Curiosity and interest move around Christianity as the religion is known to expand its teachings into something meaningful and beneficial to the world. Thanks to that, stepping forward to explore the same will surely help you make the most of it. While real exploration tends to take time, there are ways through which you can make it happen within a matter of time. So to help you out in that regard, here’s the religion of Christianity at a glance.
The Holy Bible is known to be the religious book of Christianity, and it is ideally divided into two parts, i.e., the Old Testament and the New Testament. As prophesied by the Old Testament, Christians tend to believe that Jesus is the Messiah and the promised deliverer of the Jewish nation. Due to that, the teachings of Jesus and his path towards life is what Christians accept and the main ingredient that Christians love to follow.
While Christians believe that only one God exists, they understand that it is comprised of three beings, i.e., The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. This belief is strengthened with the understanding that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and was sent to earth to save humanity from the many consequences of sin.
The Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ
The books of Mathew and Luke are the source through which we understand the story of Jesus’s birth, and that can be found in the New Testament. His birth is the very realization of the many prophecies that are mentioned in the Old Testament. Until the age of 30, very little is known about Jesus’s life, and it was at this age that his ministry began with his baptism near the River Jordan.
Coming to the death of Jesus Christ, it is widely known that it occurred in 1st-century Judea. Popularly referred to as the Epistles of the New Testament, the crucifixion is detailed in all four canonical gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John. Apart from that, the event is also known as a historical one that has been confirmed by non-Christian sources.
While the life and death of Jesus Christ were the beginning stages, the resurrection was the one that forms the foundation of the Christian faith. Without the resurrection, the belief in God to be the saving grace of his son is completely destroyed. As a result, understanding Christianity begins with exploring the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
These simple points tend to act as the beginning stages of your entry to Christianity. While they do not sum up the entirety of faith, it provides an opportunity for you to explore and begin your life of faith.
