Christianity was founded in the country of Palestine. It was founded by the Jewish carpenter, Jesus of Nazareth, who soon later became known as Jesus Christ. Jesus taught that you must know, love, and serve God. Jesus had twelve Apostles: Peter, Andrew, James the Greater, James the Lesser, John, Phillip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, Thaddeus, Simon, and Judas Iscariot.
Because of his constant blessings and more people coming to support him, the Roman empire thought that he would lead an uprising against them. Jesus had one last supper with his followers before Judas betrayed him. He was crucified by the Roman government on 30 A.D. After he died his body was locked in a tomb, but rose three days later on Sunday. The Christian community believes that the death and resurrection of Jesus was the cornerstone to their religion. After his death the people made the religion of Christianity, so named after Jesus Christ.
Christianity in the Roman Empire
After the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Christian community continued to
grow. They still had to face many persecutions, but people still converted to the new faith for new hope and redemption. In 311 A.D, Christianity was finally legalised in the Roman Empire by Galeruiys, who had previously been one of the leading figures in the persecutions of the Christian community. By 391 A.D, Christianity was the most popular religion in the Roman Empire. Constantine I was the first emperor to embrace this new religion.

Many Christians were martyred. This means that they died because of their religion.
