Mark D. Roberts is beginning a new series titled “Was Jesus Divine? Early Christian Perspectives.” In it he hopes
to examine closely the historical roots of Christian belief in the divinity of Jesus. In particular, I want to examine historical evidence for the fact that the earliest Christians held Jesus to be, somehow, God in the flesh. I also want to explain why they came to this rather peculiar conviction.
Roberts is both a scholar and a pastor, and this blog series should prove to be very informative.
