Yes - the Holy Bible. This is split into two sections - the Old Testament (old promise of God/Old Covenant or agreement) which is the story of God's revelation since the earliest times. This is still the Bible that the Jewish religion uses today, and would have been the Bible known to Jesus. The se…cond section is the New Testament (the story of God's New covenant with mankind) which consists of four accounts of the life of Jesus by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, an account of the early Chuch (Acts) several letters by the Apostle Paul to various churches and individuals, various letters by other writers, and the Revelation of John which deals with the end of the world and the final judgment and salvation.

There is no set sacred building of Christianity. Most people wouldanswer this question with the answer "the Church". But the churchis simply a building that the people gather at for worship. I wouldsay a more correct answer would be the human that has Christ Jesusliving in their heart, that is the t…emple of the Lord. The humanthat contains the Holy Spirit inside of them is the "building" thatrepresents the holy God that Christians serve. ( Full Answer )
The Holy Bible, II Timothy 3:16-17, "All Scripture is given byinspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man ofGod may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." The teachings which causepeople to behav…e are the 10 Commandments given to the Jews. Becauseof various religous or denominational or secular beliefs the first4 commandments may be kept or may not be kept at all, or changed,or ignored. Because the first 4 aretheocratic, obviously, if you don't believe in God you won't wantto obey the first 4. Exodus 20 1 st Commandment:- 3 " You shallhave no other gods before Me. 2 nd Commandment:- 4 " You shall notmake for yourself a carved image --- any likeness ofanything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under theearth; 5 you shall notbow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathersupon the children to the third and fourth generations ofthose who hate Me, 6 but showingmercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep Mycommandments. 3 rd Commandment:- 7 " You shall nottake the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will nothold him guiltless who takes His name in vain. 4 th Commandment:- 8 " Remember theSabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days youshall labor and do all your work, 10 but theseventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. Init you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter,nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle,nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, thesea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day.Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. Note All cultures have a 7-dayweek, usually with one day more-special than the others. For theJews and some Christian groups this special day is the SaturdaySabbath, for Christianity as a whole it is Sunday instead, for someChristian groups it is both Saturday Sabbath and Sunday, while for Moslems it isFriday. However, the last 6 Commandments are followedin all cultures to some degree or another. Honor and respectyour parents :- 5 th Commandment:- 12 " Honor your father and your mother, that your daysmay be long upon the land which the LORD your God is givingyou. Note Although some cultures maynow give honour to their parents today more in the breech than theobservance, (when historically they used to), in other culturestoday it is a sign of desrespect both to them and to the family ,and woe betide you if you break it. Eg honour killings Laws againstmurder:- 6 th Commandment:- 13 " You shall not murder . (This is a codified crime inall cultures.) Laws againstadultery:- 7 th Commandment:- 14 " You shall not commit adultery . (This may be unenforceable,but it is a codified crime in all cultures.) Laws againststealing:- 8 th Commandment:- 15 " You shall not steal . (This is a codified crime inall cultures) Laws against lyingin court: - 9 th Commandment:- 16 " You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. (This is a codified crime inmost cultures) Want something thatbelongs to others. 10 th Commandment:- 17 " You shallnot covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet yourneighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, norhis ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is yourneighbor's." This commandment cannot becodified or enforced, but the breaking of it will be seen and canbe enforced. ( Full Answer )

Christianity doesn't really have sacred places. The concept of a sacred place is foreign to Christianity. However, Christianity does have places that are held in special regard but only because of the events that happened there in the past, not because of anything unique about that place. These plac…es include but are not limited to: Jerusalem, Rome, Mount Sinai, Mount Ararat, Galilee, Constantinople, and Antioch. ( Full Answer )
The Holy Bible has many sacred stories which depends upon the individual to list. The Gospel stories of Christ's sayings and doings, the Creation account, Noah, Abraham and the Patriarchs to mention a few.
Apart from the Old Testament, the sacred texts of Christianity are traditionally the gospels, epistles, Acts of the Apostles and the Book of Revelation , that together form the New Testament. The Gospels were written in Greek by anonymous authors, but were later attributed by second-century Churc…h Fathers, to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. However, it is considered unlikely that Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were the real authors. Scholars say that the Gospel According to St. Mark was written around 70 CE. Matthew was the next New Testament Gospel, probably written in the 80s CE, and used Mark as its main source for information about the life of Jesus. Luke is believed to have been written in the 90s of the first century, or early in the second century CE, and also used Mark as its main source of information about the life of Jesus. John was the last of the New Testament gospels and appears to have used both Luke and Mark as sources. Thirteen epistles have been attributed to Paul and, of these, at least seven are widely considered to be genuine: Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians , Philemon, Galatians, Philippians and 1 Thessalonians. That is to say, these were really written by Paul himself. The remainder were written in his name by his disciples or other Christians. The epistles of James, John, Jude and Peter are generally considered to be pseudographical. That is, they were written in the names of the apostles by anonymous authors. Some of the material may be pre-Christian. Hebrews is not really a letter, in the style of Paul's epistles. Its author is unknown, but it may have originally have been a sermon. Revelation was clearly not written by the same author as John's Gospel and was probably developed over a long period by more than one author. ( Full Answer )

Most Protestant Christians accept only one sacred text, the Bible,which is made up of two parts: the Old Testament, which includeshistorical books (that start with creation and describe up to theBabylonian captivity), poetry, wise proverbs, and prophecy, amongother things; and the New Testament, whi…ch describes the birth,life, and death of Jesus of Nazareth, who claimed to be theMessiah, as well as the early history of the church he founded andmany letters to the churches from its leaders, as well as one bookof end-time prophecy. Catholic Christians accept the Bible (though theirs includes theApocrypha, a group of books and sections that Protestants do notaccept), but they also accept tradition handed down from the churchfathers. Some other groups have additional sacred texts as well. Forexample, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (alsoknown as the Mormon Church) also considers the Book of Mormon andthe book Doctrine and Covenants, among others, to be sacred texts,in addition to the Bible. Christianity's sacred texts are collected together in the Bible. The Bible is broken in two parts: . The Old Testament - this contains all the sacred texts from thetime before Jesus. . The New Testament - this contains all the sacred text from thetime of Jesus and immediately thereafter. In the Protestant Bible, there are 39 sacred texts in the OldTestament. There are also 27 sacred texts in the New Testament. The Catholic Bible includes all the texts that are found in theProtestant Bible. It also includes an additional seven sacred textsin the Old Testament, plus some additional parts of the other OldTestament texts. These additional Old Testament texts are thosethat have only been preserved (or originally written) in Greek,whereas the Protestant Bible only includes those sacred texts inits Old Testament that were written in Hebrew or Aramaic. The only one that I know of is the Bible. Certain denominationshave supplementary texts, such as the Mormons or the ChristianScientists. Only the books of the bible are held sacred by most Christians.They are seen as God's self-revelation to mankind - divinelyinspired in some sense. The details differ between denominations,and Catholics and Protestants disagree as to which books should beincluded, but the essential idea is the same. There is a lot ofChristian "sacred writing" - i.e. writing about God or the church,but it isn't fundamentally different from other literature (perhapsuseful, but not divine revelation). Some Christian fringe groups have their own sacred books inaddition to the Bible. Mormons, for example, believe the Book ofMormon and Doctrines and Covenants are also inspired by God. Manyof these groups have their roots in Christianity and callthemselves Christian but are not viewed as such by mainstreamchurches. Answer / In terms of sacred texts of Christianity besides thewell known bible of sacred texts, here are some: The GeneralEpistle of Barnabas - written by Barnabas, a companion andfellow-preacher with Paul - cited by Origen, Jerome and many of theAncient Christian Authorities as Holy Scripture; The Shepherd ofHermas, - written by Hermas brother of Pius, bishop of Rome - citedby Irenaeus, Origen, Athanasius as Holy Scripture; The Epistles ofClement - written by Clement, a disciple of Peter - cited byJerome, Eusibus and Cyril, Patriarch of Alexandria, as HolyScripture.

The modern Bible is a collection of writings by ancient prophetsand other spiritually gifted writers. The writings have severaldistinct purposes. One is to remind the faithful that God is andhas been ever present in the history of mankind, and provides ahistory of the faith (and even foibles) of His… children through thecenturies. A second purpose is to teach the faithful the requirements ofsalvation. This is done in two ways. First, the Old Testament,based on the five books of Moses and many subsequent prophets,which was written to prepare the world for the coming of JesusChrist, the Messiah and Savior of the world. The New Testamentcomprises the writings of those who accepted Jesus Christ after Hisministry, and teaches mankind the gospel of peace. Prophets such as Isaiah, Jeremiah, and many others frequently wrotetheir prophecies related to both the coming of the Savior intomortality, as well as His second coming at the "last day."

christian scared texts teach the will of God, tell people how to get to heaven, give the account of creation, and gives the story of Jesus Christ
A short answer would be the Law and the Prophets - the Word of God.
Whether something is 'sacred' or not, has largely to do with whether you recognize someone or something as an authority for determining something as 'sacred'. From a Bible's standpoint, many things are 'sacred' because Jehovah God has determined them as 'sacred'. For example: a) Life is sacred… . Simply because God created it. Anything God creates should be regarded as sacred, and thus should be respected. b) Marriage is sacred , because God designated it that way. A man is to love and respect his wife; and she / him likewise. c) The Bible is sacred ; or should we say, God's words are sacred. Any rules, guidelines, coming from God should be considered with respect. (burning a worn-out old Bible should not be considered lack of respect - - unless it is meant to be such by the people burning it out of disrespect.) d) Likewise; with Christianity. Originally God made himself known to mankind through various people, including prophets. Then God sent his only-begotten son to repurchase mankind from their dismal future, inherited from Adam and Eve. Christ started a different way of life. This way of life should be considered as 'sacred' because it also originally issues forth from God. He that respects the Father, should also respect his sent-forth representative, Jesus; and the things he tells us from the Father.. ( Full Answer )
