“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them”.
Matthew, 18:20 KJV
In earlier Christianity, docetism (from the KoinÄ Greek: Î´Î¿ÎºÎµá¿Î½/Î´ÏÎºÎ·ÏÎ¹Ï dokeÄ©n “to seem”, dókÄsis “apparition, phantom”) is the doctrine that the phenomenon of Jesus, his historical and bodily existence, and above all the human form of Jesus, was mere semblance without any true reality. Broadly it is taken as the belief that Jesus only seemed to be human, and that his human form was an illusion. Docetism was banned as an heresy by the Council of Nicea.
