The History and the Future of Christianity I am originally from Trinidad and Tobago that is located in the southern part of the Caribbean. Christianity is a way of life me back home because it's the most popular religion in my country. Christianity was first brought to our country by the England, who would colonize our country. During these times our country was inhabited by native Indians tribes. They were the Caribs and the Arawarks. When we were colonies by the English, they killed most of these Indian tribes who lived on the island. Judaism had a great influence on Christianity because most of Christianity teaching came from Judaism. Judaism and Christianity have the same thing in common for instance, they both believe in a supreme being called GOD and the basically have the same teaching of him and his son JESUS. Also they believe that God send him only begotten son to save the world from sin, his named was JESUS. JESUS was born in Jerusalem in c.4 b.c.e his parents were Mary and Josephs and he die in c.29c. In the early part of Jesus' life he was referred to as the messiah. The word "Messiah" means "anointed" and is referred to the ceremony of anointing a new king with olive oil. Jesus was known performing merciless healing to people on the street. After Jesus death his disciples wanted to continue his teaching so they created the books of acts. The Apostle Saint who wrote it was Peter and Paul. They wrote the books to spread the word and teaching of God all over the world. Today what we know about Jesus and Christianity is in the new testaments. The new testaments which are know as the Christianity core is use in religion ceremony all over the world.
