Compare and contrast the primary beliefs held by major religious traditions and the cultures in which these religions evolved.

Discussion 1

INTRODUCTION

Christianity grew from a small sect of Jewish followers to one of the largest (and most powerful) religious traditions in the world. Jesus and his small community did not find widespread acceptance within Judaism, but once it was transmitted to non-Jews (Greeks, Romans, and Africans), it grew quickly into a coherent religious system with a political presence in every region it went.

It is not true that every Christian tradition views what it means to be Christian the same way. In fact, anthropologists have documented that Jesus and many of the “core” tenants of European and American Christianity do not exist in some Christian communities around the world.
