Christians are the believers of Messiah “Jesus Christ”, Those Jews who believe that “Messiah was crucified and defeated death” are called Christians. Jesus Christ born among Jews, from the descendants of Jacob, son of Isaac, Son of Abraham. The twelve disciples and early Christians all were Jews, who preached the gospel of Torah to the Greeks, Romans and all over the world. People from all different nations, tribes and cultures whoever received salvation are called Christians.
First Arch Bishop:
Shim’on bar Yona also known as Simon Peter, according to the New Testament, was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ, leaders of the early Christian Great Church. Peter’s father’s name was John (Jonah or Jona) and he was from the village of Bethsaida in the province of Galilee or Gaulanitis. His brother Andrew was also an apostle. Peter confessed Jesus as the Messiah. Jesus promised Peter in Matthew 16:18-19 “I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Peter as a major saint and as the founder of the Church of Antioch and the Roman Church, also is considered the first Arch Bishop of Rome. Peter was crucified in Rome under the rule of Emperor Nero. It is traditionally held that he was crucified upside down at his own request, since he saw himself unworthy to be crucified in the same way as Jesus.
“If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.”
Read The Full Sermon of Apostle Peter, Acts 2:16-47 where 3000 men accepted Jesus Christ as a savior and Messiah at One time.
The Love and Sharing for Humanity (Philanthropy):
“Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.” Mark 10:21
“And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.” (Acts 2:44-47)
Early Christians and Church in Jerusalem:
The first Church was started from Jerusalem and then it spread to the whole world. In the Book of Acts we read how the disciples were praying “Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day’s journey. And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. (Acts 1:12-14)
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. (Acts 2:1-11)
“And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.” (Acts 11:26)
Who are The Romans and Greeks:
The descendants of Esau would eventually became the Romans, and to a larger extent, all Europeans. The religion of Ancient Greece and romans was classified as polytheistic, which means that they believed in multiple deities like Arabs, Egyptians and Syrians. Esau had a relationship with his cousin daughter of Ishmael and Ishmael was also born by a Egyptian and was married to a Egyptian. Esau was also known as Edom, (Genesis 32:3) the Hebrew word Edom means “red”, and is derived from the name of its founder, Esau, the elder son of the Hebrew patriarch Isaac, because he was born “red all over”. As a young adult, he sold his birthright to his brother Jacob for “red pottage”. (Genesis 36:8)
The progenitor of the Edomites who were established to the south of the Israelites modern Jordan. They were an enemy nation of Israel according to 2-Chronicles 20. The minor prophets, such as Obadiah, claim (Obadiah 1) that the Edomites participated in the destruction of the First Temple by Nebuchadnezzar in 587 BC. (Psalm 137:7) The prophecy of Obadiah insists on the literal “violence done” by Esau “unto your brother Jacob” when the Edomites “entered the gate of my people…, looted his goods…, stood at the parting of the ways to cut off the fugitive,… delivered up his survivors on his day of distress” (Obadiah 1:13–14)
Alexander the Great (Sikandar-e-Azam) is mentioned in the historical book of Maccabees in the Roman Catholic Bible. He defeated other polytheistic nations. He spent most of his ruling years on an unprecedented military campaign through Asia and northeast Africa, Persian empire and Egypt. He created one of the largest empires of the ancient world by the age of thirty, stretching from Greece to northwestern India. That all took place before the birth of Messiah of the Jews. Messiah of The Jews “Jesus Christ” is prophesied as a “Prince of Peace“, “King of Kings” and “Lord of Lords”. Before the birth of Messiah, All the biggest polytheistic Empires, Egypt, Babylonian, Syrian, Persian, Greeks and Roman empires were against the small Kingdom of Israel. When The Messiah was born, King Herod the roman ruler had fear of him and he ordered to kill the children but Messiah was saved and brought to Egypt and then again back to Israel. The Messiah showed miracles, healed thousands of people, raised the dead, and in His meekness he defeated death and arose again on third day according Prophecies. His 12 disciples turned into 70, and then 120 and then each of them changed thousands of lives and thus they kept sharing the Truth and the love of the Messiah with the world and Today after 2000 years, The world’s largest population of 2.8 billion are the followers of Jesus Christ. The Kingdom of Heaven was brought on earth by the Prince of Peace, Today these Christians are working to establish peace into the whole world and changing nations and many are waiting for the second coming of The Messiah – which means peace will be established all over the world.
Kings of different nations gave different mandates and every nation and Kingdom fought against each other. The King of kings changed the whole world with His mandate of love, care and compassion.
You can simply say that from the generation of Adam, Israel only had fear of God and worshiped God YHWH. Other nations started to worship other false gods. We belong to one human family as children of Adam, who were far from The God of Israel (Jacob), Isaac and Abraham and now believing Him through His Messiah (Holy Word) who came into the world in the form of a human body and gave salvation to the mankind and now He is coming again for the day of Judgement.
Hebrews 12:15–16 depicts Esau as unspiritual for thoughtlessly throwing away his birthright. Romans 9:13 states “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated,” based upon Malachi 1:2-3 although this passage goes on to depict the nations of Israel (Jacob) and Edom (Esau). He is considered to be a rebellious son who kept a double life until he was 15, when he sold his birthright to Jacob. Many of us are being rebellious to God and stand against the Kingdom of Israel. They have greed of power, throne and money. This is the reason all rebellious and polytheist nations started new religions and are spreading lies against the Torah because Satan is using these humans and he wants them to go with him into the fire of hell. Satan word “religion” is about war, death, killing and lies. No one can have a hope for life, after having greed or after following the lies of religion. You only can have life, If you follow the “Messiah” (The True Word of God), His word is Love, His word is Peace, His word is Life.

In the time of Moses, Ancient Jews ate heavenly food, and Jesus Christ said “Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world. Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of Him who sent me. And this is the will of Him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” (John 6:32-40)”
