Bible Scholar and Author of 'Misquoting Jesus' Speaks on the Contradictions and Misinterpretations in the Bible
This lecture is well worth the listen if you've got some extra time. I love listening to lectures, audiobooks and music while I'm in the studio working on art. My hands and eyes are busy with art, but I can listen to things all day long. I am considering buying Ehrman's more recent 2010 book called Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don't Know About Them)
