  • By "sect" I assume you mean section, in a sense yes its like the same religion.

  • Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, belong to a larger group called Abrahamic religions.

  • the formally succeeded from us

  • Though they stem from a single source, they no longer share the same principles, so I would have to say no; however to provide an example of how I define "sects" in terms of a religion is as follows: Christianity - Protestant, Baptist, Catholic, Lutheran, etc... Judaism - Hasidic Jew, Orthadox, Reformist, etc...

  • No. They worship a different god. is this not reason enough?

How exactly is Christianity derived from Judaism?

Jesus was a jew, then those who followed jesus are christians. Christianity literally came from judaism.

@Reeseroni The Jewish faith says that a messiah, the promised deliverer of the Jewish nation prophesied in the Hebrew Bible, will be sent by God. The Jews that believed Jesus Christ is that messiah became the Christians. Those that don't believe Jesus was the messiah remain as the Jews.

Christianity is a spin-off of Judaism, but they became quite different through time.
