Bart Ehrman Debates Old Testament Scholar on Bible’s Treatment of Suffering

This was an interesting debate. Bart Ehrman, though a non-believer, has all of a preacher’s cadences and appeals to the Bible to make his points, so it is very much a back and forth that feels like it’s taking place on the same turf with the same basic weapons. It’s interesting to see how this debate about the problem of evil works out as taking place confined to the specific question of the Bible and its treatments of suffering. His opponent, Michael Brown, an Old Testament scholar and “Messianic Jewish apologist”, makes truly dreadful arguments throughout.
