This paper discusses how the religious views of the Mesopotamians, Egyptians and Hebrews all had important implications on each culture's unique view of life and death, including the afterlife. It looks at how each religion developed according to the history and reality of the people living during their time. It examines how the Egyptians and Mesopotamians developed a polytheistic religious outlook, while the Hebrew people developed a monotheistic culture. It considers how the Hebrew religion is much more similar to the Egyptian religion considering its positive outlook and affiliation with a God or gods, unlike the Mesopotamian belief system which may be considered very negative. It shows how ultimately, though each of these religions are different, they developed as a result of the physical and cultural influences of the people living during ancient times.
