What sort of heresies cropped up in the Early Church during the days of the Apostles? Scripture itself gives us several clues as to the unique false teachings of that era. Unlike today when most denials of the Faith center upon rejecting the divinity of Jesus, this was not the issue for the Early Church. It was the *humanity* of Jesus which was questioned at that time. From the Cerinthians who had infiltrated the congregations to which St. John wrote, to the proto-gnostics against whom Peter & Jude penned their epistles, we will look at the scriptural witness of these early heresies, with a consideration of the Greek philosophies which so quickly began to influence the faithful.
Rev. John Drosendahl serves as pastor of Peace Lutheran Church, Goldsboro, NC and Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, Wilson, NC.
