. The Roman Catholic Church follows seven sacraments.. Among these are baptism by which people agree to worship God and become Christian. Only Christians believe that Jesus rose from the dead in the resurrection. Muhammad: Muslims follow the Five Pillars of faith. These are the declaration of faith, prayer, almsgiving, fasting and pilgrimage. The declaration of faith reads, “There is no God but God (Allah), and Muhammad is the messenger of God.” Muslims are expected to give alms, or money, to those in need, and to fast, or refrain from eating, during the holy month of Ramadan, which moves according to the Islamic calendar. They also must journey to Mecca on the hajj at least once in their lives, if they are able.

    Why is the Holy Land an important site for your faith? Moses: My people regard Jerusalem as the holiest cities and the Promised Land. It is home to the Temple Mount, the site of two former Jewish temples. The Wailing is all that remains of the second temple. The mosque known as the Dome of the Rock sits where the temple once stood. The city of Hebron is also special to Judaism as the burial places of the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and their wives. Jesus: The Holy Land is an important site for Christianity because of its association with my birth, ministry, crucifixion and resurrection. Christians regard me as their Savior or Messiah. Many Christians return to Jerusalem to visit the Via Dolorosa. This is the path that I walked, carrying the cross on my way to crucifixion. I resurrected from the dead three days later. The Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem is also sacred as it is my birthplace. Muhammad: For Muslims, Israel's ancient city of Jerusalem contains sacred ground. Next to Mecca and Medina, Jerusalem is the holiest place on earth. It is where the angel Gabriel took me on a night journey from the Sacred Mosque in Mecca to the furthest Mosque Jerusalem. This night journey reinforced the link between Mecca and Jerusalem as holy cities, and serves as an example of every Muslim's deep devotion and spiritual connection with Jerusalem.

    What is the holy book of your faith and how does it compare to others? Moses: The Torah consists of the five books of the Hebrew Bible, commonly known to non-Jews as the "Old Testament". These are Books of Moses: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. The Torah includes within them all the biblical laws of Judaism. The Old Testament is also used by Christians. Jesus: The holy book of Christianity is known as the Bible. It is full of experiences and lessons for people to learn from. The Bible combines the Old Testament (or the Hebrew Bible) with the history and teachings of Jesus as recorded by his disciples in the 27 books of the New Testament, including the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The holy book of Christianity builds on the Torah by adding the stories and teachings of Jesus. Muhammad: The Qur'an is the sacred text of Islam. Muslims believe that the Qur'an is the very word of God Almighty and is a complete record of the exact words revealed by God through the Archangel Gabriel to Prophet Muhammad. The Qur’an is organized in 114 chapters called suras that record Muhammad's teachings in verse. The Qur'an is the principle source of every Muslim's faith and practice. Similar to the Bible, it deals with all subjects that concern us as human beings to include wisdom, doctrine, worship and law. The Qur'an provides guidelines for a just society, proper human conduct and equitable economic principles which is similar to the Torah and Bible.
