The belief in one God may be a Christian fact, but it also originated with the Jewish religion. Christians, however, differ from Jews in that they believe that Jesus Christ is the "Messiah" of the world. The Bible also tells Christians that Jesus was crucified on a cross and his death is what made the forgiveness of sins possible. After his death, Jesus rose again three days later and this is celebrated at Easter. Easter is considered the Christian person's most important holiday.

Each Christian denomination interprets the Bible differently and sets different church practices. The most crucial element of the Christian religion is the belief that the Messiah is real and is Jesus Christ. The Christian religion dates back thousands of years before the birth of Jesus Christ with prophets talking about the Christ's coming in the Old Testament. Theologians estimate that Jesus was crucified during 30 and 33 A.D. In 392 A.D., Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire. Since then, the Christian religions have divided amongst themselves to create new denominations.
