Many people view Judaism and Christianity as separate religions, they are not.
Christians tend to emphasise the idea of Jesus as part of a triune ‘godhead’ in the manner of ancient pagan religions based on the Nimrod/Semriage/Tammuz tradition with God, Mary and baby Jesus figuring largely in the major Christian tradition. A tradition controlled by a ‘head of the Church’’ and a hierarchy of priests, bishops ec.
In Judaism we have Rabbi worship. Rabbi’s pop up after the destruction of the Temple, Sometimes referred to as Sages, they hold that ‘tradition’ is more important than scripture, taking the idea of the Mishna, the verbal commentary as of greater import than the Mosaic text itself, especially given that this non-scriptual commentary is controlled by themselves.
The Tanach/Bible is available for all to read, but the vast number of people do not read the scriptures, they are happy to let others interpret for them. This has always been the major source of problems for those who seek the truths of Yah and a personal relationship with Him.
