Protestantism arose as a "protest" movement against certain practices of the medieval Roman Catholic Church. While Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches have an episcopal (led by bishops) form of church government, Protestant churches may be congregational, presbyterian, or episcopal in structure. Many members of Protestant churches do not feel that they are necessarily "protesting" anything today. Nevertheless, in general, most Christian churches that are not Roman Catholic or Orthodox are typically considered "Protestant" (including most "non-denominational" churches). Though Protestants hold a variety of views on many issues, including the number and significance of the sacraments, Protestantism generally emphasizes the authority of the Bible and that salvation comes by God's grace and by faith alone. Christianity originally arose as a sect within Judaism. Topic 2 will examine Judaism, not only its role as a foundation for the Christian movement, but as it has developed throughout history, by examining the practices and experiences that continue to shape Jewish identity today.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
