I always have looked at denomination more as stacked from four root groups.   The first is based on Catholicism: The Catholic Church, The Orthodox Church, the Coptics, and the Ethiopians.   The second is the original church that formed from the reformers like Luther and Calvin.  The third was the Anglicans and their derivatives and final the fourth is everyone else.

All of this have their roots in the simple teachings of Jesus of Nazareth before he was elevated to Christ.   But that is how I have looked at it as it made it easier to handle everything Academically.

From the first century Church, a split happened around 375 AD. The split resulted in the group we now know as Baptist and their derivatives (ana-Baptist, etc) that went underground until later in the first millennial AD.

The other part of the split went to the Catholic Church when Constantine married the state to the Church. From the  Catholic brand of Christianity came all other denominations, sects and non-denominations, Orthodox (both eastern and western) you speak of.

While the Protestant groups began in the 1500/1600s, all come out of the Catholic Church and most all held onto many doctrines of the ROC.

Of course through the years there have been some splits within these denominations; some splits that took a turn away from ROC doctrines and some splits that stepped closer to the ROC...We see this today in the Ecumenical churches including some like Billy Graham's who has sided with the ROC.

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
