Summary[ edit ] Ehrman recounts his personal experience with the study of the Bible and textual criticism. He summarizes the history of textual criticism, from the works of Desiderius Erasmus to the present. The book describes an early Christian environment in which the books that would later compose the New Testament were copied by hand, mostly by Christian amateurs. Ehrman concludes that various early scribes altered the New Testament texts in order to de-emphasize the role of women in the early church, to unify and harmonize the different portrayals of Jesus in the four gospels, and to oppose certain heresies such as Adoptionism. Reviews and reception[ edit ] Alex Beam of the Boston Globe, wrote that the book is "a series of dramatic revelations for the ignorant", and that "Ehrman notes that there have been a lot of changes to the Bible in the past 2, years. I don't want to come between Mr.
Misleading-he should have used primary resources Ok, I get that he used a few primary resources, but he should never have palled-up with Dan Brown's claim that Constantine had anything to do with forming the New Testament Canon.
Rather the Council created the Nicaean Creed and twenty Canons, which were rules about church administration.

One of the leading Biblical scholar and historian Professor Ehrman clearly presents how the New Testament was altered over the ages, by whom and for what purposes. Even the Christian theologians admit that the New Testament we have today is not in its original form..
How, in that case, it can be claimed that it is an inspiration from God? Professor Ehrman successfully refutes these allegations with sound evidences.
This book is a must for everyone who wants to know the Truth about the New Testament. Mithrasrising - favorite favorite favorite favorite - December 13, Subject: Re Apeism is Stupid. I'll tell you what's "stupid. It's littered with contradictions which the blind are happy to ignore. It was cobbled together hundreds of years after the "death," of Jesus, who I'm not aware dictated it to anybody at the time of his life, for very political reasons and overseen by one of the most murderous Emperors Rome had ever seen, who made the Cult into an official State Religion and that's the only reason it spread through the Roman Empire and has been passed down to us in the badly translated form we have today.
That's before we get into all of the ideas it filched from previous pagan religions all of which can be found by a small amount of research into Horus, Buddha, Dinonysus, Osiris, Mithras and Krishna. A number of textual variants, accidental and intentional, are discussed in this enthralling text.
Ehrman Bart Ehrman is one of North Americas leading textual critics today. As a teacher and writer, he is logical, witty, provocative.
Ehrman is the author of more than twenty books, including the New York Times bestselling Misquoting Jesus. Ehrman is the James A. Numerous examples are given of parts of the Bible being changed the last six verses of Mark being added is my favourite and a clear candidate for the most remarkable example so as to make them easier to understand.
The book ends with a wonderful explanation of the differences between the four Gospels and makes a compelling argument for why they cannot be read as if they were one book that need to be read to tell the one story, but rather four different tellings of the one story.
It is not the similarities that are important in these stories, but their differences and what these differences mean is what is vitally important. He spends much time addressing the differences between Mark and Luke — particularly the passion and the remarkably different portrayals of Jesus in these two Gospels.
For this stuff alone the book is worth reading. He also quotes some terribly interesting material regarding the transcription and duplication of the early manuscripts. To be honest, it is hard to imagine that this book survived its origins at all.
He quotes one person who is charged with producing a copy of the New Testament who describes how he had to transcribe it letter by letter, given he could not read the language the New Testament he was transcribing was written in.
Repeatedly we are told that if you compare the earliest manuscripts of the New Testament you will find that there are more differences between them than there are words in the New Testament.
A nice line.
