Origin of name

In the New Testament, the name Christian was first called Christian (Christianos) by those who saw the members of the Antiochian church in Turkey. However, in the time of Saint Paul and Saint Barnabas, Christianity was a small community of Judaism called the Nazarenes, not an independent religion. In other words, they are called Christians, Christians, Christians, Jesuits, etc., but they all mean the same thing. Those who live the Christian life are those who follow Jesus and truly believe. In Latin, it is called Chrstianus (,-is: of a Christian).
