I will get back to my discussion of Christology soon (tomorrow?) but wanted to take a break and talk about something else that came up in my reading today.   I’m working diligently on finishing the research for my next book How Jesus Became God.  My goal is to finish all the research in about three weeks.   Unfortunately, I can’t be devoting my entire attention to the research just now because I have other things hanging fire.  I’m putting the final touches on The Other Gospels manuscript, which I hope to have finished this week; and next week I will be in Washington D.C. recording a 24-lecture course for the Teaching Company on “The Greatest Controversies in Early Christianity.”  That will take the entire week, and when I won’t be giving a lecture (six a day), I’ll be too exhausted and brain dead to think about much anything else.   But after that I have a few weeks to work, with only weekends away for giving lectures in various spots.  And I hope to start writing about a month from now.

Anyway, I’m doing the final stages of my research, and today among other things I decided to reread a passage in Eusebius’s Church History about a group of Christians, prominent for a time in the second century Roman church, who are sometimes called “adoptionists” (or Roman adoptionists, to distinguish them from Jewish Christian adoptionists), but possibly are better to be called “Theodotians.”
