Christianity and Jerusalem are really strong religious. More people believe in Christianity and Christianity is bigger than Jerusalem. According to 2011 Pew Research Center survey, there are 2.18 billion Christians around the world. There’s is about 20 million people being Jewish in 2016. Person who made Christianity was Jesus.

In 1000 B.

C., King David conquered Jerusalem and made it the capital of the Jewish kingdom. I think Christianity is more important and mire effect than Jerusalem but Jerusalem is also important in our future.

Some were Jews, but others were not. Sermon on the Mount Jesus encouraged his disciples with the Sermon on the Mount. ‘Happy are you when men insult you and persecute you and tell all kinds of evil lies against you because you my followers.

They met in people’s houses, many of which were owned by women. At these gatherings, Christians prayed and studied the Hebrew Bible. They also shared in a ritual meal like the Last Supper to remember Jesus’ death and resurrection. This is how Christianity started. Although Judaism as a religion appears for the first time in the Greek records during the Hellenistic period in about 323 BC — 31 BC and the first mention of Israel is inscribed in the wake of Merneptah dated 12131203 BC. C., religious literature tells the story of the Israelites dating back at least as to c. 1500 a. C. In individual religious congregations or synagogues, the spiritual leader is generally the rabbi. Rabbis are expected to be taught both in the Talmud and in the Shul khan Arukh (Code of Jewish Law), as well as in many other classical texts on Jewish scholarship. First few yours of Jewish were not really successful but after it became popular religions’ think both of them needed time to get popular and allow in countries but Christianity was faster because Jesus spread it faster than Jewish people. Both of them were really successful I ending but in future that would change really fast. Christianity is one of the biggest religion existing today. In world almost 40% people are Christians what is really good for a religion. Jews is smaller but still big with almost one 25 milions people being Jews today.

Christianity biggest growth happened from 1966 to 2018 with from 2.3% people being Christians to 38.3% today. In 2050 3 billion people will be Christians. Christianity is biggest religion in our history. Christianity is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Most important book in Christianity is bible and it is written by Jesus of Nazareth. Bible have all rules and most important beliefs and things for Christianity. Original copy of Christianity bible is in Vatican library. Vatican is safest library in the world. In the world there is more than 5 billion copy of bible. Bible been translated to every language in world. The symbol of Christianity is cross. Cross, the main symbol of the Christian faith, recalls the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and the redeeming benefits of his passion and death. The cross is thus a sign of both Christ himself and the faith of Christians. The Christians place of worship is called church. They are often built in the shape of a cross with the altar facing east towards the rising sun. The Christian spiritual leaders are called priests or ministers. The growth of Jews is from 1900 to 2010 and it is from 8milions to 18milions.there will be 20milions of them in 2050. Jews most important book is Hebrew bible. Most important beliefs and information’s about Jews. Original copy of Hebrew Bible is in the Vatican library. There are 100, 000 copies of Hebrew bible today. It been translated to more than 50 languages around world. Synagogue is worship for Jewish people. Shield of David Star of David, Hebrew Magen David. Jewish symbol composed of two overlaid equilateral triangles that form a six-pointed star. It appears on synagogues, Jewish tombstones, and the flag of the State of Israel. The future of Christianity is really shining. People are saying by year 2100 only religion existing will be Christianity. Already almost half world is Christians. In future there will be more copies of bible, churches, Christians, crosses, etc. For Jewish future is not that good they can continue growing like today. In future there will be more Jewish, synagogues, copies of Hebrew bible, etc.

I think Christianity is really successful regions and it will be most successful religion ever in past and future. Jewish smaller than Christianity but it was and will be really successful. They are growing really fast. Point of having religion is the purposes of the practice of a religion are to achieve the goals of salvation for oneself and others, and (if there is a God) to render due worship and obedience to God. Different religions have different understandings of salvation and God. I think both of religious were important for our history and it will be important for our future. A lot of things would not happen if religious never existed. People will be lost and don’t have goals in life. Religions teach us to be together and to love our family, neighbors and people close to us. Also to don’t do illegal things to live healthy life to don’t drink or smoke.
