When did Jesus's followers first believe he was the Son of God?

This video is Part 18 of the 'Jesus Myths Volume 1' series.
The central claim of the Christian message is that Jesus is the Son of God. The last modern myth we want to look at in this series says that it took many years for people to start believing this. So how long did it take for Jesus's first followers to come to believe he was the Son of God?

Contributor to this video is:

  • Professor Larry Hurtado, University of Edinburgh, author of 'Lord Jesus Christ: devotion to Jesus in Earliest Christianity'.
