Is Jesus Like Captain America? (part 2)

We are continuing a series of episodes comparing Jesus to superheroes. This series will tackle wrong ideas about Jesus from church history in chronological order. A superhero will represent each of these ideas.

This is part 2 of 2 3 of "Is Jesus Like Captain America?"

We review the following:

  1. Who is Captain America?
  2. How are Jesus and Captain America similar?
  3. How are Jesus and Captain America different?
  4. What is Eutychianism?
  5. What happened at the "robber council"?

Then, we answer these questions:

  1. What was the Council of Chalcedon?
  2. How does the Council of Chalcedon argue against papal primacy?
  3. What did the Council of Chalcedon decree against prior heresies about Jesus?
