Ben Witherington defuses Ehrman

June 21, 2009

Lavra Dome by Stuck in CustomsBart Ehrman’s book “Misquoting Jesus” has started to be quoted on message boards across the internet. What he says is not all that new, and in fact, I’m reading a lot of the same things – although without the cries of doom and seemingly fitting just nicely with a mature view of Christianity – in a standard textbook. On the last week’s edition of Stand to Reason, Ben Witherington III respectfully takes down Bart Ehrman a peg or two and restores some balance.

The podcast is here.

Thank you to Stuck in Customs for the image.
