of Christianity The Medieval Church The Early Church The Church in Rome by Tom Clark The Modern Church is here The Beginning of the Church Christian Government Hope and Heresy zoom in, and add details to these Frames The Reformation The Protestant Push Gnosticism (1st Century BC) Christian Gnosticism
(1st Century AD) Gnosticism began to bleed over into early Christian beliefs, causing a tension in which the flesh was regarded as evil and the spirit was regarded as good. The Gnostic form of the gospel took a toll on the Old Testament, regarding it as a "primitive form of truth." The Gnostic belief's eventually lead to the Marcion Heresy. The Marcion Heresy
(85-160 AD) Marcion lived from 85 - 160 AD, during which time his beliefs strongly influenced the Christian Gnostic views. According to Marcion, the Old Testament was invalid - in fact, Marcion rewrote his own canon for the Scripture. Marcion only approved of an edited version of Luke and ten Epistles of Paul. However, Marcions heresy caused the church to take a closer look at the canon - a proccess that would take 400 years to complete. The Apostolic Fathers
(1st - 2nd Century AD) The Apostolic period ended with the death of John in 90 AD, and was marked by the
disciples trained directly by the Apostles. Many of them were supposedly trained by Peter
or John, personally. This time period embodied the system of Apostolic Succession which
the Catholic church still practices. 1st Century Persecutions 2nd Century Persecutions 3rd Century Persecutions
