Adoptionist Logic

Today we talked about adoptionists taking and altering texts, specifically the Hebrew Bible, to make it mean what they want in order to support their point of view. For example, the Ebionite adoptionists changed locusts to pancakes to support their vegetarian views. This is in addition to picking which scriptures and stories that were read in the first place. Proto-orthodox read the bible in a way that supported a preexisting Christ and Christian superiority without major changes to the text.
