Facing the same questions as the Docetists, the Marcionists decided that Jesus was a man but that his body was possessed by the divine son of God. Mary, of course, wasn’t a virgin, and Jesus wasn’t possessed until the wedding at Cana. At that point Jesus the man was cursed, leading to his death by crucifixion on the Hill of Golgotha, “the Place of the Skull.” Many followers of Marcion made themselves a secret promise to never allow themselves to be possessed by a spirit.
