The three religions are (in order of start).
- Muslim-ism (Islam)
It is also interesting to note that these three religions actually believe in the SAME single god.
Islam, Judaism, Christianity, also known as the Religions of the Book or the Abrahamic religions, are the three main monotheistic religions, though there are countless smaller ones. These three religions come from the same branch; Abraham, a citizen of the Babylonian city of Ur, who decided (or was told by God) that, rather than worshiping dozens of Babylonian Gods, he would worship just the one. There are also theories that monotheism truly started in Egypt, when Akhenaton tried to instigate the worship of Aten as a single god.
Minor monotheistic religions include : Shonan, Dogon, Massai, and Carib.
If you're talking about Islam, Christianity, and Judaism...these three religions are all monotheistic. They accept that there is only one God.

ANSWER: The three oldest monotheistic religions still in practice today are: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Hinduism (polytheistic) is considered to be one of the world's oldest religions along with Zoroastrianism.

It is the belief in the same God; the Creator; as the one and only one God to be worshiped. The three religions are monotheistic religions: they believe in one all-powerful God. They also all believe in the existence of Abraham, and consider him a prophet. As such, another term for them are the Abrahamaic religions. (While Jews don't usually accept the existence of Christ, Muslims do (however, Muslims recognize Jesus as a prophet)
All three major monotheistic religions could be said to share the same "God" because certain events surrounding that specific God overlap in religious stories. There is conflict because each religion celebrates Him differently and while Christians may believe their way is the right way, Muslims or Jews may believe differently or vice versa.
A: The three major religions in Europe are alike because Judaism was the parent religion of the other two. They share key beliefs derived from Judaism, such as belief in one God. The three religions are often called the Abrahamic religions because they all believe in the historicity of the patriarch Abraham, as an ancestor of Jews and Arabs, as well as the spiritual ancestor of Christianity.
Christianity is one of the three monotheistic religions, religions in which the belief is in one God. Christianity arose out of Judaism with the life and teachings of Jesus. After His death His followers continued His teaching. They are known to us as the early Christians from the word christ meaning the messiah. This was the beginning of the Christian religion.
