Christianity grew historically from Judaism. As we know, Jesus was a Jew and was reforming Judaism. He did not set out to create an entirely new religion, yet he did. Conduct some research in reliable academic sources (not the internet) and discover two unique beliefs or doctrines in Catholicism that distinguish it from Judaism and other monotheistic religions. For each of those two beliefs, write a 4-5 page paper (about 1,500-2,000 words) in which you do the following:
Identify and describe the teachings from a Church Council or Church document that established and finalized this belief.
Identify and describe any competing notions about this belief that were not adopted by the Church, if any.
Quote and explain one significant biblical passage that relates to this belief (Church documents can point you to these).
Some beliefs/doctrines that you might consider are Mary as Co-Redemptoress, the Immaculate Conception, the Incarnation, the Trinity, the Atonement, The Kingdom of God, Revelation, Redemption, Salvation, the Holy Spirit, Apostolic Succession and so on. Make sure it is a belief or doctrine that is unique to Catholicism.
