How old is Christianity?

Depends on what you mean by the age. the actual practice came from Judaism. But Jesus had followers that changed Judaism and made it a new religion. So around 2011 years.Paul (also known as Saul) started Christianity as we know it. He claims he was converted on the road to Damascus, probably around 50AD. This is about 15 years after Christians believe Jesus died.The Gospels were written later, and probably based on Paul's teachings. So Christianity can be dated back to around 50AD, when Paul started preaching and writing. People were already practising Christianity at the time of Paul's conversion, but they left no written records that I know of.Answer 2 Christianity as Jesus taught it was Old Testament. So to be accurate Jesus taught Judaism, but corrected those (Jews) who tried to interject what they thought or said that God wanted or expected others to believe or practice. Jesus says in Matthew 5:17 that the Old Testament is "the Law" God's Law or Torah, and that it would never become obsolete. So to accurately date the Christian religion one must include its core, Judaism. Judaism started around 2000BC. So that would make Christianity around 4000 years old. Note: Many people would regard Answer 2 as incorrect. While Jesus did come to fulfil the Jewish (Old Testament) scripture, and Christians look at this to prove the legitimacy of Christ, Christianity begins with the preaching of Jesus (when he was aged about 30) and comes into being with his public resurrection from the dead. Christ's death and resurrection are the start of Christianity - think about it - if those events did indeed happen they are the most important human event ever.

How long is 1500 meters in time?

Length and time are different fundamental dimensions, and neither of them can be converted into the other one. If they could be converted back and forth, then you could easily tell someone how many meters old you are, or how many minutes high your house is.

All about the apostle paul?

Paul is one of the more significant writers of the Bible. Paul's old name was Saul before he was converted. This is irony that he is so beloved because he persecuted followers of Jesus. Paul had not actually known Jesus and he was converted on the road to Damascus. Paul wrote at least seven books of the Bible. When Paul caused a disruption in Jerusalem, he was arrested and put under 2 years of house arrest then put to death.

How old was Paul when he stop hating Jesus?

The Bible does give paul's age, but as he was believed to initially be in the Sanhedrin which had a minimum age of 30, if you added a couple of years for the explosive growth of the early church after Pentecost, then a couple more for his persecution and witchunting of Christians up to the time of his conversion on the road to Damascus, that would make Paul about 35.
