In thinking about living in the first century Palestine as a Jew, I choose to focus on factors that influence political and religious loyalties: There is only one God.
In the first century Palestine, during this period, many people from Judaism believed that there was only one God because of the Jewish biblical tradition. Since “both Jesus and his original disciples were children of Israel, that primarily explainable in terms of Jewish customs and beliefs” (pg. 43). The shared beliefs were from the Hebrew Bible, which proclaimed that there is one God of Israel by the name of Yahweh (Deut. 6:4-5). They did this by remembering the most important commandment (Mark 12:28-30). This made them loyal to worship the God of Israel named Yahweh.
