The Christian Church has over 300 different branches and some 20,000 different denominations and sects. Some of these sects are of course claimed, by other sects, not to be Christians at all! The essential requirement would seem to be some basis of belief in the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, and counting him as the "Christ" or "Annointed One" or "Messiah", however this is interpreted.

Links to Commentaries on the Bible

The Christian Bible exists in numerous different editions, and is a compilation of many smaller books, translated from the original Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek. The component books include history, propaganda, poetry, law, prophecy, morality, and fiction, and were written over hundreds of years, from Y-600 to Y200. Although described as "the word of God" these books were of course written by human beings. The version of the bible used by Catholic and Orthodox Churches include extra books, known as the Apocrypha. Among the early Christian writings there are other gospels (e.g. Thomas' Gospel) which often disagree with each other and with the four that made it to the accepted New Testament after the Council of Nicea in 382 and the Council of Trent in 1545-47.
