yeah but chistianity has many different things than judaism. for example the heaven and hell thung. not in judaism. the confession thing, also not in judaism. also shabbat, not in christanity. the resting thing is not there. so there are many many many different aspects. and for what demon said or whoever said about blacks suffering mroe than jews, this isn't a f***ing contest for what race suffered the most and just bringing that up to spite me is not very nice. i know your mad that i called you a bastard one time, butpm me again if your really upset.

The main point laziebone is that Christianity branched from Judaism. Despite the numerous differences, one was born from the other. The two are based on a singular, masculine spiritual figure that created the universe. Historically, they were the same people until Jesus came around during the Roman Empire. When Jesus came about, one group decided "hey, I think that guy was the Messiah," and the other said, "Eh, not really." Thus the two split.
Same thing with Catholicism. One group said (mainly Martin Luther), "Hey, there's too many pictures, and fancy people/stuff in the church." The other said, "Nah, we like things just the way they are." And thus you have Catholicism vs. Protestantism.
No, the base of christianity is the new testament, only some parts of the jewish faith is actually part of the christian faith. thats not enough to consider chritianity a branch of judhism. Is buddahism consider a branch of hinduism, no.
Christianity originally developed as a part of Judaism. Jesus was a Jew. He lived from about 3 BC to 30 AD. He lived and taught in Palestine, primarily (although not exclusively) among fellow Jews. Christianity separated from the main body of Judaism for two major reasons:
1. Christianity came to regard Jesus as in some sense God's presence in human form. This was unacceptable to most Jews. 2. Judaism is defined by a covenant made between God and the Jewish people. Part of this covenant is the Law, a set of religious and ethical rules and principles. Most Christians came to regard both this covenant and Law as in some sense superseded by Jesus' teaching and the community that he established. On the night he died, Jesus talked about establishing a "new covenant" based on his death and resurrection.
