Lecture no. 20 from the course: How Jesus Became God
Taught by Professor Bart D. Ehrman | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Learn about the conception of “modalism”, which proposed that the three are manifestations of one being, and modalism’s opponents.
