Christian CrossDeath and Resurrection of JesusChristianity:  Major Religions of the World

Christians consider the resurrection of Jesus to be the cornerstone of their faith (see 1 Corinthians 15) and the most important event in human history.

Among Christian beliefs, the death and resurrection of Jesus are two core events on which much of Christian doctrine and theology is based. According to the New Testament Jesus was crucified, died a physical death, buried within a tomb, and rose from the dead three days later. The New Testament mentions several resurrection appearances of Jesus on different occasions to his twelve apostles and disciples, including "more than five hundred brethren at once," before Jesus' Ascension to heaven.

Jesus' death and resurrection are commemorated by Christians in all worship services, with special emphasis during Holy Week which includes Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

The death and resurrection of Jesus are usually considered the most important events in Christian Theology, partly because they demonstrate that Jesus has power over life and death and therefore has the authority and power to give people eternal life.

Christian churches accept and teach the New Testament account of the resurrection of Jesus with very few exceptions. Some modern scholars use the belief of Jesus' followers in the resurrection as a point of departure for establishing the continuity of the historical Jesus and the proclamation of the early church.

Some liberal Christians do not accept a literal bodily resurrection, seeing the story as richly symbolic and spiritually nourishing myth. Arguments over death and resurrection claims occur at many religious debates and interfaith dialogues. Paul the Apostle, an early Christian convert and missionary, wrote, "If Christ was not raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your trust in God is useless."

It is a myth that the Major Religions are basically the same.

It just isn't true. They don't have a different path up the same mountain -- they are not even on the same mountain!

Judaism says there is a God, and the way to him is to fulfil God's will which is found most clearly in The 10 Commandments.

Islam says there is a God, but the way to him is that we must obey Muhammad, and therefore, the discipline of the Koran's teachings.

Hinduism says there is a God, but we have to go through reincarnation to get to him, from sub-human form to human form to improve the soul.

Christianity says there is a God, Jesus died on the cross for our sins (he removed that burden from each of us), and he is the way to God.

Buddhism says there is no God.

The other isms have their own twist.

Which is correct?

The book is succinct, and gets to the core issues -- the key questions. You do not have to read the entire library to understand the differences among the religions.

Further, this book makes it simple: it asks the same questions of each religion as to its beliefs and teachings.

What does each religion teach as to a Creator?  The origin of the universe, our planet Earth?  The origin of humankind?  The origin of evil and suffering?  A messiah?  About reconciling with God?  Each religion's role, what is their purpose?
