I think the answer may vary among jewish groups but what's the general consensus in the Jewish theology?

The God of Christianity is the same God as the Jewish God?

A point could be raised, as to which Christian God are we referring to? The father, the son or the Holy Spirit?

I don't know the answer to that. Perhaps the father?

The Creator God is the same God for the Jewish , Islamic , and Christian faith, all which makes these three belief non pagan ...... If these three beliefs have different creeds then that what make them theirs, so each will have opposing views for their belief

Look. If you are going to talk about the ''Christian'' God and intend to have a meaningful conversation, then get it right. The doctrine of the Trinity, whether you agree with the doctrine or not, is that there is one God in three persons. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are one God. Three persons or centers of consciousness who so deeply mutually indwell each other as to be one being. The Trinitarian doctrine is that God is one in terms of his essence or nature, but three in terms of personages.

And yes, the God of Christianity is the same God as the Jewish God. The difference is in how he is viewed. Keep in mind that the first Christians were Jews.

Now, you're asking your question of Jews so I'll leave you to your discussion. But at least have enough respect for the Trinitarian teaching to not call the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit three separate Gods. They are one God.

Religious Jews believe that only one God exists and that God is the same one worshipped by Jews, Christians and Muslims. They are really just three different flavors of the same religion.

...is completely irrelevant to the question.

Christianity, Judaism and Islam are all rooted in the same beginnings and are based on the same [supposed] 'god'...which is something that makes the animosity between these groups hilarious (apart from the fact that many ignorant/innocent people are dying because of it, a tragedy that is a major indicator that none of them are 'right').

If you want the opinion of Jewish people you should ask this on the Judaism forum.

No, it's not irrelevant. And if you have a problem with the fact that I addressed his misconception of the Trinity, I don't particularly care.

First of all, we need to define both of those God(s) or God, whatever. And then, determine which is the right one.
Good luck with that.

Trinity is relevant as "Jewish people" do not accept that concept. hence, you already have 2 different gods. One being one and one being three in one.
Also, concept of trinity is way past times when official bible was created and Yeshua times. It's a later add-on. Mostly Tertulian's.

As others have said above, the Hebrew God is the same as the Christian God (as the "Father"). Jews stop before the continuing revelation as revealed in the New Testament, with the additional "persons" of Jesus and the Holy Spirit also part of God (in entirety). Seen another way, it's as if the Jews cross out the personalities of Jesus and the Holy Spirit, to only leave the Father.
