Introduction to Christianity

Christianity is a Semitic religion, which claims to have nearly 1.2 billion adherents all over the world. Christianity owes its name to Jesus Christ (peace be on him). The Holy Bible is the sacred scripture of the Christians:

a)  The Bible is divided into two parts, the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament is the Holy Scripture of the Jews and contains records of all the prophets of the Jews that came before Jesus (pbuh).

The New Testament contains records of the life of Jesus (pbuh).
b)   The complete Bible, i.e. the Old Testament and the New Testament put together, contains 73 books. However, the Protestant Bible i.e. the King James Version,  contains  only  66  books as  they  consider  7 

books of the Old Testament to be apocrypha, i.e. of doubtful authority.

Therefore the Old Testament of the Catholics, contains 46 books and that of the Protestants, 39 books. However the New Testament of both these sects contains 27 books.


  1. I dont know how the details of testament old and new are going to help the followers or wanting to be followers of Islam .Is not Quran the last and ultimate book of Allah,so why not focus and restrict ourselves to the teachings of Quran.I dont think comparisons are necessary to make Da wah more effective.Allah only can give Hidayah

    Everyone should be enlightened to Christianity, Islamic, Jewish, Buddhist and all religions in this world call earth.
    We are all one human race with differences in religious views.
    There is nothing wrong with knowing about other religions.
    Maybe you should open your heart to all people and all religions on the earth.
    Knowledge is key to finding peace in this tormented time.
    Just try and get along with everyone, not just followers of Islam
    Thank you
