The history of the early Christian church begins with it considered to be a sect of the Jews. Judaism, at the time of Jesus Christ, was a collection of several competing religious powers. After the ascension of Jesus, and the start of the church on Pentecost, the apostles.

After the death of Stephen, persecution against early Christians escalated. Saul went from house to house, dragging out men and women to have them jailed. Some were beaten. Many were put to death. Saul tried to force them to blaspheme the name of Jesus (Acts ). King Herod arrested some early Christians because it pleased the Jews.
