Is Jesus Like Doctor Octopus? (part 3)

We are continuing and finally concluding a series of episodes comparing Jesus to superheroes. This series will tackle wrong ideas about Jesus from church history in chronological order. A superhero (in this case a super villain) will represent each of these ideas.

This is part 3 of 3 of “Is Jesus Like Doctor Octopus?”

In this episode we cover two takeaways from the monothelite controversy that matter to us today:

  1. Monothelitism compromises substitutionary atonement (Heb 2:14-18; 4:15; 5:7-9).
  2. The barrage of anathemas against Pope Honorius I who was complicit in the error refutes the Roman Catholic dogma of papal infallibility.
