THEO 373 - Person & Mission of Jesus: Heresies

This course explores New Testament understandings of some of the titles of Jesus, such as Christ, Lord, and Savior, and investigates the development of Christological doctrine in the early centuries of Christianity.

Christian heresies

"During the first five centuries or so of Christianity, a number of false teachings, called heresies, about Jesus arose in the church.  They clustered into two main categories: one that denied Jesus' humanity, the other that denied his divinity." (Pennock, M.F. The Seeker's Catacheism; pg. 17)
