Is it True that Jesus’ Divinity was Invented by Constantine at the Council of Nicea

Is it True that Jesus’ Divinity was Invented by Constantine at the Council of Nicea?
“Indeed,” Teabing said. “…During this fusion of religions, Constantine needed to strengthen the new Christian tradition, and held a famous ecumenical gathering known as the Council of Nicaea.”…
“At this gathering,” Teabing said, “many aspects of Christianity were debated and voted upon—the date of Easter, the role of the bishops. The administration of sacraments, and of course, the divinity of Jesus.”
[Sophie] “I don’t follow. His divinity?” “My dear,” Teabing declared, “until that moment in history, Jesus was viewed by His followers as a mortal prophet… a great and powerful man, but a man nonetheless. A mortal.” “Not the Son of God?” “Right,” Teabing said. “Jesus’ establishment as ‘the Son of God” was officially proposed and voted on by the Council of Nicaea.” “Hold on. You’re saying Jesus’ divinity was the result of a vote?” “A relatively close vote at that,” Teabing added….
Was Christ’s Deity Invented by the Christian Church in the 4th Century?
In response to the charge made above, we want to begin by quoting from a letter that Eusebius of Caesarea sent back from Nicea to his diocese. He says,
- …We believe in One God, the Father Almighty, the Maker of all things visible and invisible. And in One Lord Jesus Christ, the Word of God, God from God, Light from Light, Life from Life, Son Only-begotten, first-born of every creature, before all the ages, begotten from the Father, by Whom also all things were made; Who for our salvation was made flesh, and lived among men, and suffered, and rose again the third day, and ascended to the Father, and will come again in glory to judge the quick and dead. And we believe also in One Holy Ghost: believing each of these to be and to exist, the Father truly Father, and the Son truly Son, and the Holy Ghost truly Holy Ghost, as also our Lord, sending forth His disciples for the preaching, said, “Go teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” Concerning Whom we confidently affirm that so we hold, and so we think, and so we have held aforetime, and we maintain this faith unto the death, anathematizing every godless heresy. That this we have ever thought from our heart and soul, from the time we recollect ourselves, and now think and say in truth, before God Almighty and our Lord Jesus Christ do we witness, being able by proofs to shew and to convince you, that, even in times past, such has been our belief and preaching.
Remember, Eusebius was a participant in the Council of Nicea. His conclusion was that the Council merely affirmed what the Church had always believed and taught about Jesus’ divinity.
In spite of testimony like this, many liberal theologians maintain that Jesus’ divinity, and the related doctrine of the trinity were not part of the teachings of Jesus and the apostles, but merely invented by the church centuries later. For example, in a sermon given in August, 1964, at New York City, liberal theologian James A. Pike declared, “The Trinity is not necessary. Our Lord never heard of it. The apostles knew nothing of it.” Victor Paul Wierwille, founder of “The Way International,” claims in his book, Jesus Christ Is Not God, that the early church (to 330 A.D.) never believed in the Trinity or in Christ’s deity. He argues,
- Certainly, during this time, church leaders spoke of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but they never referred to them as co-equal.… In fact, the opposite was the case. They spoke of the Father as supreme, the true and only God…and of the son as inferior… having a beginning, visible, begotten, immutable.
But is this really what we find when we carefully examine the writings of the earliest Christian leaders, or is this allegation merely an invention by those who, for whatever reason, choose not to believe in the Trinity?
The following chronological examples show that the early church clearly did believe that Jesus Christ was God long before the Council of Nicea (325 A.D.):
Ignatius (30-107 A.D.), who was born before Christ died, consistently spoke of the deity of Jesus Christ. Consider a few examples: In To the Ephesians, and other letters, we find references such as the following: “Jesus Christ our God”; “who is God and man”; “received knowledge of God, that is, Jesus Christ”; “for our God, Jesus the Christ”; “for God was manifest as man”; “Christ, who was from eternity with the Father”; “from God, from Jesus Christ”; “from Jesus Christ, our God”; “Our God, Jesus Christ”; “suffer me to follow the example of the passion of my God”; “Jesus Christ the God” and “Our God Jesus Christ.” The fact that Ignatius was not rebuked, nor branded as teaching heresy by any of the churches or Christian leaders he sent letters to proves that the early church, long before 107 A.D., accepted the deity of Christ.
