The key to this whole subject should be spiritual,we all should live spiritually and not be divided by a religion that is the point and what Jesus showed us is the key for a good life he walked among all the classes, the down trodden,the drunk,the meek all people, spiritual,nonspiritual, and taught he had no picks, one was no better than the other. The baglady means just as much to Jesus as the Priest,Pastor,Minister etc. No one is above another,there was no religion when Jesus visited these Temples etc. He was checking what they were teaching the people,it is OK together together,to pray or whatever but there is no religion named in the Bible saying this is what jesus practiced or this is the best one to follow,you follow the path and footsteps of jesus and how can you go wrong...Peace

Of course there was Religion,(causing as much upset as it still does now) at the time of Jesus! HE WAS A JEW,AND LOVED HIS FAITH.But was disenchanted at the way the Elders (Pharisees) were conducting affairs in the Temple,and that glorious story,which is my favourite  about Him,where He enters the Temple in a terrible rage,and overturns the tables,saying "You have turned MY Fathers House into a Den of Thieves" shows how He  wasn't the "flavour of the month any more" But wasn't that a wonderful thing to do?
So don't forget,people,He WAS a JEW. He was also a RABBI. Which
means Teacher...Right? And what did He teach?How to be a good living JEW.that's what.NOT Christianity.   That came much later.In my opinion,mores the pity
Her endeth the lesson.Peace to you ALL my Brothers and Sisters!

Does ones action denote ones religion, we have gotten to the point that there was no religion,being Jew does not denote your religion that is your culture.thanks and peace to you.

Jesus was a Jew, raised in a Jewish home, but He shook the staus quo, by introducing the Truth, practicing Judaism the way God intended it to be, without all the legalistic junk enforced by the Pharisees.

Thankyou "Maldridge" As I see it,the beauty of the teaching of Jesus,was so simple,and understandable,more importantly able to be practised ,by ALL RELIGIONS,then and now.Until Constantine saw how the basic gentle faith in Jesus was gaining strength.while the power of Rome was declining.By adding all the rituals,and beliefs that his empire,practised, its power was restored somewhat,and became the Roman Catholic Church,one of the richest establishments on Earth,then and now,and the cause of much bloodshed,and War.Is it any wonder that Most pictures of Jesus are shown with his Bleeding Heart?

That's a tricky worded question, I think! First, Jesus perpetuated (fulfilled) Jewish Law which is obvious based on His teachings. Second, Jesus was not "religious" by definition. Religion basically means a set of tenets based on Deity or a teacher. So, religious would mean a follower of such tenets from Deity or a teacher. Jesus was (is) DEITY! God cannot Himself be religious...at least by man's finite, arbitrary definition.

He did not follow any one religion. Many religions were based on where people lived at the time or what the king or so called high people wanted you to worship. If he was so into his faith would he not want his apostles to believe the same faith. He came from god who as we know it has no set religion

Jesus didn't follow "religion".  He did the will of His Father in Heaven.  He had faith in His Father in Heaven and relied on the power of His Father in Heaven.  This is not "religion".

Jesus was originally raised as a Jew, but, of course, was the person who began Christianity. The original church he began is the Catholic Church, although that name wasn't used officially until later that century. This snippet is from Catholic Answers:

33 A.D.

Roman Catholic Church (moved to Rome by Peter after he fled Jerusalem) was founded by God-made-man, Jesus Christ. He said: "Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it... Feed my lambs; feed My sheep" (Matt. 16:18,19; John 21:15,17). He also said: "He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who gathers not with me scatters" (Matt.12:30).
 
These biblical passages would be considered the beginning of the Catholic Church, since Peter was the first Bishop of Rome, which is another name for the Pope.

This passage is not telling you nor I that Jesus practice or chose that as his religion,jesus visited all as I previously stated he requested that we be holy and that is not requesting to start a faith or religion called holiness,catholic,or any other his basic message was live,love and be holy,which to me means follow his path and make no one or nothing your God except him,accept your sister or brother even though he or she is not what you think they should be he showed us the way,and practiced no religion man came up with these Ideas,using different books,quotes etc. from the Bible. I believe in the entire bible not one quote,one book,one testament Jesus did not chose one over the other,man has done that...Peace

What you are born as has no bearing on your religion,It doesn't say that his parents were of any faith, so we can't say as a child he was this or that,he was 12 years old when his parents realized he was different and had a knowledge that surprised all who followed and listened to him speak. Peace

I am curious as to where Dennis Taylor got his information about Peter being the first Bishop of Rome. There is no Biblical or secular evidence that Peter was ever in Rome. When we look at the Popes of rome we get a mixture bloodthirsty murderers who killed or bribed their way to the Papacy.The early Bishops of Rome could hardly be true sucessor of Christ. Can you in your wildest imagination picture Jesus living such an opulant lfe as the Popes do?

