defined by any beginning dates, but it does still exist in the world today.
The total amount of followers in this religion is around 1.7 billion people.

to be like Jesus and commit as little sin as possible. When Jesus was 32

divided up into 66 separate books in all. The most famous books are the
Gospels, which are the first four books in the New Testament: Matthew, Mark,
