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.

I love Bart Ehrman. As a spiritual person myself, I also appreciate unfiltered history. Thanks Bart!

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.
