History, Origin and Development of Christianity


 Christianity is founded on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Believers in this religion believe that Jesus is the Son of God, who was born without a father in the womb of mother Mary. Believers in this religion are known as Christians, their scripture is called the Bible.

Believers believe that as the Old Testament describes the history of the Jewish nation, it also hints at the coming of Jesus , and that he came to save mankind. He is the Messiah, or Savior.

Principles of Christianity

Catholics believe that the Holy Father, the Holy Son and the Holy Spirit are all three Gods, and Jesus is Jesus. Simply put, God has presented himself to man in three different forms. Judaism and  Islam reject the Trinity.

The Trinity and the belief that Jesus died for the sins of mankind are held by a large proportion of Christians to be central to their religion. Like other Abrahamic religions it is also monotheistic . The human Jesus was a Jew by race. He was the King of the Jews and performed many miracles-

  • He could raise the dead
  • He could heal the sick
  • He could control the weather
  • People were given food and drink
  • He returned three days after his death

According to the New Testament of the Bible , Jesus returned to earth three days after his death on the cross. It is recorded in the Bible that many people saw him at this time. After some time he went back to his father in heaven.

Besides the twelve disciples of Jesus, Saint Paul occupies an important place among the early Christian preachers . He authored several books of the New Testament of the Bible. After the death of Jesus, his disciples spread out in different directions and began to spread the teachings of Jesus among the people.

Who is the founder of Christianity?

Jews, Christians and Muslims differ about Jesus. Although there are different denominations, or churches, of Christianity, the monotheistic religion has Jesus Christ at its center – this is true of all. Jesus' life, teaching, death, resurrection etc. have appeared as the main subject of this religion.

Hence, Jesus can be said to be the originator of this religion. Through his twelve disciples it began to spread throughout the world. At one time those who depended on the Pope of the Vatican were called Popists.

Books of Christianity: There are two parts to the Christian scriptures - the Old Testament and the New Testament. Christians believe they live in the New Testament age, the Old Testament being the word of God and not applicable now. The Old Testament contains the things that other religions usually complain about.

History of Christianity: The beginning of this religion from the first century AD. After a few days after the death of Jesus, his disciples began to spread the gospel by enduring various persecutions and tortures in Rome. Later it was once accepted as the state religion of Rome. It is essentially a religion that is a continuation of Judaism , as is Islam. Because, Jewish history, prophets, books have all been assimilated. At the same time, it is an essential belief of religion.

Spread of Christianity: It was established as the state religion mainly after 313 AD. It continued to flourish from the time of Constantine.Song: Various devotional songs that followers of Christianity love to sing and listen to. These songs are also sung in Bengali language in Bangladesh. One such song-

The world's most followed religion has more than 240 million followers. Bangladeshi priest Patrick de Rosario is serving as a cardinal of the Catholic Church.

The name of the scripture is the Bible

The word Bible means book or books, in Arabic it is called Kitabul Muqaddas. Bangladesh Bible Society also used the Arabic name in Bengali, they did not invent new words. It is basically a collection of holy books. Muslims have a misconception that the Gospel in their language is the Bible. Actually this is not true .

Many of the common Muslims believe that Allah sent to Jesus (as) a book like the Qur'an, that is the Bible. In fact, the Christian Bible is not like that.

There are two parts to the original Bible, with different styles. Christians follow the New Testament of the Bible. Two parts of the Bible-

  • Old Testament
  • The New Testament

The Old Testament of the Bible
The Old Testament is one of the two parts of the Bible. The other part is the new rules. Although Christians keep the Old Testament as part of their books, they do not follow it. According to Christian believers, this applies to the people of that time, not today.

What does the Old Testament mean?

A total of 24 books in the Hebrew Bible are included in this section. You will find 46 books in the Catholic Bible and 39 in the Protestant Bible . These are the ancient writings of the Israelites called the Tanakh.
Incidentally, the original language of the New Testament was Koni Greek, written by the disciples of Jesus. It is divided into four parts-
  1. The first five books are called the Torah
  2. The second book of history describes the history of the nation of Israel
  3. The third is a book of poetic wisdom about good and evil
  4. The fourth is about the prophets of the Bible
Forgot to mention another thing, the Eastern Orthodox Bible has 49 books. Many Muslims unknowingly say that Injil is the Bible, but that is not true. Torah refers to the books that can be the Torah. This will be clarified in another article.

