Discussion of the Best News in the World, the Gospel of Jesus, and related topics
Archaeology is solidifying the reliability the canon of New Testament Letters and Gospels
with every finding.
Craig Bloomberg has studied and written extensively on the reliability of the New Testament manuscripts. See the list of 59 facts about the Gospel of John which are shown to be historically probably by author Craig Bloomberg.
Here are just some of the topics we had going in 2011 where there were more than just a blog about a topic. Feel free to peruse the blog and search all you like.
This video is not part of the Ehrman project but I thought that Bezel (bezel333 on youtube) sums up on some critical aspects of what Dr. Ehrman teaches.
Wow, now Jesus is taking heat for all the censuses taken in the early 1st Century.
With no scripture in place, what controlled doctrine in the 1st century?
Here is Dr. Darrell Bock on how the gospels and letters of the New Testament came together. Dr. Bock provides context and some of the important points related to how we know these manuscripts contain great and correct doctrine and data regarding the life and teachings of Jesus. Most of these critical points, people like Crossan, Spong, and Ehrman simply skip or ignore.
Against here is a great synopsis by Dr. Kruger. Great job Dr. Kruger!!!
There is such good information and data out there about how the Bible was put down in ink originally that I feel it is worth sharing with a larger audience.
So, I should start this sequence with a big thank you to Dr. Bart Ehrman. Thank you Dr. Ehrman for making the Ehrman Project series possible and we will be through embedding the videos here exploring some of the concepts of how the words on the pages of the Greek and Hebrew came to us. It is so facinating. Please listen and critique as you like. There is much to think about in these short but information packed videos. All of these are great men who are speaking. I certainly respect all of them.
