    YHWH and Jehovah: Same? Different? Where's Jehovah Come From?

    YHWH and Jehovah: Same? Different? Where's Jehovah Come From?

    Dr. Ehrman stresses Paul's concept of bodily resurrection rather than just the resurrection of the soul.
    I received a number of comments on my recent posts about whether Jesus was Yahweh (Hebrew: YHWH) in traditional Christian thinking/theology.  And a number of people have wanted further explanation of the name.  In particular: how does it relate to "Jehovah"?  In fact, where does the name "Jehovah" come from?   And is it in the New Testament?

    Would I Be Personally Upset if the Mythicists Were Right (That Jesus Never Existed)? When Did Jesus Die? Dating Jesus' Death by the Earthquake

    Dr. Ehrman might be "energized" if the mythicists were proven right, but his own rigorous investigation tells him that Jesus really existed.
    Bart criticizes scientists who claim to have found the year of Jesus' crucifixion, pointing out they have no appreciation of the symbolism in Matthew.

Must-listen for anyone interested in the Bible

If you’re interested in the Bible, early Christianity, the historical Jesus, or the early Christian church this is a must-listen. The scholarship of Dr. Ehrman is unparalleled and refreshing. He has a way of connecting the dots between history and theology and theological developments In the early church that is both fascinating and challenging.

Interesting

This is a fascinating, interesting, and informative blog turned podcast. I don’t have the time I’d like to read much of the actual blog posts, but it’s a happy medium.
I found Bart Ehrman blog through , The History in the Bible Podcast > Bart Ehrman Podcast > Blog. Thanks!

More Content, Less Blog Promoting

I would enjoy this podcast more if less time was spent directing listeners to the blog. I listen to podcasts while I’m working and don’t have the time to sit down and read lengthy blog posts... The topics presented are fascinating, but I listen to podcasts for the sake of being able to multi-task. Overall, the information being given is very good and insightful. I wish there was more information in each episode.