Polycarp (69-155 A.D.) possibly spoke of “Our Lord and God Jesus Christ.”
Justin Martyr (100-165 A.D.) wrote of Jesus, “who,… being the first-begotten Word of God, is even God.” In his Dialogue with Trypho, he stated that “God was born from a virgin” and that Jesus was “worthy of worship” and of being “called Lord and God.”
Tatian (110-172 A.D.), the early apologist wrote, “We do not act as fools, O Greeks, nor utter idle tales when we announce that God was born in the form of man.”
Irenaeus (120-202 A.D.), wrote that Jesus was “perfect God and perfect man”; “not a mere man…but was very God”; and that “He is in Himself in His own right…God, and Lord, and King Eternal” and spoke of “Christ Jesus, our Lord, and God, and Saviour and King”
Tertullian (145-220 A.D.), said of Jesus “Christ is also God” because “that which has come forth from God [in the virgin birth] is at once God and the Son of God, and the two are one…in His birth, God and man united.”
Caius (180-217 A.D.), a Roman Presbyter, wrote of the universal Christian attestation to the deity of Christ in his refutation of Artemon, who maintained that Christ was only a man. Note that before 217 A.D., Caius appealed to much earlier writers, all of whom taught Christ’s deity: “Justin and Miltiades, and Tatian and Clement, and many others,—who is ignorant of the books of Irenaeus and Melito, and the rest, which declare Christ to be God and man? All the psalms, too, and hymns of brethren, which have been written from the beginning by the faithful, celebrate Christ the Word of God, ascribing divinity to Him…. [This] doctrine of the Church, then, has been proclaimed so many years ago,…”
Gregory Thaumaturgus (205-265 A.D.) declared in On the Trinity, that “All [the persons] are one nature, one essence, one will, and are called the Holy Trinity; and these also are names subsistent, one nature in three persons, and one genus [kind].”
Novatian (210-280 A.D.) wrote in his On The Trinity, of Jesus being truly a man but that “He was also God according to the Scriptures…. Scripture has as much described Jesus Christ to be man, as moreover it has also described Christ the Lord to be God.” (Note then, that in the 200’s we already had discourses on the Trinity.)
Athanasius (293-373 A.D.), the keen defender of New Testament teaching against the early Arian heresy, which taught that Jesus Christ was not God, declared of Jesus, “He always was and is God and Son” and “He who is eternally God,… also became man for our sake.”
Alexander of Alexandria spoke in reference to Jesus of “his highest and essential divinity” and that he was “an exact and identical image of the Father.”
Eusebius of Caesarea stated that “the Son of God bears no resemblance to originated creatures but…is alike in every way only to the Father who has begotten [Him] and that he is not from any other hypostasis and substance but from the Father.”
Augustine declared that Christians “…believe that Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one God, maker and ruler of the whole creation: that Father is not Son, nor Holy Spirit Father or Son; but a Trinity of mutually related Persons, and a unity of equal essence” and that therefore, “the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit God; and all together are one God.”
Origen stated that Christ was “God and man.”
Tertullian wrote of Jesus that “He is God and man…. We have here a dual condition—not fused but united—in one person, Jesus as God and man.”
Proclus wrote, “He was born of woman, God but not solely God, and man but not merely man…. Christ did not by progress become God—heaven forbid!—but in mercy he became man, as we believe. We do not preach a deified man; we confess an incarnate God…him alone who was born of a virgin, God and man.”
