What should I
know about Christianity? (scroll down for
Answer: Like with Judaism,
the actual religion of Christianity is not tested on so much. More
likely are questions about the Protestant Reformation, or Middle
Ages Catholic Church. Still, you should know:
1. Born between 6 to 4 BC,
Jesus Christ preached that people should love themselves, their
neighbors, God, and even their enemies.
2. According to written
accounts, or gospels, after the death (crucifixion) of Jesus, his
body disappeared from his tomb, and he appeared to his followers.
3. The New Testament of the
Bible was written by the disciples of Jesus known as apostles.
4. The head of the Christian
Church is known as the Pope.
5. Christians were persecuted
for hundreds of years in the Roman Empire. However, the Roman
Emperor Constantine had visions of a Christian Cross in the heavens.
He put crosses on his soldiers’ shields, and they won in battle.
Persecution to Christians therefore ended in 313 AD.
6. After the Fall of Rome,
Christianity spread throughout Europe. In the much later Age of
Imperialism, the religion spread to Asia and Africa. Note, people
who spread religion are known as missionaries.
