Description of Activity

The time line is updated to add Christianity.

Ask participants if they remember the years Jesus lived. If they do not remember, offer that best estimates are that Jesus was crucified in 30 CE and the Christian Church was by tradition created on Pentecost, after Jesus' resurrection. (Place marker on timeline.) Ask if participants remember in what part of the world Christianity was birthed. Point out Israel on the map. Ask if participants remember how many Christians there are in the world. (Over 2 billion.) So where is Christianity practiced now? Everywhere! (Indicate entire map.)
