One group of true believers had their own answer to the paradox posed by three simple questions. If Jesus were divine how could he die? If he were human how could he rise? If everyone were both human and divine what’s so special about Jesus? The Docetists, also known as Illusionists, believed that Jesus was strictly divine, and that his body was an illusion. Jesus wasn’t really born of Mary because he was already part of the trinity. He wasn’t born, he was never a child, he never got measles, he didn’t suffer, he never sinned, and he was always right. There could be no other explanation. Jesus wasn’t human. Knowing their own bodies were not illusions, Docetists concluded they were human, and, of course, as humans they could be wrong. This conclusion doomed them from the beginning.
