A Reply to Bart Ehrman’s Defense of Jesus, Interrupted on the MythVision Podcast

JONATHAN MCLATCHIE May 24, 2021 Nearly a year ago, I published a series of three articles in which I reviewed sections of Bart Ehrman’s book Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don’t Know About Them). If you have not read those articles already, you can find them at the links […]

Bart Ehrman and the Trinity Pt. 3

In this third part of my discussion (https://answeringislamblog.wordpress.com/2019/01/29/bart-ehrman-and-the-trinity-pt-2/; https://answeringallah.com/bart-ehrman-and-the-trinity-pt-2/, I am going to end the series by providing the scriptural data supporting the divine Personhood of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus, John’s Gospel and the Names of Allah

In light of my recent series of posts on Bart D. Ehrman and the Trinity (https://bloggingtheology2.com/2019/01/28/guest-article-by-sam-shamoun-bart-ehrman-and-the-trinity/; https://answeringallah.com/bart-ehrman-and-the-trinity-pt-1/), where I focused primarily on the witness of John to the essential Deity of Christ, I’ve decided to take this a step further by showing how Jesus ascribes to his very own Person the very functions and titles, […]

Bart Ehrman and the Trinity Pt. 1

Bart D. Ehrman is in my estimation one of the leading and most influential scholars of the Greek New Testament living today.

More importantly, despite his rejection of […]

Will the Real Bart Ehrman Please Stand Up? Pt. 2

As we stated at the conclusion of the first part of our discussion https://answeringallah.com/will-the-real-bart-ehrman-please-stand-up-pt-1/, Ehrman believes that certain verses in the NT identify the Lord Jesus as the human manifestation of the Angel of the LORD, a divine figure that appears quite often in the Hebrew Bible. Ehrman believes that this is the view of […]
