About the Cyclopedia


View that because Christ is begotten of the Father, He is subordinate to the Father in essence and majesty, being God is a secondary or lesser sense. Found in crass form in Arianism, Ritschlianism, and modernism, in subtler forms in other misinterpretations of Jn 14:28 (which is properly understood in reference to Christ's human nature in His state of humiliation, as the context shows).
