Was Christ Human? The Docetic View

Lecture no. 17 from the course: How Jesus Became God

Was Christ Human? The Docetic View

Taught by Professor Bart D. Ehrman | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

In the second and third centuries, Christian groups followed radically different beliefs and theologies. Learn about the “docetists”, who believed Jesus was not human, but only appeared to be so, highlighting Marcion, a docetist who conceived of two distinct gods—a God of the Jews and a God of Jesus.
