- Marcionism was an Early Christian dualist belief system that originated in the teachings of Marcion of Sinope at Rome around the year 144. Marcion believed Jesus was the savior sent by God, and Paul the Apostle was his chief apostle, but he rejected the Hebrew Bible and the God of Israel.
- Docetism comes from the Greek word for "appearance" or "to seem" because it presents Jesus' flesh as an illusion. Standard Christian doctrine is that Jesus is both human and God, but Docetism did not believe a high, spiritual being could also be a lower, material being.
