Christianity

Last week I asked you to write a list of your own ten commandments. Did you manage to follow any? Was it difficult?

Click on the link below and take this virtual tour of St. Georges Cathedral in London. It has been a place of Christian worship for more than 1,000 years, but a cathedral only since the creation of the diocese of Southwark in 1905. Between 1106 and 1538 it was the church of an Augustinian priory, Southwark Priory.

Your task this week is to draw your own birds eye view of a church or cathedral and label all the important parts such as:

pew, vestry, lectern, pulpit, candle, alter etc..

I can draw a birds eye view of a church and label all the important parts.

Why are Christians called Christians?

Christians get their name from Jesus Christ who is God's son.

 

What do Christians believe?

Christians believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and that:

  • God sent his Son to earth to save humanity from the consequences of its sins
  • Jesus was fully human, and experienced this world in the same way as other human beings of his time
  • Jesus was tortured and gave his life on the Cross (At the Crucifixion)
  • Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his Crucifixion (the Resurrection)

Christians believe that Jesus was the Messiah promised in the Old Testament

Christians believe that there is only one God, but that this one God consists of 3 "persons"

    • God the Father
    • God the Son
    • The Holy Spirit

Christians believe that God made the world.

The Christian place of worship is called a Church. They are often built in the shape of a cross with the altar facing east towards the rising sun.

The Christian spiritual leaders are called priests or ministers. (vicars).

Christian worship involves praising God in music, speech, readings from scripture, prayers of various sorts, a sermon and various holy ceremonies.
