Religion Soup: Ehrman/Evans Debate, Night 1
Religion Soup: Ehrman/Evans Debate, Night 2
Thoughts: I think that Bart Ehrman’s criticisms of the historicity of the New Testament in the first video are fascinating. I applaud him for bringing the topics under discussion into the public arena in the form of these and other debates. Would the discussion have reached the public arena, and made it onto my computer screen if Dr. Ehrman had remained silent? Perhaps, but I suspect Ehrman’s works have forced Christian scholars such as Dr. Craig Evans and Dr. Dan Wallace and Dr. James White to address these issues face on, and this is of great benefit to those such as myself.
Other resources: Dr. Craig Blomberg has some really useful materials relating to these debates here:
