    As we know it today Christianity is a mix of several faiths and influenced greatly by four men Paul, Constantine, Augustus and Luther.

    Christianity is a derivative of the Jewish faith. The root of the term 'Christian' is 'Christ' which is a transliteration from the Greek term for 'Saviour.' The Hebrew term for Saviour is 'Messiah.' Jesus was born a Jew and was crucified for claiming to be God, and the fulfillment of Scripture - which according to Jewish law is the appropriate judgment for such a blasphemy (if the claim was a lie). However, the Christian perspective is that the claim was true. There are some people who claim to be Jewish and believe the Jesus is the Messiah, but many other Jews don't consider these 'Messianic Jews' to be Jewish anymore.

    Jesus. The whole story? That would take a while. The basics are - we sin. Sin separates us from God. The punishment for sin is death (eternal separation from God). Jesus served our punishment for us on the cross when He died - being the Son of God, fully human and fully God. He was resurrected in victory over death and sits at the right hand of God the Father. He sent the Holy Spirit to counsel and guide us. Acceptance of Jesus' free gift of salvation is what makes you a Christian.

    The short version.

    Supposedly from Judaism...but it's gone off the rails, with being much like Judaism! But Paul started Christianity!

    The Christian movement was not a religious system that gradually evolved out of the cultural elements of antique society. It had a dramatic point of beginning. There are no traces of its roots in either Assyria, Babylon, Egypt, Greece or Rome. Prior to the spring of A.D. 30, Christianity did not exist.

    Well it comes from Jesus the Christ and by way of His church down to the present day, however the term Christian was not used until the 2nd century and it was first applied at Antioch.
