The Israelites were initially a number of tribes who lived in the Kingdom of Israel and Kingdom of Judah. Liberal Jews, meanwhile, led by the leaders of the Reform movement, welcomed the effort while most Orthodox Jews rejected the term and all it implied.
We need to know. The term was invented in the United States of America in an attempt to create a non-denominational religious consensus or civil religion that, by embracing Judaism, avoided the appearance of anti-Semitism.
So although there are popular themes, or common views, no one group, or view, can claim to speak for either religion, and each religion comprises a scattering of traditions and beliefs which vary in universality, based around a common core, rather than a definitive description.
The term is commonly used by historians and academics as a shorthand for the predominant religious influences upon Western culture. Therefore, restricting the category to these three religions has come under criticism. The prophets, patriarchs, and heroes of the Jewish scripture are also known in Christianity, which uses the Jewish text as the basis for its understanding of biblical figures such as AbrahamElijahand Moses.

The original uses of the term have faded, and it now usually refers to a general Western religious background. It has also been criticized by some for excluding or marginalizing Islam, the third major Abrahamic religion.
After being conquered and exiled, some members of the Kingdom of Judah eventually returned to Israel. Today, seventeen years after that encounter, its import and implications are clearer. Fundamental differences between the two religions Edit Judaism and Christianity have many areas of agreement, as well as sharply defined ethical and religious systems that are in some areas opposites.
In the 16th century, the birth and growth of Protestantism further split Christianity into many denominations.

"Judeo-Christianity" is a mixture of American geo-political ambitions with Israeli Zionism, justified by references to the Bible by some Evangelical Christians.
And the reasons the "Judeo-Christians" see Islam as the enemy is not religious, but political. The term Judeo-Christian is seen by some to imply a rejection of Islam, the third major religion to trace its roots to the same common culture.
