Ben Witherington interview with Bart Ehrman

Conservative NT scholar Ben Witherington recently interviewed not-so-conservative NT scholar Bart Ehrman on the issue of whether Jesus actually existed. You may know that in the last few years a small group of skeptics has challenged the very existence of Jesus of Nazareth. I think you will enjoy these interviews (there are seven posts in all), not because you will agree with everything Ehrman says - you won't. But I think you will enjoy them because because you will see how strong the historical testimony is about Jesus, even as understood by a scholar as hostile to traditional Christianity as Ehrman.
