Craig Evans vs. Bart Ehrman Debate
Before Easter 2010 NT scholars Craig Evans and Bart Ehrman debated the question, Does the New Testament Misquote Jesus?
The link takes you to audio and video of the event.
They cover these seven questions:
- Are the gospels historically reliable?
- Do the gospels accurately preserve the teachings of Jesus Christ?
- Do the gospels accurately preserve the activities of Jesus Christ?
- Do the gospels contain eyewitness tradition?
- Do archaeologists and historians use the gospels as sources?
- Have the gospels been accurately preserved done through the centuries
- Do scribal errors and textual variants significantly impact any teaching of Jesus or any important Christian teaching?
Here is a running summary of the debate.
