• Jesus of Nasareth was a Jewish rabbi, and his followers created Christianity. So, although the Jews didn't create it per se, they are considered a factor. Naturally, not every single follower of Judaism believes that they created Christianity, in much the same way that not every Christian believes that Darwin was a liar.
  • Judaism was started with Abraham, or Moses, depending on how you want to look at it. If you believe the Bible, it started with Abraham. If, like many of the people on here try to claim, you think the Bible is a book of fiction, the first books were written by Moses. Christ was a Jew - that's why they say their followers created Christianity. Most of the members of the early church were Jews. Much of the Jewish Bible is also contained in the Christian Bible. The Jewish Bible prophesies of the coming of the Messiah - which we Christians claim to be Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
  • Well the old testiment of the bible is where judaism began with Abraham, Moses, etc... Jesus was Jewish and the difference between Jewish people and Christians, is Christians believe that Jesus was the Messiah, and Jews are still believing in just the old testement.
  • How about a bunch of Jewish camel herders who appointed themselves as the chosen ones and pulled the biggest prank ever on the rest of humanity?
  • 12-16-2016 It is not reliable to let people to tell you what the bible says. Many people will make up stuff because they don't know what it says, and many will make up stuff because they wish it would not say what it says. You just have to read it for yourself. Read a chapter of Proverbs every day. Proverbs has 31 chapters so you can keep your place by just looking at a calendar. There is no religion or nothing in Proverbs and you don't have to believe anything. Just read to find wisdom. When you are comfortable with that, then read the bible from Romans to 2 Thessalonians over and over until you start to remember what it says. That is the part that applies to Christians.
