The video is divided into three major uneven parts. The first part deals with Judaism, the second part deals with Christianity, and the third deals with Islam. Due to the fact that Christianity takes much of Judaism as its own, and islam takes parts of both Judaism and Christianity, the first part is the longest, and the third is the shortest. A must see (and read).
