A Response To Bart Ehrman: Craig Evans On How God Became Jesus

Dr. Bart Ehrman is arguably the most popular critic of the Christian view of Jesus in our culture today. His recent book, “How Jesus Became God”, attempts to show that the notion of Jesus being God does not accurately represent the historical Jesus but is a later legend fabricated by misguided Christians.

Dr. Craig Evans’ book “How God became Jesus” gives an intelligent rebuttal to Dr. Bart Ehrman’s book “How Jesus Became God” which states that Jesus is not divine.

Dr. Craig Evans strongly disagrees with the evidences that Dr. Ehrman gives. In the Jewish setting, you don’t expect people to equate themselves with God like how Jesus did.

Investigating Bart Ehrman’s Top Ten Troublesome Bible Verses

from Stand to Reason

On the final page of the paperback edition of Misquoting Jesus, Bart Ehrman famously listed the “Top Ten Verses That Were Not Originally in the New Testament.” In an effort to discredit the reliability of the New Testament text, Ehrman offered this list to demonstrate the existence of many late insertions in the text. He found this reality troubling as a young man, and eventually walked away from his Christian faith as a result:

“The Bible began to appear to me as a very human book. Just as human scribes had copied, and changed, the texts of scripture, so too had human authors originally written the texts of scripture. This was a human book from beginning to end.” (from Misquoting Jesus)

Let’s take a look at Ehrman’s list of troublesome verses and examine how they impact the reliability of the New Testament text:

Did Jesus Claim to be God? A Response to Bart Ehrman (Part 3)

from canon fodder blog

My name is GodNote:  This is the third installment of a series of blog posts reviewing Bart Ehrman’s new book, How Jesus Became God–The Exaltation of a Jewish Preacher from Galilee(HarperOne, 2014). For the prior post see here and here.

Not surprisingly, one of the major tenets in Ehrman’s argument is that Jesus never considered himself to be God, nor ever claimed to be God. In order to make his case, Ehrman summarizes his arguments from his book, Jesus: Apocalyptic Prophet of the New Millennium (Oxford, 2001), and says that Jesus just viewed himself as an apocalyptic prophet who was ushering in the Kingdom of God (basically Albert Schweitzer redivivus).

Here Ehrman adopts what he regards as the standard methodologies of modern critical scholarship, including the criteria of authenticity (and even the controversial and oft-debated criteria of dissimilarity). Of course, the upshot of Ehrman’s reconstruction of the historical Jesus is that any statements that might sound like a claim to divinity are conveniently dismissed as unhistorical.  So, not surprisingly, the claims of Jesus in the Gospel of John are considered “not part of the historical record of what Jesus actually said” (125).  In addition, Ehrman refuses to allow any statement where Jesus identifies himself as the “Son of Man.”
