The Rise of Christianity Analysis

Good Essays
Why has Christianity grown so fast and how it’s spread through so many different counties. From what I have gathered from the readings I think some of the major events that happened was the temples getting destroyed over and over until they finally just kind of gave up. Also, how they stayed with other people no matter poor rich hungry cold, they even stayed and help people when the plague was there. That was when the religion really started to spread, due to people seeing more Christians survive and that Christians would take anybody in and help them. So over all, the rise of Christianity came from not just one thing, but many different things and what they did to help. Many liked Christianity because it was more appealing, happier, more assuring, and perhaps a longer life.

Even though the Mosaic arrangement of Judaism was designed to prepare the way for the coming of Christianity, the teachings of Jesus was so different from the Hebrew Laws, it was met with hostility from many Hebrew leaders of his time.

In conclusion Christianity had a pretty rough start with the destruction of all the temples. With all these people trying to stop the religion. But the two most powerful points are what women did for Christianity because they would always accept any form of person. And of course Constantine the Great, who started pretty much the freedom of religion. So look at how far we have come now it’s the biggest religion in the world and its still growing.
