Marshon, Jesus, Dr Bart Ehrman discussed on Coffee And A Book
And the the thing that martian was was kind of up on is that he felt like when he looked at the teachings of jesus he thought that that was in contradiction with what he read about god in the old testament and so he actually believed that the god of the old testament and the god of the new testament were actually two different deities and so with.

Because we don't have the originals. And i think he did really well in explaining why we can trust what the new testament says. How how did you contrast progressive christianity with the new testament. What are some of those differences. Well one of the big issues in the class. That i was in was i was.