Religion is not what jesus came for. He came as redeemer, he bring us salvation for us who crisscross our life with sins. He said "I come not to bring peace" but rather he said "a son
against his father, a daughter against her mother, son in-law against his father-in  law, and so on. In short he brings division. Our faith and belief divide us into different religion. It is what we believed and what we do that is important.
    The jew refer to abraham as their father. Jesus said, " before abraham is born I am.
Therefore if we asked what religion did jesus follow is the religion of abraham. Or abrahamic
religion. The first religion before Judaism, christianity and islamic. Circumcision is the covenant
of abraham to god and so with moses. Jesus was presented in the temple after 40 days from his birth, the practice of the jew from the time of Abraham to up to the birth of jesus. Jesus came to fulfil the prophecy, so he follows the existing tradition from abraham. Remember this: No baptism, no holy spirit, no holy spirit, no redemption, no, salvation. That is the the mission of coming of jesus. Amen.

If you where fostered to a black family and you where white, would that make you black?...NO! Same applies to Jesus. Just because he was raised by Jews, does not mean he is one. Being a Christian is a "act of Faith" not a "practice of Religion". Jesus stated that "Religion" would split the church. Religion such as denominations, in which there are to many to mention. Church?.. As in a congregation of believers who worship God, not a four cornered building. The Church is in heart... A combined congregation and ministry. To anyone who thinks opposite, maybe you should not take this personal but actually read the Bible. Lets not be ignorant.

Jesus was Jewish born of a faithful Jewish mother and father and practiced Judaism until he instituted what later came to be known by divine providence: Christianity. Christ means Messiah which means anointed to be king. It was prophesied he would replace Judaism and faithful jews were waiting this messiah to be born, so when he was finally born in bethlehem of the family line of King David faithful Jews who studied the Hebrew scriptures were able to recognize him. Good question..years ago I wondered the same thing.
Jesus was an exemplary Jewish person, he read the Hebrew scriptures and quoted them from a very young age (12 yrs old).

It is stated and predicted through-out the bible. Jesus was born a Jew and to be born a Jew your Mother must be Jewish. The lineage of Jesus is from the House of David, King David, slew Goliath. All of Jesus disciples were also Jewish I do believe. Thus is the reason that Jesus was crucified as the Priest and Scribes of the Jewish Temple insisted on the act as they thought of Jesus as a blasphemer and a threat to the Temple itself.

This is the first time that I have ever heard anyone ask this question, but I can understand why, because even in Jesus' day there were many that believed different things.  In fact one of the reasons that Jesus was to be born and die was to set the foundation for the new covenant that Jehovah God wanted to be established.  If we look at the things that Jesus taught in the Bible, it replaced the mosaic law that God instituted by means of Moses.  Jesus was the first of the Christian congregation because his life, his example, and his death are the means that all true Christians should follow and put faith in.  This would not be easy because even Jesus himself said he did not come to give peace but a division.  At Luke 12:51-53 it says:

51 Do YOU imagine I came to give peace on the earth? No, indeed, I tell YOU, but rather division. 52 For from now on there will be five in one house divided, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against [her] mother, mother-in-law against [her] daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against [her] mother-in-law.”  This is because so many would not except and follow Jesus that it would cause a division even it ones own household. So since Jehovah God used His son to establish a new covenant that all people should follow we can see that Jesus did not follow any religion but established true religion.

Jesus followed true Christianity, if you actually believe it to be correct. This is the problem I find with the New Testament.

First, who has higher authority, Jesus or Paul? Obviously Jesus, since he is the son of god. When Jesus was baptized he was baptized under God's name. He also said to follow in his footsteps, and what he does, to also do likewise.

However, Paul states that in order to be a baptized Christian, you must be baptized in Jesus' name. Yet... Jesus was baptized in God's name and according to Jesus Christians are to follow Jesus likewise. This shows me that in a few areas, Paul had no idea what he was talking about.

So, yes, Jesus followed true Christianity be being baptized under God's name.

Jew (adjective) means a Jewish resident (of Judaea).
Jesus was not a Jew. He was not a resident of Judaea.
Jesus was a Nazarene (a city in Galilee), thus the title: Jesus of Nazareth.
Jesus was a Galilean. He was a resident of Galilee.

The bible does not tell of Jesus following a religion, but it also does not tell of him breaking the Jewish faith (though he did commit acts against the temple which can be seen as breaking Jewish law, if not faith) Jesus was born a Jew, from a Jewish mother and so in Jewish law is a Jew. In Catholic (read early proto-Christianity) law/canon he was never confirmed or baptised and so never entered the House of God.

Jesus was a Liberal Jewish Baptist Pentecostal. He fulfilled the Law of the Old Testament, was baptized by John the Baptist, and the Holy Spirit like a dove descended on him. There is no favoritism, all are equal and all are free, within the framework of what Jesus taught and commanded. The Bible does not label Jesus with the name of any Religion. Acts 11:25-26 says that the disciples were first called Christians at Antioch. Thus was coined the term that the followers of what Jesus preached were to be called.
