It was simply started by a group but not a religion by those of those times, and most people who were educated wrote in Greek. Paul wrote his own, others did not write and had people write for them. and all of them were confused still especially paul and some of the apostles.

Re: How did Christianity get started?
the best "christainity" was started iin England by Joseph of A and some of the apostles and family and friends that went to Europe with him. They called it THE WAY. and what has come of the mess by Rome is far from THE WAY.

The FIRST "church" was in fact in Glastonbury and not in the area of jesus.

Atheism is the NWO lie.

Christianity was foretold to begin in prophetic books with the coming of Jesus, and was fulfilled. The histories of the Bible predate the Hebrew nation. Moses compiled the book of Genesis from earlier writers thought to have been witnesses back to and including Adam. (Wiseman Hypothesis)

Re: How did Christianity get started?
The New Testament was written in Greek because it was written by educate Romans. The jewish people wrote in Hebrew.

One of the theories I've read about that made sense was that it was started by Titus Flavius. His father was the Ceasar of Rome and it was the way they used to trick the Messianic jewish people into worshipping Ceasar.

This is why the center of Christianity is Rome. It was started in Rome and then Constantine made it the official state religion.

Re: How did Christianity get started?
It was started by the Roman empire during the reign of Emperor Constantine. The purpose was to control the empire by making one single religion the law of the land and all other existing religions illegal. It united the people under a single purpose - to conquer other lands in the guise of converting them and saving their souls. This aroused much more enthusiasm and fervor in the armies and made the soldiers fight harder. As the government of Rome then became the religion, the Church of Rome became the ruling body . The Roman Empire didn't really fall. It just changed form, became a church and continued to rule the world as The Roman Catholic Church, until the Reformation when countries began to break free from its control.

the people of that time in that area believed in hell. Jesus never taught such a thing because it does not exist. There are on earth some rather hellish lower astral realms filled with the ugly thoughtforms of man though.

The 16th century english word "hell" simply meant the grave. At the time potatoes were found in hell.

The end of the world and hell fire are described in OT books. From the very beginning in Genesis we find that "man is a living soul; the soul that sins shall die" repeated in similar NT famously John 3:16 "should not perish but have everlasting life", i.e. the sinner perishes at the end of the world or 6000 years when a new earth is created.

and much of that is goolash. Adam and Eve are not as portrayed in the OT. And they came 38,000 years ago to a fully populated world. Christianity was NOT foretold. Christ came to teach the HOW IT IS, not start a religion. You who believe ANY organized religion is the only true religion, no matter what you are raised in, have been deluded.

Your NT is about one small group of people. The world was populated thru out and you have accepted the material of one small group as being the only people who were on this world and this is not true.

That is the second coming.
Then Jesus comes back and destroys the enemies.

First coming is was as the suffering servant,
second is at the Conquering King, when he takes back what is his from the enemy and saves Israel.

But before that Antichrist arrives on the scene and pretends to be the Messiah but they will know when he turns on them.