Cyril of Alexandria wrote of Jesus, “For he remained what he was; that is, by nature God. But…he took it on himself to be man as well” and “There is nothing to prevent us from thinking of Christ as being the one and only Son at once both God and man, perfect in deity and perfect in humanity…he is conceived of as God and is God,…”
These are only a few of the references that could be cited.
In conclusion, from the very first, church leaders—immediately after the time of the apostles up to the Council of Nicaea in the 4th century and beyond—had consistently believed and taught that Jesus Christ is God. Therefore, Dan Brown and others are clearly mistaken when they maintain that the divinity of Jesus was “invented” by Christians in the 4th century.
Only one logical explanation can be given for this abundant early testimony to the deity of Jesus Christ: early church leaders were simply declaring what was already declared by Jesus Christ and the apostles in Holy Scripture—that Christ was indeed God. As Gregory of Nazianzus stated in his “Third Theological Oration Concerning the Son,” “From their [the apostles] great and exalted discourses we have discovered and preached the deity of the Son.”
The truth is that for those today who deny Christ’s deity—as for the early Arians—the concept that Jesus could be God, part of the Trinity, is simply a stumbling block to their rationalism. What they cannot fully comprehend, they will not accept. However, the doctrine of the Trinity cannot be rejected on biblical or historical grounds because the testimony for it is too abundant. It can only be rejected on philosophical and personal grounds which have no merit.
How influential was Constantine at Nicea?
From the above information, it should be clear that Constantine did not “invent” the deity of Jesus. But how much influence did he have on what happened at the Council of Nicea? According to one account,
- Constantine did play an important role at the Council. Eusebius of Caesarea reports that he played a key part in calming, convincing, and bringing all to agreement on contested points. The account of Eusebius fairly glows in regard to the Emperor, and he is portrayed as a key figure. It is nowhere suggested, however, that he was permitted to vote with the bishops nor that he used any form of force to obtain an outcome….
- The Church was willing to accept the help of an emperor, to listen to what he had to say, but not to accept the rule of an emperor in matters of faith. However one describes the role of Constantine at the Council of Nicea, it must be remembered that the Creed of Nicea expressed what the great majority of bishops at the council found to be traditional, Biblical, and orthodox of the Christian faith, a faith in which they believed so firmly that they were willing to die for it.
One other point needs to be made: In The Da Vinci Code, Teabing declares that Jesus’ divinity was decided by a “close vote”. Is this true?
It is not accurate to say that there was a “vote” at Nicea regarding the divinity of Jesus. As one source reveals, “And there certainly was no vote to determine Jesus’ divinity: this was already a matter of common knowledge among Christians, and had been from the early years of the religion.
The Bishops did, however, have to decide whether or not to sign the statement the Council drafted which clarified their understanding of the historical and biblical teaching concerning Jesus’ nature. If this is what Brown—and his alter ego Teabing—meant by a “vote”, then it wasn’t very close: “Only two out of more than 300 bishops failed to sign the creed!”

First off, Jesus Christ never claimed divinity, and this is stated in the Bible, all u have to do is watch this video ( The Bible says Jesus is not God by merciful servant), this video–and countless others– shows the conclusive irrefutable evidence from the Bible that all Christians follow and believe to be true that Jesus isn’t a God.
Moreover, does it really make any sense for God to send a countless amount of prophets throughout thousands of years like Noah, Abraham, Moses, etc with the idea of strict monotheism and none had ever mentioned directly or indirectly ambiguously or unambiguously that there is something called trinity or even the number 3, to all of a sudden reveal a trinity ?!
