How Did Jesus Become God? Video of the Bart Ehrman and Michael Bird Debate

How Did Jesus Become God? Video of the Bart Ehrman and Michael Bird Debate February 13, 2016

Deane Galbraith shared the above video of the recent debate between Bart Ehrman and Michael Bird about Christology in the New Testament.

I'm still planning to blog my way through the Christology of Mark's Gospel, but I haven't managed to do so yet. And so, in the meantime, here's a round-up of the blogging on that topic that has taken place since the last time I posted on this topic:

The Jesus Blog had several posts on the topic, including one on whether Markan Christology is “low, underdeveloped, or understated,” another on whether Christology is the best category to use in this discussion, and a question posed to James Crossley by a blog reader.

Mike Kok blogged about Mark's view of Jesus' identity, and the story of Jesus' power over the sea.

Matthew Montonini asked whether the divinity of Jesus in Mark is in the eye of the beholder rather than what the text explicitly says. And yet in another post today he argues that Mark depicts Jesus' pronouncement of forgiveness of sin to imply his divinity (ignoring the fact that the Gospel of Matthew, Mark's earliest interpreter, does not understand it that way).

And a reader of my blog began blogging his way through the Gospel of Mark and its Christology.

I hope the above will provide you with enough to tide you over until I get around to blogging my way through the Christology of the Gospel of Mark myself here on this blog!
