Christianity was founded around 30 AD in contrast to Judaism which started around 1000 BC.

Translation The King James Version (KJV) of the passage reads as follows: 1And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house. 2And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.
