  1. Transubstantiation
  2. Reincarnation
  3. Personal salvation
  4. Sacrificial offerings
Answer - C - Early Christianity shared the idea of personal salvation with Mahayana Buddhism.

Key Takeaway: Also known as the “greater vehicle,” Mahayana Buddhism puts special emphasis on the idea of personal salvation being accessible to all followers. Though very different from Mahayana Buddhism in its beliefs, early Christianity shared this personal sense of salvation. In early Mahayana Buddhism, salvation could be based upon faith, imaging, or sometimes even invoking Buddha’s name.
