I didn't realize that South Korea had such a large Christian population.

It also had the "benefit" of a lot of missionary activity in the past.

And then back in my hometown of Centreville, Virginia, which has become a major K-town in the United States, you will also see Korean churches everywhere.

Korean Americans are far far more Christian than Koreans in ROK.

yeah but Koreans in the ROK are also Christian to a pretty high percentage. Something like 25-40% of the country is Christian which is substantially more than most countries in Asia. I think there was another comment here before that I was responding to saying that the commenter was in Korea and saw churches everywhere.... or something else can't remember.

Georgia is currently on the list in 9th place. I was surprised that Armenia didn't make the list though, but turns out their total population is just under 3 million.

Lebanon and East Timor should be on the list.

No they shouldn't, East Timor's population is going to be too low and Lebenon is a Majority Muslim country.

Actually, in terms of religion, Lebanon is the most diverse country in the MENA region. It's barely over 50% Muslim (NB: figures that include the Druze as Muslim are silly, since Druze don't identify as Muslim and most Muslims don't accept Druze as Muslim either). But it still wouldn't make the list since despite having a 40% Christian population, it's a teensy country of under 7 million people.

Muslims are likely over 50% w/o the Druze but any numbers are only estimates as Lebanon does not do a national census,

You should keep Russia in as a guess, many people know it's in Asia too.

Russia is counted as a European country on jetpunk. If it's left as a guess the only comments you'll see here will be complaints.

Usually the European part is included as Europe and the Asian part as Asia - I agree it should have to be guessed.

What about Israel?

Level 54
Feb 15, 2021
Only about 177,000 Israeli's are Christians (about 2% of their population). You may be thinking of Jews which also follow the Bible, but only the law and not the New Testament.

@Geopro this is an odd way to phrase this to my ears. Obviously you are right in saying that the New Testament is not part of Judaism. But what do you mean Jews "also follow the Bible, but only the law"? Christians 'borrowed' the Tanakh, renamed it the Old Testament, and wrote the New Testament. The Tanakh, or what some call the Hebrew Bible, is not the entirety of Jewish religious texts. For example, the Torah is the foundation of Jewish religious laws; additionally there are perushim/rabbinic writings, not to mention the Oral Torah.

I don't think he's thinking of Jews. There are still a lot of Christians in Israel. Something like 2% of the population in Israel proper and maybe 3 or 4% in the West Bank. Before the Arab conquest and forced/coerced conversion of most of the locals, the area was almost exclusively Christian. (There were many Jewish families and communities scattered about but most of the time they were prohibited from entering Jerusalem) Then after Jews started developing and cultivating the land during the late Ottoman period, there were huge waves of Arab immigration into the province and later territory. A lot of those Arab immigrants were Christians from Jordan, Syria, Egypt and elsewhere. At around the same time there was a religious movement amongst Evangelical Christians in the West, mostly in the USA, who were seeking to usher in the end times by supporting Zionism, and a lot of Western Christians immigrated to Israel. Plus there are the Armenians that have been there forever...
