Christianity is a religion based upon the teachings of the Holy Bible, which consists of the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the the New Testament. It developed from Judaism in modern-day Palestine-Israel, and has approximately 2.1 billion adherents worldwide. [1] Its main divisions are Eastern Orthodox – which emerged from the Byzantine Empire, Roman Catholic – which emerged from the Western Roman Empire, Protestant – which emerged from the Protestant Reformation in Europe, and Oriental. Some religions, such as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which have introduced additional Scripture to the commonly-accepted canon, consider themselves Christian but are not always regarded as such by outsiders.
