Christianity is the world’s largest religion today. In the Christianity religion, the main belief is that there is one God that exists. God created this universe, the earth with the first two people Adam and Eve. The sacred text of Christianity is the bible. The bible consists of two sections; the old and new testament. There are many different denominations of Christianity that has their own sets of beliefs and practices (Fisher, 2005). There is a trinity that many people deal with in Christianity. God comes in three which is formed into a trinity: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and Jesus are the son. Christianity religion is based on the teachings and miracles of Jesus. Jesus was born in Bethlehem around 6 AD to Joseph and Mary. Shortly after his birth his father Joseph passed away and Jesus took over his career as a carpenter. Jesus was a carpenter starting from early childhood through majority of his life. Around the age of thirty years old, after Jesus was baptized by John, he became consumed with the Holy Ghost which led him to fast for forty days and forty nights. Jesus became more intrigued with the Holy Ghost and his ministry began. His ministry explained, according to Luke 4:18, “The spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captures, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them who are bruised to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” From there Jesus began spending time teaching his disciples. His teaching included how to heal and help people.
