Bart Ehrman is back on the podcast talking about his newest book Did Jesus Exist? Don’t worry the answer is YES! In the conversation Ehrman responds to the popular nonsense of the ‘mythicists’ who attempt to argue Jesus didn’t exist. Like Dan Brown’s conspiracy theory, the mythicists may get some followers online but they don’t have much of an intellectual case and this top notch atheist leaning New Testament scholar is here to set them straight. Of course that was just part of the conversation. We also discuss the apocalypticism of Jesus, Holy Week, fundamentalism, plays the ‘name game’ with NT Scholars and then answer Jay Bakker’s question.
It was a real pleasure to talk with Ehrman and we hope you enjoy it and share the Brew!