Second, only after the council of Nicaea was Jesus thought to be God and that was after a strong debate between the Unitarians led by Arius (by the way Arius was one of the best students of Saint Lucian of Antioch or Lucian the martyr –who was a Unitarian–that almost all Christians respect, along with Eusebius and others, and unfortunately that quote was corrupted and the strongest evidence is that Eusebius himself made king “Constantine the first” a Unitarian and no one can possibly provide any reliable evidence to the contrary), and the trinitarians led by Anathius of Alexandria who invented the heresy of trinity with his teacher “Pope Alexander the first of Alexandria”, and what’s ironic about that is that Anathius was born into a pagan family and later on has been adopted by Alexander I to bear his heresy of the trinity, and to know the whole story watch The reliable evident episodes of Arius and Unitarians and how have trinitarians tortured, crucified, and killed Unitarians in the last of the fourth century and in the fifth century– a truth that has been concealed from u deliberately– the episodes are the 21st and 22nd of the great hundred program by Jihad Alturbani.
Finally, if you do want to know the truth behind Jesus “peace and blessings be upon him” you will never allow yourself to be swayed by the winds of the Herd cuz –as we all know– the Herd could be manipulated, so never allow others to decide what your life is gonna be and where you are going cuz this is no one’s business but ur own, furthermore, u are the one to be judged about ur actions and about ur way of life in the judgement day. In fact, the only thing u can do to know the truth is “read”, read the Bible thoroughly with an open mind and not necessarily only the Bible u can read from all sources and use ur mind to know whether they are right and logical or wrong and crab, your God has gifted u with a mind that distinguishes u from other creations for u to use to know him, to know who he really is and to walk the straight path to paradise, thus use your reasoning skills, read with an impartial, open, objective mind inasmuch as this is the main purpose of our lives and this is the biggest test that if we successfully pass we can show that we deserve God’s gifts upon us(i.e mind, perfection in creation, etc..) and that we deserve more (i.e paradise).
I wish you all the best with your current lives and in the hereafter.
Bible full of allegories Jesus is the Sun God
The letter “J” wasn’t invented until the 1500’s, so there wasn’t any Jesus, John, Job, Jacob, Jeremiah, etc… That being said, none of the quotes you mentioned apply. If they were factual, you would have called him Ieosus, not Jesus. source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J
Jesus was created at the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD when Constantine brought together all of the Yeshua ben Yosef cults to create one deity, Ieosus Christos, who became Jesus Christ after the letter “J” was invented in the 1500’s. They added the mythological abilities of Osiris, Mithra, and Horus to make him supernatural. There is absolutely zero proof of Jesus before 325 AD. Granted that people were illiterate back then but surely someone could have painted one of his alleged miracles.
Even to say that Jesus was “born” on Christmas day has been refuted by many Christians saying that it would be impossible for the Jesus story to be factual because shepherds weren’t in the fields in December. So if his birthday is a lie, how can anything else be factual?
Even the beginning of the bible starts out with a lie. There are 4 different blood types (A,B,AB, and O) and 2 different Rh values (+ and -). It’s IMPOSSIBLE to get 4 different blood types and 2 different Rh values from Adam and Eve, so how did we all get here and why is there so much diversity in us?
The Noah’s ark story is also hot air and BS. How did Noah get animals that weren’t indigenous to his area, such as penguins and sea lions? Did he also bring 2 hispanics, 2 blacks, 2 chinese, 2 mexicans, etc…?
Outside of the Jesus fable, keep up the god work waking people up. I hope someday you’ll do your homework on Jesus, although many people aren’t ready for the truth. A good starting place would be Zeitgeist and Mithra, who was one of the MANY deities who preceded Jesus who was born to a virgin mother, died on a cross and was resurrected,, but it goes much deeper than any of this.
Lastly, one doesn’t need to be religious in order to be moral. In my opinion, ALL religious texts should be 4 words long: “LOVE EVERYONE. RESPECT EVERYTHING.”
As a believer in YHWH, His word, and His Son, my faith rests on the teachings of Yahshua, the apostles, and the OT prophets.
