I. The Jews and the Romans
  • A. Jerusalem was the capital of the kingdom of
    Israel.

10
  • B. Israel, like other nations, was taken over by
    Rome and was part of the Roman Empire.

11
  • C. The Zealots were Jews who rebelled against the

    The Zealots were defeated, and the temple was
    destroyed.

12
  • D. The Jews rebelled again in A.D. 132 and were
    defeated again. In retaliation, the Romans
    forced the Jews to leave Jerusalem and banned
    them from ever returning.

    banished from Jerusalem?

B. Christianity is based off the teachings of
Jesus Christ, a Jew who lived about 2000 years
ago in what we now call Israel. Jesus taught his
followers to "Do unto others as you would have
them do unto you."
19
  • C. The Jews were looking for a messiah, or
    deliverer to restore their kingdom.

20
  • D. Some viewed Jesus as this messiah. Some did
    not.

21
  • E. Jesus used parables to give his messages.
    Parables are stories that use events from
    everyday life to express spiritual ideas.
  • 1. The Prodigal Son
  • 2. The Good Samaritan

22
  • F. Leaders in Jerusalem charged Jesus with
    treason and crucified him.

23
  • G. Jesus followers believed in Jesus
    resurrection, or rising from the dead. This
    belief led to the start of the religion,
    Christianity.

24
  • H. Some years after Jesus died, Christians
    combined the stories of the life and wisdom of
    Jesus into four books known as the Gospels.
    (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) Gospel means
    good news.

25
Volunteer to read
  • The holy book of Christianity is known as the
    Bible and has two parts. The Old Testament
    consists of the sacred writings of the Jewish
    people, and was written mostly in Hebrew long
    before Jesus. The New Testament of the Bible
    includes the Gospels, along with letters by
    Christian writers. The Bible has been translated
    into more than 1,500 languages and has been read
    by more people than any other book.

26
III. Early Christians
A. Christians believed differently than Jews.
Christians believed and still believe that Jesus
is the Son of God who came to save people. They
also believe people can gain salvation, or be
saved from sin and allowed to enter heaven, by
accepting Jesus.
27
  • B. Many Christians believe in the Trinity, or one
    God who exists in three persons Father, Son, and
    Holy Spirit.

28
  • C. Life was not easy for early Christians. Roman
    officials felt threatened by Christians and began
    to persecute, or mistreat, them in A.D. 64.

29
  • D. Many Christians became martyrs, people who are
    willing to die rather than give up their beliefs.

30
  • E. Nero even accused the Christians of starting
    the fire that burned much of Rome. Christianity
    was illegal for a time in Rome, and many
    Christians were killed.

31
  • F. Even though they continued to face
    persecution, Christians continued to spread their
    message of hope to the world. Finally, in 312
    A.D., the Roman emperor Constantine accepted
    Christianity.
