    Because the Jewish genealogical records were destroyed in 70 C.E. when the Romans razed Jerusalem, no Jew today can accurately determine from which tribe he himself is descended. Today Judaism is practiced by millions of Jews in the Republic of Israel and the Diaspora (dispersion around the world). Nevertheless, over the millenniums, the ancient Jewish religion has developed and changed. 

    “CHRISTIANITY exists only where the memory of Jesus Christ is activated in theory and practice.” (On Being a Christian) With those words, Swiss theologian Hans Küng states a self-evident truth: Genuine Christianity exists only where sincere individuals put Jesus’ teachings into practice. What, then, if individuals or institutions claim to be followers of Christ but do not, in fact, practice what Jesus taught? Jesus himself said that many would claim to be Christians. They would point to various activities to prove that they had served him, saying: “Did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?” How, though, would Jesus react? His dramatic words express his judgment: “I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness.” Matthew 7:22, 23.

    Judaism was created to be the people through whom the Messiah, the Savior of humanity, would come into the world. That event occurred 2,000 years ago, at which time Judaism became obsolete. Great numbers of Jews recognized the Messiah and followed Him, becoming Christians. Some did not, which is why Judaism still exists today, still awaiting a Messiah Who has already come to Earth and won our salvation.

    There are two huge differences.

    One, most Christians worship the heresy of the Trinity, which came from Greek philosophy.

    Two, Jews still wait for their Messiah to appear.  Christians believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah.

    Basically, on just about every fundamental you can think of, they differ.

    It's not clear what you mean by 'Judaism' but I will take it to mean the religion of the Jews (as Christianity is the religion of followers of Jesus.) The two are utterly bound together, whether Jews or Christians like it, or not. Some answers try to split them apart. It cannot be done according to the ancient writings that both religions claim to go by. Jesus had to be born as a Jew "to save His people from their sins" (Matthew 1:21) And to do that, He had to be the Messiah foretold in the Hebrew scriptures, who would fulfill the promise to Abraham, that through his seed, all nations of the Earth would be blessed. The difference between the two religions is simply that Judaism denies that Jesus was this Messiah, and Christianity says that He is. And the Christian scriptures say that the Jewish people will yet be saved - by discovering the reality of just who Jesus is.

    JUDAISM FOLLOWS THE OLD COVENANT, THEY BELIEVE THEIR MESSIAH WILL COME SOON.

    CHRISTIANITY FOLLOWS THE NEW COVENANT AS WELL AS THE OLD. THEY KNOW THAT THEIR MESSIAH HAS ALREADY COME IN THE FORM OF YESHUA THE MESSIAH, HE DIED FOR OUR SIN AND ROSE AGAIN AND IS NOW SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF YHVH FATHER GOD IN HEAVEN AND IS DUE TO RETURN SOON.

    The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of the Hebrew faith, and that Christianity is Judaism concluded in perfection. Its impossible to read and know the NT and miss that biblical fact.

    Jesus was a Jew in the flesh. Joseph and Mary were Jewish, as were the apostles and the earliest church.

    Written by an Hebrew, to, for and about the Hebrews......

    Hebrews 12:2 KJV — We look unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

    John 8:58 KJV — Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

    A lot. Jews don't celebrate Xmass, easter, eat non-kosher food, believe in the Trinity or the Messiah came and will come back, Jews pray in a synagogue every day, Christians pray once a week if that etc etc.

    The only difference is Judaism came first.

    Sine they both accept the age of enlightenment and values that came with it, very little. They're both just wishy washy personal things and that's the way it should be.
