Just pass the below commands to see the diff between two commands without having the commits in between

git diff <commit_id1> <commit_id2> > <name>

git apply <name>

This will show you the difference but without the commits in between

For example: 

git diff 0da94be  59ff30c > my.patch

git apply my.patch

Use can use the following:

git diff <a-commit> <another-commit> path


git diff commit1 commit2 config/routes.rb

It will show the difference between that file between those commits.
