First of all, Catholics are a denomination of the Christian religion, thus they are not their own "religion." Jesus is extremely significant to the Christian religion. Christians believe God promised the early Jews to send His son to save man from sin. The early Jews had to sacrifice animals to cleanse them of their sins, but Jesus was to be the ultimate sacrifice, and through Him everyone could be saved and everyone could be reinstated to be within a "state of grace" with God, which was lost with the first sin committed by Eve (when she disobeyed God's word and ate the forbiddeden Fruit.

Jesus is the base of catechism, though no one knows if he meant to make a whole new religion, or just improve his own.


Jesus sent by the Father started the Catholic Church. The Father sent the Son to make it possible for us to obtain eternal life with him.
