according to judaism? the first believer or prophet in judaism was abraham or moses?
and why? if abraham didn’t know anything about laws and the only covenant between abraham and God was the circumcision but moses was given the laws to the people of Israel? so what makes abraham and moses in the judaism very important?

The word Judaism is no where in Torah. Jesus came with a new book and Jews rejected him.

  • Heinrich says:

    Actually if Job was written before the Torah like some jews even believe, he was the first prophet that has his own book, however Adam was a prophet.

  • Harv says:

    Hebrews 11:8  By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
    9  By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
    10  For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
    11  Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
    12  Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
    13  These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
    14  For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country
    .Hebrews 11:15  And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
    16  But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
    17  By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
    18  Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
    19  Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.
    20  By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.
    21  By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.
    22  By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.
    Hebrews 11:23  By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment.
    24  By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;
    25  Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
    26  Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
    27  By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
    28  Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
    29  By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

    Abraham set in motion as the first Hebrew (One who crosses over) through faith, the line which led to Moses so technicaly He was a prophet before Moses.

  • Ascender says:

    Jacob, later named Israel by God. His sons became the progenitors of the tribes of Israel (the nation).

  • Black Mack says:

    Well, Abraham is important in as much as his story establishes that, in his religion, you can be expected to perform executions of people (including family members) as human sacrifices and that it is, therefore, a primitive, uncivilised, barbaric and thoroughly contemptible human sacrifice cult and an insult to humanity.

    Modern Society & Culture has no business even allowing human sacrifice cults to have charitable status, let alone run schools or receive any public funds in support of any of their institutions.

  • Suspension Notice says:

    dam tough one to keep up with . but neither
    it leads back to Seth . Tho no records survived the Roman Conquest little is known as to his lineage . several areas in the text points back as descendant but as Abel was dead and Cain set out of Eden the line of Seth being the only air to the throne of god . Adam above all the other men was considered a king . high king .

  • affinity292 says:

    Abraham. And Abraham did know the Laws. Even though they were not “given” yet and therefore not binding yet, he knew them and chose to live by them anyway.

  • kaganate says:

    “Judaism” means “the religion of the Judeans”.
    This is an external terminology applied from about the sixth century BCE by others to the “children of Israel”.
    Abraham was the person who broke away from the Chaldean ethnicity and religion to start his own clan and his covenant with God.
    The clan covenants starting with Abraham and through his son Isaak and his son Jacob/Israel are the creation point of the clan/nation of Israel.
    The covenant of Moses is the culmination of that whole dynamic.

    But if you are talking “prophets” rather than “fathers” — then as someone mentioned, the teachings go back to Shem and Ever (and obviously back to Adam).
    We are taught that these two taught Abraham and Isaak and possibly Jacob/ Israel.

    (and much like some foreigners call us “Hebrews” which remembers Abraham, the German Jew-haters invented for themselves the term “anti-Semites” — to recognise the Jews as the spiritual heirs of Shem)
