Lists are horrible literary devices; notwithstanding we include yet another here, to show a non-comprehensive list of faith groups that either resulted from, or were directly influenced by the ministry of Iesous. Following the work of Iesous, changes occurred in many faith groups, and as one would expect, new groups formed. Over the years, some of the groups amalgamated and became worldwide religions—Manicheism is an example—the Christians shut many down, and several were not viable right from their genesis.
|Gnostic Christians (many different groups)||Mandaeism|
|Manichaeism (later)||Ancient Church of the East (not Orthodox Church of the East)|
|Christians (reformation within Judaism)||Mahayana (reformation within Buddhism)|
|Pure Land Buddhism||Nestorians|
