Christianity is the predominant religion in Europe, the Americas and many parts of the world. It is founded on the person and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, called 'the Christ', who was crucified in the fourth decade of the current era; and the belief that he, being a direct incarnation of God, or 'the Son of God', rose from the dead after his brutal execution. His teachings have been interpreted by many scholars and preachers. As a result, there are many different Christian churches or sects. For an outline of, and links to more direct articles on, some of these go to Principal Christian Denominations.
