Thank you for the info in your previous post, I've been impressed with Ehrman's writing, read 9 or 10 of his books, but not Jesus: Apocalyptic Prophet of the New Millennium (it's on the list). As you say, they make so much sense, and he was an Evangelical literalist at the start of his education, his biases slowly eaten away as he got deeper into his studies of the myriad manuscripts and the social, cultural, and religious context of the era.

Your prescience is in evidence, shit, I've been away and this thread exploded, I hope it's not all my fault. I will try to join the discussion later, after getting through the subsequent posts here and some other threads I am attempting to track. Soon, this will be "Did Jesus Exist? Part XIII.
