The five major world religions – John Bellaimey

The five major world religions – John Bellaimey

Explore the intertwined histories and cultures of the major religions: Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam.

It’s perfectly human to grapple with questions, like ‘Where do we come from?’ and ‘How do I live a life of meaning?’ These existential questions are central to the five major world religions — and that’s not all that connects these faiths. John Bellaimey explains the intertwined histories and cultures of Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam.

    Nice depiction of Israel. You just missed Palestine there

  4. Theresa K on September 7, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    This is one of the most unbiased things I’ve ever encountered on YouTube

  5. Orange Soda on September 7, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    religions are pure and edifying the world yet it’s the humans who corrupt cruel ideals to them.

  6. Chiasmata on September 7, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    Siddartha didn’t become the first Buddha.. There were many more Buddhas before Him..

  7. Miss Robot on September 7, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Er… That’s awkward… I’m Buddhist and we are a non theist religion.

  8. dammed water on September 7, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    21st century means common sense applied. god exists or not these practises r outdated. id like to c an actual modern religion but until then drinking wine as the body of christ is nonesense. get real

  9. Anush Gudimetla on September 7, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    In Hinduism, atheism isn’t considered a sin or problem.
    And the original name of Hinduism was Sanatan Dharma, and existed before Krishna

  10. ßudha on September 7, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Jesus not came to establish a religion! Remember that.

  11. The Number on September 7, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Please research history where bhaudha was born
    Where he was born where he lived?
    Specific place palace name ?
    Please search for Truth
    It will be unfair to claim
    That the bhaudha origin was in India
    Think twice before you post about something
    You ever visited where he was born

  12. Sadia Hossain Zinia on September 7, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    No matter what Islam is the most beautiful, decent, logical and successful religion , Religion of peace, Islam teaches us to respect others religion too! Proud to be a Muslim… May Allah peace upon us..

  13. Ah Chruy on September 7, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    世界中、2大宗教だけです。 残りは宗教では、有りません。

  14. Аксофил on September 7, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Christians celebrate Christmas in December.

    Orthodox Christians: "Am i a joke to you?"

  15. Imam Shad on September 7, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    I wish religion was never an option

  16. Danish Rasheed on September 7, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Buddhism is not a religion , its a philosophy. I’d like to tell you , Buddha was an agnostic.

  17. Wyatt Scott on September 7, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Some people say that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. But that is not true.

  18. Simran Singh on September 7, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Sikhism is the fifth largest religion.

  19. Schuyler Shaun on September 7, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    fun fact: Islam is the most recent major religion

  20. Montaser on September 7, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Islam – which seems to be the only religion that is not named after a race of people, like Judaism and Hinduism, or after any single person like Buddhism or Christianity. ‘Islam’, the name given to the religion in the Qur’an is by God Himself, God, in Islam, is not only the Lord of the Arabs or the Muslims but the Lord of all human beings and all the worlds, who states in the Qur’an, ‘We have honoured the Children of Adam’ (17:70) – all the Children of Adam are ‘chosen’ by God to be honoured.

  21. Bobby Aniedi on September 7, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    I wonder why people have to force others to leave their religion and come to theirs..

    That’s the major reason of conflicts today

  22. nandakumar t on September 7, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Belive in science ,it is the future …

  23. Min Khant Win on September 7, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    I am a Buddhism.

  24. David Bacote on September 7, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Why is Judaism on the list when it’s adherents are less than 2 tenths of 1% (actually .18%)?
    There are more Sikhs.

  25. Ahmed Lemin Dah on September 7, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    sérieusement cette vidéo contient beaucoup de Ment, et des fautes informatiques.

  26. Buddha on September 7, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    I’m Buddha and I respect every religion

  27. G H on September 7, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    You’d quantify anything you idiots even your love for your wives and children.

  28. heena kudu on September 7, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Hinduism never started.i was already there.it did not strated by lord krishna.he was a god in a human form.hinduism is an truth of this world.

  29. kigozi phillip on September 7, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Religion the best lie ever told

  30. Imam Shad on September 7, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    I wish peace was a religion option and everyone could choose their religion after being 18, not given by their parents.

  31. VacoTheDunce on September 7, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    We should all thank Christians, there is Christmas because of them xD

  32. The Number on September 7, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    Please delete this video or recreate
    This is not the truth
    If this channel is saying this it totally
    Favoritism

  33. Hazem Darwish on September 7, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    I’m no Muslim but you didn’t do Islam fair!

    the msg of Muhammad which you haven’t mentioned was: "I only came to complete the good morals/manners"

    by that he acknowledges the two past msgs of Moses and Jesus and saying he is only there to complete the msg, by setting the final lines and points.

    and assuring that he is the last prophet of all 25 that starts with Adam and ends with Jesus->Mohammed

    Islam is very much identical to the other two, only more clear, with sets about how to pray, behave and etc…

    I only said you missed that, cuz you only explained Islam, but not said the msg of it like you did with all others!

  34. 송윤재 on September 7, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    종교는 솔직히 있다해도 절반은 인간이 지어낸거 아닌가요?😂

  35. Farzan Amin on September 7, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    The narrator is wrong in Some way ISLAM began way before the Earth was created with the creation of adam Alas Salam ..

  36. Anush Gudimetla on September 7, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    Hinduism was not started by Krishna. Hinduism existed long before Krishna.

  37. NTM _JAN on September 7, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Islam❤️❤️

  40. The Number on September 7, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Bhaudha was born in Nepal not in India
    He was searching for peace
    Leaving the palace

  41. unknown user on September 7, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    It’s horrific when people fight to justify their respective stories. 😔

  42. Michael Ferto on September 7, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    ……A nice overview. I read different numbers of adherents to these religions……However, your numbers are interesting…….

  43. Jack Mc breen on September 7, 2021 at 11:39 pm

  44. The Number on September 7, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Please research well then only post
    It so unfair to claim that bhaudha was born in India how can you s
    Lie so proudly I like this channel untill this video

  45. rug on September 7, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Honstly the only reason i doubt there is a god while not being an atheist is because why would god not have the ability to tell each one of his creations that there is no need to doubt

  46. Jahangir Alam on September 7, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    religion: way to respect and live peacefully.
    people: *peace was never an option*

  47. Angkita Ghosh on September 7, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    The pronounciation of Dharma is..😅

  48. VK B on September 7, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    I have noticed an interesting thing, Abrahmic religions are centered around god & worship while religion of Indian subcontinent are centered around way of life rather than god.
