Ebionism is the incorrect theological view that Jesus was not divine, but merely an ordinary man. Furthermore it says that Jesus was adopted by the God the Father in order to be called the Son of God. This view is false due to the following scriptures: John 1:1,14; Col. 2:9; Phil. 2:5-8; Heb. 1:8. See also Docetism and Apollinarianism.
