Another Ehrman Round-Up
June 30, 2014
James F. McGrath
I am hoping to read Bart Ehrman's recent book, How Jesus Became God, before the end of the summer. In the mean time, here is a round up of some recent blogging about it.
Ehrman shared some things that surprised him as he worked on the book, and a paper he gave about Brian and the apocalyptic Jesus plus part two and part three. Andrew Perriman also reflected on Ehrman's book and Life Of Brian.
Ken Schenck posted his reviews of chapter 4, chapter 5, and chapter 6.
The quote which Jim Spinti shared seemed to me to equally make the point that criticisms of the scholarly viewpoint Ehrman represents have not changed much either.
Of related interest, Andrew Perriman has been blogging a lot lately about topics such as the prediction that some would not die before Jesus' Parousia, Beker on Paul and apocalyptic, and other thoughts about Gehenna, judgment, and hell. See too Richard Beck's post about preterism.