You quoted many church leaders such as Polycarp and Justin Martyr. All of those people you quoted were influenced by the teachings of Philo, and far too much. Their claims that the Son of God is the Word of God are unbiblical and come from Plato. Philo was considered Plato 2.0. Philo brought Platonic, Babylonian, Hellenistic, Greek, and pagan philosophy into Christianity. Philo taught this whole false and unbiblical notion that the LOGOS of YHWH is another god in a trinity of gods. The Bible teaches that the LOGOS of YHWH is His possession, not a person and not another God. The LOGOS of YHWH is His Divine plan, His words used to express it, and His spoken word by which he brings His plans into existence. Yahshua is given the title ‘LOGOS of YHWH’ one time only in Revelation. We don’t build our doctrine of Messiah on one reference to a title. Yahshua also has the title ‘Lamb of God’, does that mean he is a literal lamb too? Yahshua is not the literal LOGOS of YHWH. Yahshua spoke not his own LOGOS, but rather the words (LOGOS) that belonged to his FATHER. The words (LOGOS) his Father gave him to speak.
John 1:1 says:
In the beginning was the logos, and the logos was with YHWH, and the logos was divine.
For the Greek substantive use of “theos” meaning “divine” instead of “God” see the W. E. Vine “Expository Dictionary of NT Words”, Dana & Mantey’s “A Manual Grammar of the Greek NT”, and Moffatt’s translation.
The logos was with YHWH and the logos was divine because it is his divine plan and his possession.
The Greek word “theos” without the definite article “ho” is translated “divine” according to the context. Nothing in the context indicates YHWH’s logos is a divinely appointed god, king, lord, judge, magistrate, master, etc.. John is not referring to a lesser god called the logos. The subject is YHWH’s logos, therefore, “theos” is properly translated using the word “divine.”
John does not say in the beginning was Yahshua. It is improper to take the begotten Yahshua out of John 1:14, insert him into John 1:1-5, and claim Yahshua is the logos and therefore God because GOD IS NOT A BEGOTTEN AND BORN BEING. Why so many scholars miss this Biblical fact is perplexing. If John wanted to say “in the beginning was Yahshua” he would have. There is no Yahshua in John 1:1-5. Philo read that in, and many early Church fathers bought the lie hook line and sinker. John 1:1-18 is quoted in defence of the trinity more often than any other scripture, and it is built on reading in meaning that John never intended.
The LOGOS became flesh, not the other way around. It means YHWH’s plan to raise up a Messiah from among the people of Israel come to fruition, came into concretion, by the power and plans YHWH prepared in advance. Before a builder builds anything he begins with a thought and plan in his MIND. The meaning of LOGOS in John’s day was: a word, a plan, a work of art, and the thoughts behind the words, plans, or work of art. Yahshua was a thought in the mind of YHWH before the earth was made. Hence Yahshua existed only in YAH’s foreknowledge and he was predestined before the earth was made. There is no preexistent Yahshua in the Bible. He did not exist as a god in Heaven, enter into MAry’s womb, and take on human flesh. The incarnation is pure heresy. Yahshua was BEGOTTEN and BORN as a result of YAH’s divine plan and act of procreation through His LOGOS by which all things come into being. Deuteronomy 18:18 is fulfilled in the procreation of Jesus and his growth in stature as the human Messiah, and proof that Yahshua is not a preexistent coequal deity.
Yahshua, in his post resurrection glorified spirit body and exalted position in heaven, is a god above all other gods in heaven, with the exception of YHWH who exalted Yahshua.

JESUS IS GOD EVEN THOMAS WHO DENIED THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS BELIEVED THAT JESUS IS LORD AND GOD BY SAYING “MY LORD AND MY GOD” BUT JESUS DID NOT REBUKE HIM THAT HE WAS NOT GOD. I BELIEVE IN ONE GOD THE TRINITY.
JESUS IS LORD AND GOD EVEN THOMAS WHO DENIED THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS BELIEVE THAT BY SAYING “MY LORD AND MY GOD” WHY DID JESUS NOT REBUKE THOMAS THAT HE WAS NOT GOD BUT LORD ONLY?
