Marcion The third major heretical group began with a man named Marcion. Many Christian writers of his day classified him as a Gnostic, but his system was significantly different. His theology did contain a number of Gnostic elements, and like Gnosticism it incorporated both pagan and Christian features. Nevertheless, he developed a doctrine and a movement of his own. The basis of Marcion’s theology was a belief in two deities—the Creator, or Demiurge, and the Redeemer. The Creator is evil and the one who inspired the Old Testament, which Marcion rejected.
By these views they denied the fundamental doctrine of Jesus Christ and the New Testament message of salvation. Some writers have applied the label of Ebionite to all Jewish Christians who continued to keep the law of Moses. Such people were not necessarily heretical, but the adjective heretical properly applies to all who made the keeping of the law necessary for salvation and especially to all who denied the deity and atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Gnosticism The Gnostics were powerful opponents of Christianity in the second century.
In the New Testament, however, Son refers to the Incarnation. Jesus Christ is the eternal God, and His Spirit is the Spirit of God from eternity past, but Jesus was not the Son until He came in flesh in the Incarnation. ) God was revealed in the Son; God came in flesh as the Son (II Corinthians 5:19; I Timothy 3:16). To put it another way, the Word of God, or the Logos, was revealed in the Son. Although Jesus is both Logos and Son, in scriptural terminology there is not an exact equation of the terms.
