    Christianity, major religion stemming from the life, teachings, and death of Jesus of Nazareth in the 1st century CE. It has become the largest of the world’s religions and, geographically, the most widely diffused. Learn about the history of Christianity, its doctrines, and the major Christian traditions.   While in the Christian Bible, Satan is the main antagonist and perceived as evil and destructive, in Greek accounts, Hades, who reigns the underworld is not evil, simply a protector of the dead. He did show a selfish streak when he demanded that the woman he loved, Persephone spend a portion of each year with him.

      Any resemblance between the triune God of Christianity and the 10 sefirot of the God of Kabbalah almost certainly derives from this influence rather than from the workings of Christianity . Although its origins may be traced to the remotest eras, Greek religion in its developed form lasted more than a thousand years, from the time of Homer (probably 9th or 8th century bce) to the reign of the emperor Julian (4th century ce).During that period its influence spread as far west as Spain, east to the Indus River, and throughout the Mediterranean world.
