Most historians believe Jesus was born between 6 and 4 BCE. I How Did Christianity Begin B) The Romans feared Jesus would lead a revolt against Rome. Jesus was arrested and crucified (hung on a cross and tortured to death). According to the Gospels, Jesus rose from the dead 3

days after his death, remained on Earth for 40 days, then rose to heaven. C) The followers of Jesus (disciples) became known as the apostles. Their goal was to spread the message that Jesus was the messiah. II Christian Beliefs A) Monotheistic. Jesus is the son of God. God takes on three

forms; the father, the son, and the holy spirit. Holy Trinity. B) Jesus is the messiah and will return to Earth to bring peace. *Jews do not believe that Jesus is the messiah. So Who Really Founded Christianity? The earliest Christians were Jewish! However, St. Paul (5 67 CE) argued that because Jesus died for our sins, Christians no longer need to obey all 613

laws of the Torah. *Christianity was now a separate religion from Judaism. II Christian Beliefs E) Belief in heaven and hell. The devil (Satan) was an angel who rebelled against god. F) When Jesus returns to earth, there will be a final day of judgment.

Originally written in Greek, the New Testament contains the Gospels (stories about the life and death of Jesus, written after his death). Unlike Christians, Jews do not refer to the Torah as the Old

Testament, as they do not believe that anything comes after it. V Christian Holidays A) Christmas celebrates the birthday of Jesus. B) Easter celebrates his resurrection. It follows the 40 days of Lent (a time of repentance, when you ask for forgiveness).
