I am a practicing catholic, but i have to admit that i didnt really pay attention in sunday school, so i would like to clear up a few things. Firsty what are all the books that are in the christian religon, and can someone please give me a basic timeline on the events after the death of christ and before. I used to think that christianity started with the birth of jesus but im not so sure now. Also how is it that Judaism has a lot of the beliefs that are held in christianity but dont have jesus in it?

The true Christian believes only in the Bible. Because it is the Words of God. Its is being called the Holy Bible, cause the the author is God. It is the sole books that man must received. The other books written by man, like passion, rosary, is not the books that leads you to eternal life.

There is book called My Catholic Faith. Answers the fundamental questions about the religion. Ask in your local bookstore. The Summa Theologica explains in-depth the queries about the faith. But that is difficult to read and understand. Approach your parish priest for guidance. Sometimes they conduct lessons like Bible Study.

new testament is the section associated with christians or new jews. and yes it actually started before the new testament . A prophet told about a saviour to come. The first promise ..first covenant was a saviour. Then the new testament starts off with the birth of the saviour and then his life and struggle, and the first covenant fulfilled. It actually is a continuation of the old jewish religion. they are not seperate. Same God. Same beliefs. Just some chose not to accept Jesus as the saviour they were looking for and continue with the old ways.
