Christianity from Judaism to Constantine Crash Course World History 11
Hi there my name's John Green; this is Crash CourseWorld History and today we're going to talk about Jesus. So this is a Roman coin from around the timeJesus was born in the Roman Empire, and it calls Augustus, the emperor, the son of God.So let's just state at the outset that in 4 BCE, being the son of God, or at least beingthe son of a god was not such an unusual thing. But a poor Jew being the son of God â€” thatwas news. theme music Any understanding of Christianity has to startwith Judaism, because Jesus was born a Jew, and he grew up in the Jewish tradition. Hewas one of many teachers spreading his ideas
in the Roman province of Judea at the time,and he was part of a messianic tradition that helps us understand why he was thought ofnot only teacher but something much, much more. Let's go straight to the Thought Bubbletoday. The people who would become the Jews, werejust one of many tribal peoples eking out an existence in that notvery fertile crescentworld of Mesopotamia after the agricultural revolution. The Hebrews initially worshiped many gods,making sacrifices to them in order to bring good weather and good fortune. But they eventuallydeveloped a religion centered around an idea that would become key to the other great westernreligions.
This was monotheism, the idea that there isonly one true god (or at least that if there are other gods around, they are total lameoids).The Hebrews developed a second concept that is key to their religion as well: the ideaof the covenant, a deal with God. The main man in this, the big macher was Abraham.Not to make this too much of a scripture lesson, but it's kind of hard to understand theJews without understanding Abraham, or Abram as he was known before he had his big conversationwith God. Recorded in Genesis 17: quot;When Abram was ninety years and nine, the LORD appearedto Abram, and said unto him, 'I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.'quot; And I'm a make a covenant with you and
a bunch of cool things will happen like you'regonna have kids and your descendants will number the stars and you can have all theland of Canaan forever, it's gonna be awesome. I'm paraphrasing by the way, Thought Bubble. So God promised that Abram would have kidswith his wife even though the dude was already like 99, but there was a catch: quot;This is mycovenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; every manchild among you shall be circumcised.quot; Keep it PG13, Thought Bubble. Now that is asking a lot from a guy, especiallya 99yearold geezer like Abram living in
a time before general anesthesia. But thosewere the terms of the deal, and in exchange God had chosen Abraham and his descendantsto be a great nation. From this we get the expression that the Jews are the Chosen people. Thanks for keeping it clean, Thought Bubble. So, some important things about this god: One, singularity. He â€” and I'm using themasculine pronoun because that's what Hebrew prayers use â€” does not want you to put anygods before Him. He is also transcendent, having always existedand he is deeply personal â€“ he chats with
prophets, sends locusts, etc. But he doesn'ttake corporeal form like the Greek and Roman Gods do. He is also involved in history, like he willdestroy cities, and bring floods, and determine the outcome of wars, and possibly footballgames. Stan, no! FOOTBALL games! Probably most important to us today, and certainlymost important to Jesus, this god demands moral righteousness and social justice. So,this is the god of the Hebrews, Yahweh, and despite many ups and downs, the Jewish peoplehave stuck with him for according to the Hebrew calendar, at least over 5700 years. And He has stuck by them too, despite theJews being, on occasion, something of a disappointment

I want to explain
some very important things to everyone whobelieves in the God of the bible and upholds His laws and His word.
