Christianity
70 CE: Central Temple in Jerusalem is destroyed for the second and final time
area is single most contested area between three Abrahamic faiths 2nd or 3rd most holy
place in Islam
Wailing wall: number one pilgrimage location for Jews (last standing wall of the
Temple before it was destroyed in 70 CE)
This place is connects Judaism and Islam and is therefore contested by
members of the two religions
Judaism was a temple religion after Temple was destroyed, Jews lost central
focus of religion and lost governance to Romans
Gospel of Paul first written around 48-60 CE Jesus is said to have been crucified
and rose around 31 CE (born in 0 CE) Jesus was very young when He died and rose
Major shift in Christian calendar from Julian to Gregorian led to change in dating
system this is why Eastern Orthodox Christmas is after Dec. 25 (they mark holy days
on Julian calendar)
Gospel of Mark also believed to have been written around 70 CE
Temple destroyed because Judaism was considered treason against Roman
state at the time Jews were considered a threat to the state
80-100 CE was when Gospels of Matthew, Luke, and John were written
Matthew, Luke, John, and Paul were considered 1st generation Christians but
their teaching were originally oral, later written down (these Gospels are eye-witness
accounts)

Apostles spread out and told stories of what they saw, others would tell more

people that they spoke to an Apostle who knew Jesus, eventually the oral stories were
written down (this is why early texts don’t always agree)
Stories were told in a very small community of people because Christianity was
punishable by death (this is why early saints were also martyrs)
313 CE: Emperor Constantine permits Christianity
380 CE: Emperor Theodosius declares Christianity the official religion of the
entire Roman Empire this is why Christianity spread so quickly and so effectively
(religion of nobility and classes of power in North Africa, Britain, Germany, most of
Europe; everywhere the Romans went Christianity went with them)
Originally 5 archbishops (patriarchs) in Christianity (including Antioch, Greece,
Rome) Pope of Rome said that he was not just the leader of the Catholics in Rome but
of all Christians Roman Pope is head of the Church and Christianity, has a direct line to
St. Peter (the first leader of the Church)
Catholic: universal, common (Roman Catholic means mainstream faith based
out of Rome)
6th century CE: this is when Roman Catholicism split from Byzantine Church
Roman Catholics cross themselves differently from other Christians
Other Christians don’t view Bishop of Rome as head of the Church
Monastic orders (men and later women lead lives exclusively focused on praising
God) later rise (monasticism) believe that what they are doing benefits the entire
world, not just themselves
Nuns live in convents, not nunneries (nunneries are brothels)
Late 600s is when Christianity and Islam make contact (both are missionizing
religions)
Judaism was originally a missionizing religion, but is not anymore (only now try to
bring current Jews back to an orthodox practice of the faith)
The fall of the Second Temple in 70 CE made it difficult to become a Jew
Judaism was missionizing during the time of Jesus
Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews view Maccabees as heroes for overthrowing
oppressors (they are held in high regard to the Jews)
Maccabees were not successful
Jesus was another person claiming to be the Messiah to the Jews, so they did
not accept Him even after His Death and Resurrection this is why the Apostles
missionized Gentiles, not Jews after the Ascension
