Christianity was born in the first century of AD, in Roman Judea. Jesus the Nazareth, who later is known by Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem. He went around teaching people his ways, which Jews and Romans saw as rebellious. Some say he preformed miracles on the sick and the dead. He was later crucified in Jerusalem on a cross, in 33 CE. Christians believe that he rose from the dead and appeared to his followers. Christianity was originally formed as a part of Judaism.
