The Birth of Christianity recounts the invention of Christianity within Judaism by piecing together, in a timescale from AD 30-150, the disputes and debates that arose among its early protagonists and the first generations in Jerusalem, Antioch, Corinth, Alexandria and Rome, always with the aim of ensuring the salvation of the nation of Israel.
An essential period in western history.
When Jesus died around AD 30, crucified as "King of the Jews" by the Romans in Jerusalem, who could have predicted that a new religion would take root within the next century?
