A couple of revelations this week.
I have several books by Bart Ehrman .Generally I think they're pretty good. Except for "Did Jesu Exist?" in which he agues the affirmative.
This week I found a debate on Youtube "Did Jesus Exist?" with Robert Price, Ehrman arguing the positive. Interesting stuff, but it has made me question Ehrman's intellectual honesty. Haven't finished watching it yet, will persevere.
Had only heard of Richard Carrier in passing . Found his lecture "Did Jesu Even Exist?" He begins by demolishing current methodologies used for establishing the authenticity of ancient texts. More fascinating stuff. Haven't watched all of this lecture yet either.
Such lectures and debates deserve my full attention, so I watch them in small bits.
I have posted this thread in the hope it may interest at least one other as much as it interests me. Apologies to those who are more erudite and for whom this is old news.
Have posted this in the Debate Room to avoid the usual idiocies of the apologists who find their way here.
