My bad. My dates were off a bit. Constantine wasn't until 4th century AD. By this point in time Jesus's ideas had spread some, but there were a lot of splinter groups.
Constantine was a Roman Emperor who declared a particular version to be the State Religion. It got ugly, but it was because of the structure provided by him that the church you go to now exists. As a number of splintered groups, there was little cohesion in the Church. There were Councils, like that of Nicea, that tried to implement universal beliefs, but it just wasn't working...
I will be the first to admit that I don't know nearly as much about things like this as I would prefer to...but we all have to prioritize. Apologies for the mistake on dates earlier.
