Christianity is rooted in Judaism and Jesus was a Jew. Jesus, using his interpretation of the Golden Rule, took the 10 Commandments of his Jewish faith and elaborated on them in his teachings such as the Sermon on the Mount. In later years, however, the Church focused on faith as seen in its creeds.
This legacy of Christianity raises the question: is Christianity a religion of works or faith? Within the broader context of world religions that we have studied so far, is religion about works or beliefs? Can it be both? If so, should it favor one more than the other?
