Christianity is a monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Proponents of Christianity, or Christians, believe that Jesus is the Christ whose coming as the Messiah was foretold in the Hebrew Bible, or Old Testament, and whose activities are set forth in the New Testament. Christianity is the largest religion in the world. In 2020, Christianity had more than 2.4 billion followers. Christians make up the majority of the population in 157 states. Similarly, the doctrine of baptism, the sacrament, and the sacraments differs within Christianity. The common ground for Christianity is the confession of the Triune God - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Based on Christianity, Jesus is the Son of God who served, suffered, and died on the cross, but rose from the dead to save mankind. Jesus' life's work, teachings, and salvation are crystallized in the gospel, or "good news." They are described in the four canonical gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Christianity was born in the first century as a sect of Judaism. However, Finns did not begin to convert to Christianity until the 11th century. The first crusade to Finland was carried out in 1155 by the King of Sweden and Henrik, an Englishman who was appointed Bishop of Finland. It was followed by two other crusades to Häme and Karelia in the 13th century. Thanks to the work of conversion, Jesus was first considered in Finland to be one of the gods among others. He lived, worked, taught people, and gathered followers, mainly in the region of Galilee. The Followers of Jesus established Christianity largely based on the teachings of Jesus. According to Christianity, people who believe in Jesus and follow his teachings will receive salvation, that is, they will not be physically destroyed after death, but will live forever happy with God in a better place, in heaven. According to Christianity, this is the only way to get to heaven. God is carrying out His plans and speaking to mankind through Jesus. The second part of the Bible, the New Testament, tells about the life and teachings of Jesus as described by contemporaries. Christians believe the Bible, or at least the story of the New Testament, to be true, either directly or figuratively.

Etymology

A person who professes Christianity or belongs to the Christian denomination is called a Christian. The name is based on the Greek name used for Jesus, anointed (Χριστός) or Christ. According to the Acts of the Apostles, the name Christian was first introduced in the church at Antioch. The early Christians called themselves road walkers, which distinguished them from Jews and Romans.

History

Early Christianity

Christianity has its roots in Judaism, for Jesus was Jewish and most of the early Christians were Jewish. The Old Testament of the Bible comes from Tanak, an indicative collection of texts from Judaism. Most of the writers of the New Testament were also Jews who lived by professing and spreading Christianity. Other nationalities among the first Christians were at least the Samaritans and the ancient Romans. The central figure in Christianity is Jesus, who, according to the Gospels, lived in the territory of Israel at the beginning of time. The spread of Christianity began shortly after the crucifixion of Jesus in about 33 AD, when the Followers of Jesus established the early church in Jerusalem. In the first century of the beginning of the era, Christianity was spread especially by Paul of Tarsus and the apostles, or ambassadors. According to the Bible, Christians were not called
