  • says the Bible contradicts itself, so Jonah swallowed the whale!? Oh, please!
  • scholars have known for a long time that
    • books written by people who didn't write them
  • standard doctrines of Christianity
    • divitinity of christ
    • trinity
  • Gospel of John
    • Jesus
  • Saint Peter
  • he knows the early Jews better than the early Jews
  • the early interpretation of Jesus is the Jews' fault
  • did not see Jesus as a divine being, but as a human being
  • if it talks like a duck, walks like a duck and raises the dead like a duck ...
  • Jesus is portrayed as a human in early Christianity
    • Matthew, Mark, Luke and John (only divine in John)
  • God is not a fan of puns
    • one of the seven deadly sins
  • has a problem with conflicting versions of Jesus' crucifixion
    • he is nitpicking
  • in Mark he doesn't know why
    • why hath thou forsaken me?
  • in Luke not in agony, more concerned with the people watching
    • father into your hands
  • Dr. Colbert tells
    • 4 different blind men stumble around the jungle and fall into a pit, where an elephant has already fallen
      • they all declare the elephant to be different than the others; one thinks it's a wall, another thinks it's a tree, the third thinks it's a snake and the last one thinks it's a spear
  • Ehrman missed the point that Jesus is an elephant and each of the 4 men can only see part of Him
