Dr. Ehrman joins us to discuss his brand new book Did Jesus Exist? The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth.

We’ll talk about the arguments of the mythicists that say Jesus never existed and about the methodology Jesus historians use to say that he did, and what they believe he said and did during his life.

Dr. Bart Ehrman is the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A scholar of the New Testament, he has both a Masters of Divinity and Ph.D from Princeton Theological Seminary where he received magna cum laude honors. He has written numerous scholarly and popular level books on the New Testament, early Christianity and the question of the historical Jesus (HJ). His popular level books are eminently readable introductions to the field of New Testament studies and HJ scholarship. Misquoting Jesus, Lost Christianities, and Jesus: Apocalyptic Prophet of the New Millennium are particularly well recommended.
