    Gnosticism taught that Jesus was not really human.   p. 81

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Gnosticism was a religious movement that emerged in the early Christian era. One of the key beliefs of Gnosticism was the idea that the material world was inherently evil and that spiritual enlightenment could only be achieved by transcending it. As a result, Gnostics believed that Jesus, being a divine figure, could not have taken on a physical human form, as that would mean being associated with the corrupt material world. Therefore, according to Gnosticism, Jesus was not really human. This aligns with the statement given in the question, making the answer "True".

    Arianism taught that Jesus was not truly divine.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Arianism was a theological belief in the early Christian church that denied the divinity of Jesus. According to Arianism, Jesus was not equal to God the Father and was instead a created being. This belief was considered heretical by the mainstream Christian church, which taught that Jesus was indeed divine and equal to God. Therefore, the statement that Arianism taught that Jesus was not truly divine is true.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Nestorianism was a theological belief that emerged in the 5th century, which taught that Jesus had two separate natures - one human and one divine - and that these two natures existed as two distinct persons. This belief was considered heretical by the mainstream Christian church, which believed in the concept of the hypostatic union, that Jesus was fully human and fully divine in one person. Therefore, the statement that Nestorianism taught that Jesus was two separate persons is true.

It affirms the unity of Jesus' divine and human natures and highlights the significance of Mary's role in the Incarnation.

    To be a Christian, it is necessary that one believe that Jesus is the Son of God.   p. 83

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    To be a Christian, it is necessary to believe that Jesus is the Son of God. This belief is a fundamental aspect of Christianity and is central to the faith. Christians believe that Jesus is not just a prophet or a teacher, but the Son of God who came to Earth to save humanity from sin. This belief in Jesus as the Son of God is what distinguishes Christianity from other religions and is a core tenet of the faith. Therefore, the statement "To be a Christian, it is necessary that one believe that Jesus is the Son of God" is true.
