I believe with perfect faith that the Creator, blessed be His Name, is the Creator and Guide of everything that has been created; He alone has made, does make, and will make all things.

I believe with perfect faith that the Creator, blessed be His Name, is One, and that there is no unity in any manner like His, and that He alone is our God, who was, and is, and will be.

I believe with perfect faith that the Creator, blessed be His Name, is not a body, and that He is free from all the properties of matter, and that there can be no (physical) comparison to Him whatsoever.

I believe with perfect faith that the Creator, blessed be His Name, is the first and the last.

Coincidentally, I am currently re-reading James Michener’s The Source which lays out a pretty good picture, I think, of the development of monotheism, and Jewish history across the millenia. It gets tedious in places, so I skip around.
