Christianity and Islam are the largest religions in the world and share a historical and traditional connection, with some major theological differences. The two faiths share a common place of origin in the Middle East , and consider themselves to be monotheistic .

Christianity developed out of Second Temple Judaism in the 1st century CE. It is founded on the life, teachings, death , and resurrection of Jesus Christ , and those who follow him are called Christians . [1]

Islam is a monotheistic religion that developed in the 7th century CE. Islam, which literally means "surrender" or "submission" (to God), was founded on the teachings of Muhammad as an expression of surrender to the will of Allah . [2]

With over 2 billion adherents worldwide, Christianity is the largest religion in the world. It has dominated western culture for centuries and remains the majority religion of Europe and the Americas.

Christian beliefs center on the life of Jesus of Nazareth , a teacher and healer who lived in first century Palestine. The primary source of information about the life of Jesus are the Gospels, which were written sometime between 20 and 100 years after his death and became the first four books of the New Testament. The Gospels describe a three-year teaching and healing ministry during which Jesus attracted 12 close disciples and other followers who believed him to be the Messiah ( Christos ).

Jesus' teachings focused on the themes of the kingdom of God, love of God and love of neighbor. Along with some of his teachings, his growing popularity with the masses was seen as dangerous by Jewish religious leaders and the Roman government, leading to his execution by crucifixion. Christians believe Jesus rose from the dead three days later, and in so doing made it possible for those who believe to be forgiven of sin and attain eternal life. Much of Christian belief and practice centers on the resurrection of Christ.

Christianity grew out of Judaism [13] [14] [15] and began as a Second Temple Judaic sect in the mid-1st century. [16] [17] Originating in the Roman province of Judea , it quickly spread to Europe, Syria, Mesopotamia , Anatolia , Transcaucasia , Egypt, Ethiopia and the Indian subcontinent , and by the end of the 4th century had become the official state church of the Roman Empire . [18] [19] [20] Following the Age of Discovery , Christianity spread to the Americas, Oceania, sub-Saharan Africa and the rest of the world through missionary work and colonization . [21] [22] [23]

Throughout its history , Christianity has weathered schisms and theological disputes that have resulted in many distinct churches and denominations . Worldwide, the three largest branches of Christianity are the Catholic Church , the Eastern Orthodox Church and the various denominations of Protestantism . The Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches broke communion with each other in the East–West Schism of 1054. Protestantism came into existence in the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century, splitting from the Catholic Church. [25]

There are many important differences of interpretation and opinion of the Bible and sacred tradition on which Christianity is based. [26] Because of these irreconcilable differences in theology and a lack of consensus on the core tenets of Christianity, Catholics , Protestants and Orthodox often deny that members of certain other branches are Christians. [27]

NOTE: There are many countries where very high percentages (95 to nearly 100%)
of the population are Christians. There are so many, and they represent such a
wide range of difficult-to-compare compositions in terms of activity, membership
in European state churches, affiliation, etc., that it would be difficult to
create a meaningful top 10 list of countries with the highest percentages of
Christians. Please refer to the full

Adherents.com for such information.

NOTE:
Division into denominational families offers a more detailed look at the
composition of Christianity as a whole, but can be misleading. Among Protestants
today, most significant divisions with regard to culture, practice and doctrine
are not between denominational families, but between Liberal and
Conservative Protestants.

The variety
of terms applied to different divisions and movements among conservative
American Protestants can be confusing. Some of the most important and widely
used are: born again Christians, Evangelicals, Pentecostals, Charismatics and
Fundamentalists. These terms frequently overlap or are defined differently by
different writers.
