Difference between Jehovah ’s Witness and Jews

Judaism is one of the 4 worlds most well known religions while Jehovah’s witness is far common. Jehovah’s witness originated in the US in 1870s as a student movement as an off shoot of Christianity whereas Judaism dates back to more than a thousand years when Prophet Mosses walked the Earth.

Jews are followers of Prophet Moses and the Jehovah’s Witness (JW) since they are Christians follow Prophet Jesus. JW believe that Jesus is the son of God and believe that he was the first created being. They are very vocal about their beliefs and like to embrace it and publicly announce it. They also believe that the concept of clergy is improper and there should be no religious hierarchy however with their prominent clergy consisting of Rabbis and religious hierarchy Jews completely disagree with the JW on this topic. Moreover, JW absolutely disallow blood transfusion by mouth or by vein. This is to the extent that they would let someone die in need of blood but will not transfuse. Jews on the other hand believe strongly in saving a life and donating blood if that is what is required. Therefore in Judaism, if a blood transfusion is deemed medically necessary, then it is not only permissible but obligatory. However some Jews consider the blood of non Jews to be tainted because of what they eat and therefore disallow blood transfusion from a non Jew.

One of the fundamental themes of Jewish ideological framework is belief in the hereafter and an important part of this framework is the concept of Hell. JW, contrary to most religious beliefs and that of Jews, completely disregard the existence of existence of Hell and the hereafter. It is intriguing because even their own texts refer to the eternal punishment and the torture that will befall those whose act is not straight.

Jewish religion focuses greatly on the geographical importance of their forefathers land i.e. Israel and their modern day controversies have resulted from this orientation. JW apparently does not have any religious affiliations with a geographical location.

The most prominent difference between the two religions is that Judaism stands as a completely isolated religion while JW is an offshoot of Christianity and is influenced greatly by Christian religious beliefs.

Major Differences:

  • Judaism predates JW significantly.

  • JW is very recent.

  • Blood transfusion prohibition

  • No clergy in JW

  • No concept of Hell

  • Geographical affiliations

  • Judaism is a separate religion and JW is an offshoot of Christianity

  1. Was this written by a muslim? Jesus isn’t regarded as a Prophet by Christians, but is regarded as the Messiah promised to redeem humanity.

      • it was actually written by a Jew . you cannot compare Jew or Most cristians to JW or muslims
        JW and muslim everyday thank their creator and their prophet sent by God. JW have a concept about Hell,
        but is not what monitored religions example catholic has about Hell
        the word hell was intentionally wrongly translated from aramaic and hebrew.
        now you can tell which group is better just by looking at
        human

        im agnostic and i studied almost every religion and group and the most devoted to God are Muslims and JW

        • This person’s slander against Jews is full of ignorance and hateful lies.

        • If Palestine existed than please tell me were it was, what its form of currency was, who was its former presidents/kings etc.

          • You are going as far as to say there are no Palestinians or Palestine.The proof that they exist and existed is that humanity is asking you to stop taking over their houses and land with your stupid believe that they never even existed.

          • Actually, the name Palestine was the name the Roman Emperor Tiberius was the false name that was given to the Country in A.D. 137 after the Jews refused to submit to Roman Rule. They had previously called the Province Judea, which is the latin translation of Judah (Yehudi in Hebrew). That is where the name for the Jews came from. The Jews have also been known as the Israelites and the Hebrews. There had been two Jewish Kingdoms in this area as early as 1200 BC. For a time, they had been united as the Kingdom of Israel. There is ample historical and archeological evidence for the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah. The name Israel was the name of the Patriarch Jacob (grandson of Abraham and son of Isaac) after he had wrestled with the Angel of G-d. This is where the name Israel comes from and the Jews are often called the Children of Israel.

            As for the title of Palestinians, that was originally applied to all the residents of the province of Palestine, but only the Jewish inhabitants claimed the name Palestinian and later identified as Israeli, after Independence. The Arab residents identified with the greater Arab people. They only called themselves Palestinian after 1967 for Political reasons. Most of the Arabs present in Israel in 1947 came only after the Jews started coming back and building farms, cities, and businesses. There has always been a presence of Jews in Israel, even after the Romans

            During the time the West Bank and Gaza were occupied by Jordan and Egypt (won through conquest in 1948), there was no call for a Palestinian State, just a call for the annihilation of the Jews.

        • What you are is a misinformed bigot. None of these accusations against the Jewish people or Judaism have any basis in reality.

        • JESUS CHRIST is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. No-one come to the FATHER except thru him. All that reject JESUS CHRIST the MESSIAH in this life time will be rejected GOD the FATHER (JESUS )in the life to come. And all who reject CHRIST will be thrown into the lake that burns with fire along with the false prophet,and the beast

  2. Some Christian sects do believe Jesus is a prophet. Not all but some.

  3. Many people will say stuff. I have never dealt with a Jew. Cause of geographical location and what not. But the witnesses, if y’all wanna know something, just ask them. You can take your own bible with you as well and you’ll see that it’s the same scriptures only that they’ve rightfully added in Jehovah’s name. And they are not a recent group. In Isaiah, a book of the bible, god which is Jehovah said that his worshippers are his witnesses.
    So y’all be certain of what you say. These people are profound and zealous about true worship.
    I’m not a Christian, but from what I’ve seen, without the influence of the damn internet, these people are true Christians.
    As for the Jews, I only like that they’ve included God’s name.

  4. This person is a misinformed bigot. None of his accusations about Jews as a People or Judaism as a religion have any basis in fact. He needs to stop reading White Supremist and Antisemitic literature.
