You can access the show notes for Jacob 5 here. We talk about many of the ways early Christians viewed Jesus in the first couple of centuries after Jesus and how it relates to Jacob 5.30. Some early Christians did not believe that Jesus experienced mortality, that he actually suffered on the cross. These Christians were called Docetists. Here is a chart illustrating the anti-docetic teachings of 1-3 John in the New Testament. Here you can read about other views of Jesus in the first few centuries when Christianity began to take root.
