Shakespeare made up the name “Jessica” for his play Merchant of Venice.
Shakespeare probably based it on the biblical name ISCAH, which would have been spelled Jescha in his time.

10 Differences Between Catholics & Christians

There are many, many other differences but these are the first 10 that come to mind.  Do feel free to add any that you can think of.

CatholicsChristiansThe Bbible
1Pray to God through Mary and the SaintsPray to God through JesusJohn 14.6 - Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
2Practice idolatry through praying to, and kissing the bones of the dead Popes and Saints as well as kissing the feet of statuesDo not practice idolatry The 2nd Commandment - “You shall not make for yourself any idol, nor bow down to it or worship it.”
3The Catholic Church has removed the 2nd commandment and replaced it by splitting the 10th commandment into the 9th and 10thChristians have kept the 10 commandments as was given to Moses by GodDeuteronomy 4.2 - "You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God that I command you".
4The Church encourages confession to a Priest who will then give punishment and absolve sins.The Church does not take confessions or forgive sins but believe all should confess directly to JesusPsalm 51. "No man can forgive sins. Neither has any man other than Jesus Christ, our High Priest, been given the office of mediator between mankind and God"
5Display statues of Jesus as a baby in the arms of Mary - Thereby putting Mary above Jesus.Do not display any statues of JesusThe 2nd Commandment - “You shall not make for yourself any idol, nor bow down to it or worship it”
6Call Mary “The Mother of God” - thereby placing Mary above GodCall Mary the Mother of Jesus - Blessed because she was chosen by God as the woman that was to give birth to Christ.Mary gave birth to Jesus before the Holy Spirit (God) entered into him.  She did not therefore give birth to God.
7Church members are strongly encouraged to tithe as a duty.Church members are not expected to tithe.  But will give what they can afford from the heart.2 Corinthians 9.7 - "Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver"
8Create man made rules and laws and Practice rights copied into the church from the worship of the pagan sun godFollow the Bible and Christ’s teaching only, with no deviation
9Tortured and murdered millions of Christians and Jews throughout the ages including being part of the holocaust of WWII as the Catholic Church also wanted to wipe the Jews off the face of the earth.Tortured and murdered no oneThe 6th Commandment - “You shall not murder"
10Priests are required to be celibate, and the result is tremendous failures in the areas of adultery, fornication, and the sexual abuse of children.Christian Ministers are allowed and even encouraged to have a happy family life.Nowhere in the Bible does it expect, encourage or ask for priests or those teaching the word of Christ to be celibate.
