Rather than engaging in the kind of diplomatic language that is common among scholars, he dogmatically asserts his view as correct. There is virtually no interaction with opposing views. On the rare occasion when he might mention another viewpoint, it is dismissed quickly. It does not appear to occur to him that his students may be intelligent in their own right and have investigated the issue for themselves.
Those who write books critical of the Bible appear to be equally guilty.
This is especially true in the case of scholarly treatments of who scribes were and how they went about practicing their craft. Forged includes a discussion of the production of ancient documents, but Witherington notes that Ehrman seems to have given little thought to the role and duties of scribes in the ancient world.
In other words, he is concerned with texts, but not with how they were produced or by whom. He explains: I need to say from the outset and on first glance that there appears to be a rather large lacunae in the argument of this book, namely the failure to do this study after having studied in depth ancient scribal practices and the roles of scribes in producing ancient documents in ancient Israel.
As in nearly all of his other popular-level books, Ehrman explains some of the things he considers to be contradictions. But the manner in which Ehrman describes these difficulties leaves the reader with the impression that in the last 2, years of biblical studies no one has ever thought through the difficult texts of the New Testament.
To be sure, some of these problems are challenging though none is without an adequate answer , but Ehrman leaves the impression that the only people who believe these supposed contradictions can be solved are those with a pre-commitment to biblical inerrancy.
Critics can accept the supposed reality of contradictions all too quickly, and Ehrman proves himself no exception.
My response to such people is that they need to look not only at the results of scholarship [as I lay them out in my books] but also at the evidence that makes these results convincing to scholars of all sorts of persuasions, Christian and non-Christian alike. In reality, numerous scholars disagree with him—not to mention the fact that the majority of his conclusions are simply false, regardless of the opinions of scholars.
He consistently claims that his view is that of the majority, although he provides no defense of this assertion, nor does he point to other scholars who share his views. Instead, he engages in the curious habit of referring back to his own work rather than that of the mass of unnamed experts who allegedly agree with him.
But is it possible that the problem is worse than that—that the Bible actually contains lies? But good Christian scholars of the Bible, including the top Protestant and Catholic scholars of America, will tell you that the Bible is full of lies, even if they refuse to use the term. And here is the truth: Many of the books of the New Testament were written by people who lied about their identity, claiming to be a famous apostle—Peter, Paul or James—knowing full well they were someone else.
In modern parlance, that is a lie, and a book written by someone who lies about his identity is a forgery b. According to Ehrman, many scholars are ministers and professors who have to serve the needs of their clientele see Ehrman, , pp.
Professors really do know the truth, Ehrman claims, but they cannot be honest about it, because they largely teach in colleges, seminaries, and divinity schools.
They cannot denigrate the very texts they are teaching to Christian students without suffering repercussions from their constituency. That the latter group demonstrates little discernable awareness of the former is somewhat ironic.
In an interview on Salon. Even so, those on the outside with little knowledge of the subject often make critical errors in their assessment of the situation.
Take a hike. If the so-called expert of this book would read Matthew 24 and other prophecies for the end times, he would learn that Jesus never taught they were living during the generation of His 2nd Coming, because of all the prophecies that must be fulfilled first The generation that sees the budding of the fig tree Matthew , or the rebirth of Israel May 14, will see Jesus' 2nd Coming.
We are living in the End Times as described by Jesus and the prophets. Dump the false religion of Islam and its false god,"Allah", and receive and believe in the name of Jesus, God's only Son John , whom alone can wash away our sins Romans John Also, the author loves to use the term "apologie" instead of "apologetics" when describing the Christian's activities of giving a explanation of alleged discrepancies of the Holy Bible.
Christians never need to give an apology for God's inerrant Word! We do need to give reasons to believe, and that process is called,"apologetics", NOT apologies. Merry Christmas
