Abstract

The story of Gog and Magog in history is mysterious. Its different mentions in endless history make it interesting to discuss. In this paper, the author wants to explain the story of Gog and Magog according to the Semitic Religions, which includes Islam, Judaism and Christianity. It is expected that this paper can provide new references and knowledge. In this research process, the writer used a literature study using a comparative-analytic and historical research design in examining the contents of the holy books of the three Semitic religions, and the researcher used a type of library research to collect data through existing primary and secondary data sources. As for the results of this study, the authors found that Gog and Magog in the Semitic religions have similarities and differences. From their similarities, each of these three religions analogizes Gog and Magog as creatures who like to cause destruction and chaos on earth. And on the other side, the author finds differences in their story and history, one of which, in the Qur'an mentions them as Ya'juj and Ma'juj, while in the Bible and Torah they call them by Gog and Magog.
