Judaism: Yahweh, Elohim. Christianity: God, Jehova, Jesus. Islam: Allah.

Is the interpretation for this supreme entity the one and very same? Are all three Abrahamic religions referring to and worshiping the same God? Or is the idea and interpretations of God completely different from one another?

Yahweh and Jehova are same words with different pronounciation.

The original pronunciation of YHWH was lost many centuries ago, but the majority of scholars today prefer to use the form "Yahweh", meaning approximately "he causes to be" or "he creates".


And Elohim and Allah are also more or less same words from same grammatical root. Both mean "the God".

edit: I didn't yet gave a proper answer to your question but it is important to make etymology clear just in case.

Islam is based on the Prophet Mohammed receiving the 'Last word of God' via the Archangel Gabriel. That pretty well makes him the same divinity.

Yes. Yes and No. Different people and different times can and do have different interpretations but the same discussions are held in all three religions. For example you could find 3 differing interpretations, and find a muslim, a jew and a christian for each interpretation. The fundamentals are generally agreed upon. The biggest difference is the christian adoption of the trinity that varies from muslim and jewish beliefs.

But isn't it true that God, as accepted by Islam, Christianity and Judaism is the same God, perhaps called by different names, as opposed to the gods of the animalist and shamin folowings?

The God is creator of All That Is. The identification of my God and His will is always in question.

"Recently revisionist claims from archeological and biblical sources are being subverted to serve national agendas. Such as the Zionist and Muslim Fundamentalism. Palestinian archeologist claim Early Bronze Age sites were Canaanites, ancestors to the Palestinians.

Versions of the Ten Commandments in Deuteronomy and Exodus seem to have no direct connection with the major strands of the Pentateuch (no Moses). Israel's most ancient creedal recital the Magnalia Dei makes no mention of Moses.
There is a context for Asiatics escaping servitude in Egypt and mention of a Late Bronze Age deity called "Yhw" in Egyptian texts."

If any two or more religions recognise that there is only one God, then logically it must be the same God.

However, the differences between different religions' understand of "God" tend to make them different gods. For example, both Judaism and Islam deny the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity of God, i.e. that there are three persons in the one God. If you present them with the Christian God, they will say "That is not our God".
