What is Christanity?
Christianity is one of the world’s most practiced religions. Christanity is a monotheistic religion, which means we believe in one God. Christians believe in Jesus Christ and follow his teachings. We believe Jesus is God’s one and only son, sent by God to become human, live on earth and then die for our sins. Most Christians believe in the holy trinity the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and that Jesus is the Son of God who rose from the dead after being crucified; a Christian right to attain eternal life after death through having faith in Jesus Christ.
The Bible is a book written over a period of thousands of years by many authors. It tells one story which is about God's acting in the lives of people.
The Bible has two main parts. The first part is called The Old Testament, the second, The New Testament.The Old Testament begins with Gene sis, which means "beginnings." The last book of the New Testament is called Revelations, which reveals how everything will end. The first books of the Old Testament are a history of God's dealings with people. There are also books of songs (Psalms), wise sayings (Proverbs), and books written by prophets. All of these books point toward events which are recorded in the New Testament. The first four books of the New Testament are historical records of the life and teaching of Jesus, called the Gospel( The Good News). The next book, Acts, tells what Jesus did in the lives of his followers.
Easter is also a major holiday. We celebrate the day Jesus rose from the dead. After Jesus was crucified, Christ's body placed in his own tomb. A large stone covered the entrance and soldiers guarded the sealed tomb. On the third day, a Sunday, several women went to the tomb at dawn to see the body of Jesus. Once they got to the tomb, the tomb was empty.
