    I don't think he would. Technically, Jesus couldn't even be a Christian, since he is Christ himself.

    probably not...simply based on his diet

    -he turned the water into wine
    -he fed the multitudes with bread and fish (no mention of chicken)

    No,no, and no! Jesus was BORN a JEW. He was circumcised and practiced the Jewish religion from the time he was a child, all the way through adulthood.He observed the feast days and the Jewish Sabbath days as well.

    But what he taught was a message from his Father. He came to do the will OF HIS FATHER. He taught spiritual truths that pertain to living and gaining eternal life. He was both a teacher and a Rabbi. But veiled within his flesh he was the living Son of God.

    Jesus was neither Baptist, Methodist or any denomination as we know of today. As a man he was 100% Jewish through and through.Named denominations really didn't come to be until AFTER the Reformation era, with the exception of the Catholic church, whose name goes back to the very first century.

    I would agree except there are some other pre-reformational named groups that are non Catholic or Eastern Orthodox, some still in existence today. Many held non-trinitarian beliefs now considered to be heterodoxy and were persecuted by the Catholic and Orthodox church for them.

    Donatist 300-400 AD (no longer exists)

    Schisms from Ecumenical Councils
    Assyrian Church of the East 431 AD (still exist)
    Oriental Orthodox 451 AD (still exists, recently reconciled with the RCC in 1984)

    Gnostic groups
    Paulicans 650-872 AD (no longer exist)
    Bogomils 950-1396 AD (no longer exist)
    Cathars/Albigensians 1010-1321 AD (no longer exist)

    Pre-Reformational Protestant groups
    Waldensians 1173-1500s AD (absorbed into reformation)
    Lollards 1350s-1532 AD (absorbed into reformation)
    Hussites 1415-1620 AD (reborn in 1919)
