    • Do christians know that the bible and christianity is 2000 years old?

       

      Do they also know that christiantiy branched out from judaism and that judaism (the old testament) is a religion of the jews and is about 3000 years old?

       

      Do they also know that jews who practice judaism view christianity has a deviant group?

       

      Just curious!

    • Most won't know how old bible is unless they are bible scholars.

      Somehow christianity is also cult in some ways.   They view japanese floral arrangement,  TCM, yoga, and many others as satanic.   To them anything not from god is satanic.   Such teaching leads to or encourage christians to be unreasonably judgmental.   DISGUSTING AND DETESTABLE.

    • Though it is true that Jesus was a Jewish reformer and Christians adopted most of the Original Testament, but early Christians changed the Original Testament and didn't adopt the the rest of the unwritted laws and histories that existed in Jesus' time.

      Mostly thanks to Paul, Christianity is a religion created for Gentiles or the non-Jews, that in most cases, has branched severely away from the teaching of Judaism and even Jesus.

      So are you saying that 'older' religions must be 'more true' that newer religions? You also do know that Judaism and Christianity largely agree on the events that happened for over a thousand years (including the existence of God and how He created the world) before Jesus Christ came along right?

      Yes, most Jews don't consider Jesus to be the Messiah (saviour). Your point?

      Only the New Testament is 2000 years old. The Old Testament has books that are 4,000 years old.

      The Old Testament (not Original Testament) has not changed. But some parts are no longer followed. For example, the OT forbids the eating of pork, which observant Jews still follow. But Jesus allowed pork to be eaten. 

      Mathew 15:11. It is not what goes into the mouth that makes a person unclean. It is what comes out of the mouth that makes a person unclean."

      So eating pork does not make you unclean but telling lies or inciting violence will.

    • Christians follow both th Old and New Testament, of course there are some changes to following the Old one, an example is what hastings stated

      Remember Jesus didnt abolish the Old Testament Law =D

      Unfortunately some Christians do this and give Christianity a bad name. But the fact is not all Christians think this way.

    • The Old Testament was derived from the "Torah"(Hebrew). Modern Bible Scholars call it the Pentiteuche. Five books of Moses. Psalms & Chronicals were written by David. Proverbs, Escleciastes, Songs of Songs were written by Solomon. Many were were historical recordings of Israel from the rign of the Babylonians to the reign of the Persians till the Romans.

      The New Testament, the 1st 4 Cannonical Gospels were written by Mark, Luke,Matthew, John represents Jesus as Man & Deity, Jesus as King & Servant. Represented by the four banners of Israel of the Man, Eagle, Lion & Bull of the twelve tribes of Israel when they camped in the wilderness. The other books of the New Testaments such as the book of Peter was written from Peter to addressing to the Jews & the Gnostic Scholars, Books like Acts, Corinthians , Galatians, Ephesians were written by Paul adressing to the Gentiles, the 1st Churches in history. While Revelations were written by John about the prophecies he received regarding the end days. Practically the Old Covenant was started by Abraham, the Law began with Moses, the Finished Work of God started with the Four Canonical Gospels & the New Covenant, the modern Church started with Paul in the Book of Acts upon the 1st Pentecost.

      All these can be found in the books written by Sister Marilyn Hickey where she basically dissected the whole Bible.
