Session 4 - The Deity and Humanity of Jesus Christ

Overview: The ultimate idea to which the Da Vinci code is driving is that Jesus was merely a human prophet, and that this was what virtually all Christians believed until the time of Constantine. It teaches that Constantine needed Jesus to be a Divine figure in order to unite the empire, and so he forced this idea upon Christians. Furthermore, since Christian writings had not taught this before, the real Christian documents which portrayed a merely human Jesus were banished and destroyed, and replacement documents which portrayed a Divine Jesus were put into the Christian New Testament.

What did early Christians believe about the nature of Christ? Did they think he was Divine, human, or both?
