  • "Addresses the issue of what the New Testament actually teaches-- and it's not what most people think."@en
  • "This work addresses the issue of what the New Testament actually teaches, and it's not what most people think. The author, a Bible expert demonstrates that the New Testament is riddled with contradictory views about who Jesus was and the significance of his life. He reveals that many of the books were written in the names of the apostles by Christians living decades later, and that central Christian doctrines were the inventions of still later theologians. Although this has been the standard and widespread view of scholars for two centuries, most people have never learned of it."
  • "Bible expert Bart Ehrman skillfully demonstrates that the New Testament is riddled with contradictory views about who Jesus was and the significance of his life. Ehrman reveals that many of the books were written in the names of the apostles by Christians living decades later, and that central Christian doctrines were the inventions of still later theologians. Although this has been the standard and widespread view of scholars for two centuries, most people have never learned of it."
  • "Examines contradictions and discrepancies that come to light when the New Testament is studied from a historical perspective, including varying views of Jesus and salvation and forgeries in the names of the apostles."@en

  • "Picking up where Bible expert Bart Ehrman's New York Times bestseller Misquoting Jesus left off, Jesus, Interrupted addresses the larger issue of what the New Testament actually teaches'and it's not what most people think. Here Ehrman reveals what scholars have unearthed: -The authors of the New Testament have diverging views about who Jesus was and how salvation works -The New Testament contains books that were forged in the names of the apostles by Christian writers who lived decades later -Jesus, Paul, Matthew, and John all represented fundamentally different religions -Established Christian doctrines'such as the suffering messiah, the divinity of Jesus, and the trinity'were the inventions of still later theologians These are not idiosyncratic perspectives of just one modern scholar. As Ehrman skillfully demonstrates, they have been the standard and widespread views of critical scholars across a full spectrum of denominations and traditions. Why is it most people have never heard such things' This is the book that pastors, educators, and anyone interested in the Bible have been waiting for'a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we face when attempting to reconstruct the life and message of Jesus."@en
