The life history of Jesus was not written down at the time, but eventually his life was recorded by Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John. Jesus was born a Jew and was raised in Bethlehem.
Believed God created all human beings equally.
Thought people should love God and one another.
His popularity was a threat to Jewish leaders and to Roman authorities. He was convicted of treason because the emperor was to be treated as a god. Pontius Pilate, a Roman governor and judge, had him crucified. Reportedly Jesus rose after three days, after reportedly going to hell and sending Adam and Eve to paradise. Thus, Jesus supposedly died for the original sin, and thus, the sins of mankind.
Jesus became known as "Christ" from the Greek word "Christians" meaning Messiah. The Greek symbol for "Christians" is an "X," therefore, calling Christmas "X-Mass" is not non-religious.
Christianity's Effect on Rome
The Spread of Christianity
All humans are sinful because of Adam and Eve.
Jesus was sent by God to redeem humanity from sins.
By dying on the cross, Jesus made it possible for humans to be saved.
Anyone could be saved through faith in God.
Christianity spread because of its appeal to those who led hard lives. Christianity gave a sense of community and fellowship to the people. The people saw others who were willing to die for a religion.
