Entirely correct. The information brought forward by Bart Ehrman in ‘Jesus Interrupted’ is nothing new. That is the exact point that he makes in this book. For over 200 years now, Theologians have known about the horizontal, critical-historical interpretations of the bible that expose it’s fraudulent, conflicting, nature and content.
Every mainstream divinity school in the world today teaches this. Modern ministers, pastors and priests, of course, do not teach this to their congregations, thus people like Clay and Wahoo continue on with their ignorance about the bible and it’s supposed ‘truths’
It is the biggest and oldest propangada program in human history, and almost all educated clergy people know it.
Wahoo, I do not believe you read this book and if you did, you did not understand it. Nothing in this book was Bart Ehrmans OPINION. He states this over and over. It is commonly accepted historical knowledge.
Clay, will not have the courage to read any of Ehrmans work.
I have read quite a lot of Ehrman - even his works from 10 years ago. What is OPINION is that there was an orthodox coverup. The facts are that there are manuscript differences - many of them. But most are very minor and no important Christian doctrine is challenged by them.
Pretty much all experts in this area have bias. Ehrman is as biased as his Christian counterparts, like Dan Eallace, Darrell Bock, Craig Evans, etc.
I have read all the arguments and choose to believe. You (I assume) have read them and have chosen not to believe. As best as I can tell the only difference is that you claim that your position (and your experts) is unbiased, which I dispute.
