The Origins Of Christianity


“Christ” comes from the Greek word Christos, meaning “anointed one” or “chosen one.” This is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew word Mashiach. Yeshua was obviously the beginning point of Christianity, but in reality he was teaching “reformed Judaism”. Paul is often cited as the person responsible for what is today “Christianity”, but much of what he preached was antithetic to Yeshua’s teachings. Emperor Constantine made Christianity the Roman Empire’s official religion, which brought uniformity, codification of beliefs, and spreading of the faith throughout the world.

Mark 12:30-31

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’[a] The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] There is no commandment greater than these.”


The Time Has Come

Revelations 19:11-13

“Then I saw heaven standing open, and there before me was a white horse. And its rider is called Faithful and True. With righteousness He judges and wages war. He has eyes like blazing fire, and many royal crowns on His head. He has a name written on Him that only He Himself knows. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and His name is The Word of God.…”