New Testament

The New Testament is the scripture of Christianity

The New Testament is the second part of the Christian Bible. It is essentially a collection of books dealing with the teachings, life and early Christianity of Jesus. There are total 27 books in this collection. They were written by Jesus' followers and disciples. Jesus' own words can also be found here. The Bible with only Jesus' own words is called the Red Letter Bible.

As I was saying, the 27 books of the New Testament are-

  • 4 Canonical Gospels
  • 1 containing the conduct of disciples
  • 14 books of Paul (Saint Paul).
  • 7 Catholic Epistles
  • 1 Aptavakya or, Book of Divination
They were written between 45 and 140 AD. The followers of Christianity follow the words of this book.

The word evangel means good news. The four canonical gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, are called the Gospels, or Gospels. Those who try to convert others to Christianity are called evangelists.
Jesus said:

Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day.

Baptism in Christianity

Baptism in Christianity

Baptism is a process of incorporation into Christianity. It is through faith and acceptance that the baptized person is a follower of Jesus. Christ's death by crucifixion and resurrection three days later are symbolically accepted.
It is publicly stated that:

"Go into the world. Go everywhere and announce the message of God's good news to one and all. Whoever believes and is baptized is saved; whoever refuses to believe is damned.” Mark 16:16 MSG

John the Baptist

John came to earth before Jesus was born. He is an important figure in Christianity, having a gospel in the New Testament of the Bible. His father's name was Zechariah and his mother's name was Elizabeth.

Elizabeth gave birth to a son in her old age and named him John which means "God is loving" . He was called by this name because John baptized his followers. He prepared the ground for Jesus' coming.

Differences between Judaism and Christianity


Both these religions are Abrahamic religions. The founder of Christianity, Jesus Christ himself (according to Jesus' mother Mary) was a Jew by race. Both are monotheistic religions and Jerusalem is a holy place for both religions . Through this article I will show you the difference between these two religions-

Monotheism : The Creator is considered to be one
Trinitarianism : Three forms of the One Creator are thought of.
Messiah means a righteous king

The Messiah refers to the One who is sacrificed for the sins of all, God.
There are no past sins, the reckoning of all sins begins at the beginning.The reckoning of man's sin begins at the time of Adam and Eve
The Torah is written and oralThe Torah exists only in written form
The Ten Commandments of Moses are heavenly, must be obeyedWe are under no obligation to obey Moses
All good people will go to heavenOnly Christians will go
The Jews are God's chosen nationThe Jewish nation in isolation is of no importance

Jesus Christ is the originator of Christianity


(Information collected from a website called  jewsforjudaism.org )

Besides, the New Testament of the Bible is of no importance to the Jews, according to the Jews, Jesus was nothing but an ordinary Jewish rabbi, and they do not believe in the miracle of the birth . The Creator is called Yahweh by both religions.

There are many other differences, including kosher food, Hanakah, and worship. If you notice more differences, comment in the comment box below.
David Abraham says about the Jewish faith-

“Deny the Trinity; there is only one God; Jesus is not the Son of God or the Messiah; the Holy Spirit is not a person”


What is called BC?

BC or BC means Before Christ ie before the birth of Christ. And, AD means AD or, Anno Domini or, Year of the lord. Here Jesus is accepted as the creator. For this reason, Jews and Muslims use BCE and CE instead of BC and AD. BCE stands for Before Common Era and CE stands for Common Era. Since there is no Lord in Bengali, we use AD and AD, BC.

Is Jesus Christ the prophet?

Yes, Jesus Christ is Jesus the Prophet. Jesus' language was Aramaic, and from Aramaic came Hebrew and Arabic. Jesus' name in Hebrew is Yeshua or Yeshua. Jesus came from Jesus to Jesus from Jesus to Bengal. And, Christ means the anointed one or the Messiah. No one disagrees that Prophet Jesus and Jesus Christ are the same person.


Last word: Christianity, or whatever the Christian religion is called, is the most popular religion in the world. Jesus is an important figure in Islam, a famous prophet.
