BART EHRMAN

  • Is the Bible inaccurate in some of the things that it says Jesus said? If so, how do we know that it's not inaccurate in lots of things? If it is inaccurate in lots of things, what makes us think we can trust it?
  • He never calls himself God in Mathew, Mark or Luke (16:30) earliest gospels
  • If you read the gospel of John, you don't learn who Jesus said he was, you learn who John said he was. (18:30)
  • In Mark, Jesus is silent until the end and he only My God My God why have you foresaken me? and he dies.(26:30) In Luke, he is not silent. he says Father forgive them for they don't know what they are doing. Rather than crying out my God my God...he says into your hands I commend my spirit. (John 19, Mark 15)
