In the past, the entire world was under the ruling of the Rome, which gave to the Roman Empire and the republican, whose control and power was among the common people. Under this republican, the Rome then grew to be the higher and powerful state in the world. Therefore, increase of territory thus lead to the increase of desire for politicians to have power and control over the land. A number of events in the early century then resulted to a demise of the leadership of Julius Caesar and Augustus then leading to a formation of the Roman Empire. In the republic, people were responsible of electing senators who were mandated in running the government. Voting exercise could be dominated by the wealthy and bribery taking the order of the day.
The empire later underwent a chronicle change that resulted into an establishment of Christianity by the Jewish.
In spite of that, the common people were able to sustain their power in the affairs resulting from the government ((Duiker, William, and Spielvogel 124). The formations of the Rome republic then lead to hardship in the management of the resources of the growing country by the politicians. However, the landowners and other extreme wealthy people had a political influence to the economic developments of country. This lead to the gain of influence in the land resulting to their ability to serve in the military and due to the riches they owned, it lead to a dwindle in terms of the availability of the soldiers leading to an unstable force (Miola and Robert, 13).
In 133 B.C, Gracchus was then elected as a politician and mandated to take the responsibility of a tribunal which could reshape the Rome into a more honest and quite pure as it had been earlier. Among the responsibilities assigned to this leader was to ensure that an equal proportion of the land could be allocated to all citizens and regulating the amount of land an individual could own. He had to ensure that every citizen is given an opportunity to vote as compared to an early rule which gave way for only the Romans to vote. This resulted to an allegation that the ideas of Gracchus were quite controversial leading to riot that in return ended to his murder. Then problems arose with all the reforms and hence general Marius established a new rule that disqualified those who owned land were not supposed to be owners on a condition of being soldiers.
Later, in 88 B.C, Sulla was able to gain power in the senate after being elected consul then challenging the most powerful man within Rome. This lead to a civil war and saw Marius with the army impart some force on his leadership and hence fleeing. Therefore the end of Sulla’s leadership which was full of dictatorship gave way to the senate and Pompey gained much favor due to his victory in the military from the public. Later the republic died while the senate’s mandate becoming minimal in the issues related to the government. The empire remained unchallenged with some Caesars owning power to rule Rome after Augustus. Besides the republic, Rome maintained a continuous expansion for some time until it them declined. The Roman Empire was absorbed into politics and war thus affecting the economic standards of the country. Some few individuals could enjoy the luxury of philosophy and besides the Greeks analyzing the extant at which such was attained. Rome then had a lip service which was based on the philosophy to some extent promoting slavery (Chambers and Mortimer 780).
The Christianity begun in the time when Jesus was born in the 6B.C. this was within the Bethlehem city and given a Hebrew name. Jesus as a young man then became religious and joined group of some ascetic Jews under the leadership of the Baptist known as John. He then later took the leadership and enjoined by some twelve disciples who could preach the gospel and thus enhancing Christianity. These disciples were from all type of walk and different cultures but wandered the areas at the expense of spreading the gospel besides staying unfriendly with the authorities in those areas. Jesus’ gospel then strengthened and hence promoted good ethics of ensuring that people could love their neighbors as they loved themselves (Duiker, William, and Spielvogel, 130).
The Jewish then felt an opposition to the roman and based they believe in God who could send a messiah to save them from their burdens. As time went by, Jesus took the responsibility of spreading the gospel a preached according to the Bible. He then emphasized about the kingdom of God which had a reward and rest from the sinful nature of mankind. Later, the early Christianity split into two whereby one group followed peter who was the original disciple of Jesus and being Jews, they continued with their traditions. Another group thus followed Paul who was more of non-Jewish, took the responsibility of ensuring that the Jewish are converted and move away from such practices of traditions and beliefs.
Christianity spread in the whole country with a main aim of converting the wrong doers to fit into the kingdom of God by following the trinity as per the Bible.
Christianity overpowered the region through being more of psychological as compared to others, which were philosophical, and thus gaining strength. Although it was considered as the region of the poor, many people begun to accept it and practicing what the messengers were teaching them. Therefore, a battle erupted with the emperor in the northern part of Rome thus Christians winning. This hence led to a continuous practice of Christianity.
