A lecture with Dr Ehrman

From Messiah to God

the video speaks for itself...

skip to 1:25 though

IF you happen to have 35 mins to watch

IF you're not interested in the topic/video.... Why post a reply?

The Alpha and Omega did not send someone down to a Marble that for all intensive purposes is a spec of dust on the cosmic scale to die for our presumed sins.

I believe there is a God. However, I doubt said creator much cares about what you do on the daily. If it was all part of his "Plan", then it REALLY does not matter, does it.

It's a question, I know it can be baffling but
Really, so what, another opinion of someone about something pretty obvious
It's nothing new as opinions go

You need to call me a fundie, I just asked so what, did I tread on your toes

So what, Erhman has just told us something that's been around for a couple of thousand years, nothing new in that video

So again, so what, what's your point

Apparently, irrespective
Why should I care, why do I want to listen to someone waffle on about what I assume is Marcionism

Or someone confused by the mystery of Trinity

Erhman is just amazing..

He has changed my view o. Countless things..


His spiel on adoptions is just facinating!!!


The way how he explains that in Roman culture adopted kids were more important than biological children. But after that shifted Christians created the Virgin birth narrative..



I have literally watched everything I can find on erhman..

Because he is the best educated New Testament scholar who gives speeches and debates. Maybe? Lol..

I know, I know most Christians would rather people ignore history and what we can learn from the manuscripts that survive, but a lot of us would like to know the real truth behind it all.

Because if you want the truth about first century Christianity. You go to erhman..


If you want to feel all warm and fuzzy you go to a fundamentalist.. lol.

If you want good replies, you ought to post a good summary of the video. All the effort you put into it was "The video speaks for itself." Literally no summary, not even a listing, of the topics or points covered in the video. So I don't think you have any reason to take issue with any of the replies so far.

He hates erhman because he is a fundamentalist and erhman AND HISTORY poop all over the desired narrative of the fundamentalists..


He would rather have discussions where the Bible is infallible and everyone should be converting to modern , constantly changing fundamentalist evangelical Christianity.

Good call..

But Erhman is super prolific and anyone familiar with his work can take off having discussions from there lol.. but for those unfamiliar with Ehrman. I agree it’s way too little info to start talking lol.

Because your average Christian has no idea about erhman’s work..


If they did Christianity has a mass exodus over night..
