Transcript of Junior Cert Religion Project

Christianity has changed from the time of Jesus from people believing in God to people questioning the meaning of life and if God is real.At the time there were more Jews then Christians so people had to follow their customs.Romans also made it hard since Romans weren't christian at the time and they were the ones who crucified Jesus.
Christianity At The Time Of Jesus
The way of life was simple but people followed strict rules.The family is awake at dawn.Then the animals are attended to and they have their breakfast of bread cheese and fruit.Then the boys go off to school.Then after school boys work with their father.Girls stay at home with their mother learning about home-making and child rearing they also tidy the house.women weren't allowed to go to school.The mother goes to the market every day and the father works at his trade or workshop.Boys leave school at thirteen.At the market people buy and sell things such as food and oil for lamps.There were no lighting or machinery such as games or phones at that time.
Houses and Meals
Technology and science has made a big impact on Christians today.This made people think more about life and make new theories about humans and religion e.g the evolution of humans.There are over 2.4 billion Christians in the world.That is one-third of the worlds population.The catholic church it the biggest denomination of Christianity of 1.09 billion people.
Christianity Now
A Church is the place of worship for a a Christain.People go to mass and celebrate Jesus' birth and Eucharist.They get baptized at a young age and do their confessions and confirmation.They get married and have children so they can continue the religion.A parish is a small community of christians run by a Priest and diocese is run by a bishop. The main archbishop is the pope who lives in Domus sactae marthae in rome.The current pope is pope Francis.
There are many forms of christians today like protestants, Anglicans, Orthodox, Catholic and Presbyterian. This is because people had different thoughts and beliefs about Christianity and people wanted to express there beliefs.E.g.Martin Luther created the protestant religion because he thought the catholic church was too corrupt.These forms within Christianity led to many wars.There was also conflict with christians and other religions such as WW2
Christian theology is expressed in ecumenical creeds. These professions of faith state that Jesus suffered, died, was buried, and was resurrected from the dead, in order to grant eternal life to those who believe in him and trust in him for the remission of their sins. The creeds further maintain that Jesus bodily ascended into heaven, where he reigns with God and that he will return to judge the living and dead and grant eternal life to his followers. His ministry, crucifixion and resurrection are often referred to as "the gospel", meaning "good news". The term gospel also refers to written accounts of Jesus's life and teaching, four of which—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John—are considered canonical and included in Christian Bibles.
types of christians
Houses at the time of Jesus were all the same.They were one roomed buildings which had stairs leading to the roof.The house was made of clay bricks and stone and was white washed to reflect the heat of the sun..At night the animal are put inside. There was an oil lamp at the center to light it up and a small chest to put any valuables.the family ate together at meal times they washed their hands and began with a blessing.Then they began eating.No cutlery was used.Fresh bread was eaten and the father will tell stories and it ended with a blessing.This was a typical house Jesus would have lived in.Now most house in the 21st century are bigger and more modern with electricity and insulation.
Christianity is the world's biggest religion, with about 2.4 billion followers worldwide. It is based on the teachings of Jesus Christ who lived in the Holy Land 2,000 years ago. Every day this community of faith gets bigger and bigger.
Way Of Life
The way of life for christians now is better and easier.I think that's because technology.Girls and boys are allowed to go to school.people are not allowed to marry at young age.we have our government now instead of different powers ruling us.
Technology and science.
There are not that many. colonial powers such as the Roman rule in Palestine.
Way of life was much different.
Belief is different since Christianity split into may forms.(denominations)
Life was much stricter back then.
Men and women are allowed to express their beliefs.
There is a big difference in population.
Christianity might not influence that many people today
Before Jesus died he was a traveling teacher.eg told people about god and his beliefs and a group of men followed him.He knew he would be crucified so he told his followers to teach people about Christianity.Later on Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and other followers created the new testament or bible which is the sacred text of Christianity.

History of Christianity: The Beginning of the Faith
History of Christianity -- how did it all start? Christianity started about 2000 years ago in Judea (present-day Israel) with Jesus Christ and His faithful group of disciples. During this period, Judea was a cross-cultural mecca of bustling cities and farms. The emperor of Rome was the ruler. The Jews at that time hated Roman rule -- it was but another reminder of the historical oppression they faced as a country. The polytheistic cultural beliefs of Rome were also pagan and intrusive to Jewish life. Some Jews saw that their only hope was to conform to this change. Others became religious zealots who formed pockets of guerilla resistance against Rome. Still others withdrew themselves into the Judean wilderness to study the Jewish law and wait for the eventual coming of their promised Messiah (savior).
Start of Christianity
Jesus' mother was a young jewish girl named Mary who lived in the village of Nazareth.One day God sent an angel to Mary.When the angel appeared the angel told her that she would have a baby named Jesus .Her child will be the son of God.Some time later Mary and her fiance Joseph traveled to Bethlehem to sign their names on the roman cencus.They found shelter in a stable. Mary gave birth to her son and laid him in a major.The rich and poor came to visit them.Jesus lived a normal life until the age of 30.He went to John the baptist at the river Jordan to be baptised.He spent the rest of his life preaching,teaching and healing the sick .His teaching were getting popular and the leaders and Romans were getting angry with him and knew they had to do some thing.On Thursday evening Jesus had the last supper with his Disciples and later that night he was arrested and put in trial.He was sentenced to death by crucifixion and Jesus knew that.On Friday he died on the cross and later put into a tomb.On Sunday friends of Jesus went to visit his tomb to find out he wasn't there.Jesus appeared to them.God had resurrected him.Jesus sacrificed himself for the benefit of his followers.So his followers thought and preached to the people and created the bible.Christianity spread really fast and is now the largest religion in the world.
