Christianity has its roots in Judaism. Christians believe in Jesus, a carpenter who began to travel and teach new ideas about Judaism around 30 CE. He believed that the old laws of Judaism should be replaced by a simple system based on love and kindness.
Jesus performed miracles and after people saw the results, they became followers. He laid his hands on people and could heal them. Jesus used parables (stories that teach lessons) to link his teachings to people’s everyday lives. Jesus soon gained a large following.
