Jesus is to Christianity as pasta is to Italians

Pasta is Italian, bagels are Jewish, and chicken chow mein is Chinese right? Wrong; the bagel’s roots are not Jewish, but rather Italian. While pasta history begins in China, the Chinese food staple chow mein is actually an American dish. What does this lost history of these different popular foods have to do with Jesus and Christianity? The answer is simple.
