Docetists (Ryan, Emily, Simron, Sequioa

The two major threads of Docetism are the a) Jesus was a phantom¬†and that b) Jesus was only human and that Christ is the divine spirit that entered him. The Gospel of Peter was the main text used and it was anti-Jewish. It can be interpreted as docetic and also proto-orthodox. 1 John was written as a response to the community of people who left, who he referred to as the “antichrist” Docetism is a Christology and not a belief or practice or of Christianity.
