The Notion of God in Jewish and Etsako Traditions: A Comparative Study
Onimhawo, Prof John A.
Ogah, Dr Clement A.

This study examines the concept of God in Jewish and Etsako traditions, with a view to highlighting certain similarities and differences in their conception of the Supreme Deity–God. Deploying historical, comparative, interview and phenomenological techniques, this study unpacks some striking parallels and divergent views of the two ethnic groups, which culturally underscore their appreciation of the supremacy of God. It further contends that the two ethnic groups under investigation have similar conceptions of the Supreme Deity–God who is the creator of the entire universe. Consequently, the study posits that although the Jews and Etsako groups live in different continents with different geographical and ecological milieus their belief systems, worshipping of God indicate that human traditions and cultures are gifts from God which should be cherished, and used to improve the cause of humanity.
