Thank You! Jesus is born in Bethlehem to Mary and Joseph John the Baptist baptizes Jesus. This was when Jesus first began to take on his role as the messiah. After John the Baptist baptizes Jesus, God claims Jesus as his son. Jesus is crucified in Jerusalem after being sentenced to death by Pilates. Geography 4 BCE 1 2 3 There are many different Celebrations and Rituals in the Christian church and within each domination how they are celebrated is different Christianity is different in that people go to church on Sundays instead of Saturdays like the jews

The reason behind this switch in day of worship is not exactly known

Some say it is because in the New Testament the sabbath day changes to Sunday

These services may vary between denomination but usually include singing, some sort of sermon, and the prayers
Church on Sundays This is a hand movement done by many Christians to show their love of god

they move their hand from the forehead to each shoulder then down while saying the “Trinitarian formula”, which is "In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, amen"

It is said it comes from parts of the new testament

Not every division practices it but many do including Catholics possibly being the most consistent with this ritual

The Sign of the Cross An important Christian holiday celebrated by all divisions of Christians in the world

Christmas partly comes from the Roman pagan holiday "saturnalia" which lasted for a week ending on the 25th which is now the day of Christmas

The Christians wanted to convert masses of pagans, and to get them to want to convert told them they could still celebrate saturnalia but decided that it would be said that that was the day Jesus was born. Christmas The spring celebration of Jesus's resurrection

The 40 days leading up to easter is called lent when christians fast or give something up to remember the 40 days jesus spent in the wilderness and had to resist temptations from the devil

For the 50 days after easter christians remember it as the time when Jesus went up to heaven
Easter Approximately 15 CE Aproximately 33 About 312 The Roman emperor Constantine has a vision while in battle and subsequently converts to Christianity. 301 Armenia is the first state to adopt Christianity 50 days after the Crucifixion During the Jewish holiday Pentecost, shortly after the death of Jesus, his followers unify and try to spread his ideas to all of the people.
