Notes
  1. The country now called Israel was called Canaan when Abraham moved there, and Palestine when Jesus lived there.
  2. 'Peace be upon him' - Muslims may put this after Prophets' names as a way of honouring them.
  3. 'Temple' is often used in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Sikhism (and by some American Jews) as a general term for a place of worship but you should learn the religion specific names shown here.
