How did the Bible come to be? Canon vs. Cannon-
The Ebionites were an heretical sect with a belief system that parallels that of Grace School of the Bible's Richard Jordan of Shorewood Bible Church. (Shorewood's founder, J. C. O'Hair, must be spinning in his grave.)
The Gospel of the Ebionites is comprised of seven manuscript fragments quoted by Irenaeus (140-
Pastor Richard Jordan teaches that Jesus Christ had no deity attributes during His earthly ministry.
Pastor Richard Jordan teaches of Jesus Christ, that "He’s living in total dependence even today. Even now, in what God the Father communicated to him." Pastor Richard Jordan's Christ is either a lesser god or no god at all.
"Adoptionism" always involves a distinction between Christ before and after His baptism, just as you see with the Ebionites and just as you hear from Pastor Richard Jordan.
Pastor Jordan teaches that the first time Jesus Christ knew He was the Son of God was when, at age 30, Christ was baptized by John and that is when God the Father informed Him that: "Thou art my beloved Son..."

I have a dumb question about the gospels. A lot of discussion has revolved around the fact that Matthew, Mark, Luke and John didn’t preach the cross. My question is: How could they?”
Here is the real question: is there more than one gospel in the Bible? That’s what the fuss is really all about. Clearly the disciples had been preaching a gospel that did not involve the cross and we preach a gospel that is all about the cross. What people want to do is read Paul’s information back into the gospels, which is deceitful and dangerous.
