Shaffer Lectures 1 of 3 - Christ Come in the Flesh

For the first time since Bart's delivery between October 12-14, 2004, the three part lecture from the Yale University Convocation 2004 has been retrieved from Yale's video archives, and edited for Bart's readers. Almost three hours of lectures include, Christ Come in the Flesh, Christ The Divine Man, and Christ Against the Jews. The central theme of the Kent Shaffer Lectures was Christ in the Early Christian Tradition: Texts Disputed and Apocryphal.

Jesus Christ: The Misunderstood Saviour - Lecture by Stephan Hoeller

After 2000 years, the mission of Christ is still unfulfilled and misapprehended. Can Gnostic understanding help Christ to be spiritually reborn today?
-The Gospel of Thomas:


* Various Christian traditions and denominations have spawned over time. Several different theories and claims have been postulated by various (pseudo-)historians, scholars, theologians and conspiracy theory gurus concerning the figure of Jesus. It’s all quite a cacophonic mess.
I found this lecture quite interesting and clarifying In light of this modern day proliferation of different theories, interpretations and claims concerning the figure of Jesus, and the confusion this creates.
Theories and claims that concern questions like: was Jesus divine or was he human? Historical or mythological? Literal or metaphorical?

-Lecture available from

Galilee, Jesus, and Christology, First Shaffer Lecture

Christ in the Early Christian Tradition
Texts Disputed and Apocryphal

Bart D. Ehrman

Legends, Fictions, and the Manuscripts that Illustrate Christ's Story

September 22, 2011, The Getty Center

Illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages are significant for the literary texts they preserve. But they are also important, historically and culturally, for their illustrations of the life of Christ. These artistic representations tell tales of their own, and the visual stories are not always found in the corresponding texts. A careful examination of these images shows clearly and convincingly that medieval artists were not only familiar with the stories of the canonical Gospels, but also with many noncanonical apocryphal tales of Jesus. The apocryphal stories, in some instances, were understood to be Gospel truth on par with accounts found in Scripture. Bart D. Ehrman, the James A. Gray Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, explores both canonical and apocryphal narratives of Jesus's life.

Bart Ehrman From a Christian fundamentalist Pastor to Agnostic Atheist.

From a Christian fundamentalist Pastor to Agnostic Atheist.

This is a very good, eye opening, thought provoking, watch.
It last about an hour, but it is well worth the watching,
If you find subjects about the Bible, and Jesus, interesting.

Bart is being interviewed by A Christian theologian, for a Christian broadcast. This is not a video to say what you believe is rubbish, it is to make you think about what it is you believe and how much do you know. And to try and at least give you some insight, into what highly skilled experts that have studied the bible for a living, for many decades ,are saying about the Bible.

You will learn more in this hour long video, about the Bible,
than you have probably ever known, in all your life.

In the video Bart Ehrman talks about his beliefs now,
and what he use to believe.
He also answers the historical questions everyone has,
such as,
Did Jesus really exist?
Is the books in the bible authentic
and written by who they claim to be written by?
What are some of the things that didn't make it into the Bible?
And why didn't they?

He also talks about why he doesn't write a book on the Quran.
He speaks about his Christian wife, and his family, that are mostly Christians.He speaks about what every Pastor that studied in Bible school knows, but will not tell you, and why they don't tell you. And
Gay rights and women's roll in the church

Bart's expertise has been used to make documentaries for the History and the Discovery Channels, and he has been quoted as a source by many great thinking minds, such as the late Christopher Hitchens. He has written and edited over 30 books, including three college textbooks. He has also authored six New York Times bestsellers.

Bart Ehrman is a leading New Testament scholar focusing on textual criticism of the New Testament, the historical Jesus, and the development of early Christianity.

Bart is considered one of the leading expert scholars in his field worldwide. And that is by other scholars.

If you are the type of person that believes everything you hear or see,
If You're Not Stable Or Secure IN Your Faith,
THEN You Might Not Want To Watch This Video.
I will say that again
If you believe everything you hear or see,
If You're Not Stable Or Secure IN Your Faith,
THEN You Might Not Want To Watch This Video.

BUT If You Can Handle
Hearing Uncomfortable Things,
That the bible scholars know,
That Your Pastor won't tell you,
or talk about in church,
then you will learn a lot.
Prepare to be shocked.

Don't Say
I Didn't WARN YOU

If you watched the video please give me your comments
bellow.
I am interested in knowing in what other people have to say about some of the things Bart says in this video.

Christology as Theology: The Johannine Approach as a Challenge Then and Now

Jörg Frey, Professor of New Testament at the University of Zurich, gave the three-part Shaffer Lectures at Yale Divinity School. Frey spoke on “Theology and History in the Fourth Gospel.”

Fifty years after the release of J. L. Martyn’s influential study on History and Theology in the Fourth Gospel, Frey will take a reverse perspective: In John, the priority is not on history, but on theology. While Martyn had focused on the hypothetical reconstruction of the history of the Johannine community and its literature, Frey takes as his point of departure the challenging theological interpretation in the gospel narrative, in which all the earlier traditions are reconfigured and reshaped.

Professor of New Testament at the University of Zurich, Jörg Frey studies early Judaism and hermeneutics. He succeeded Martin Hengel as the managing editor of the monograph series Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament and is co-editor of the journal Early Christianity as well as editor of numerous thematic volumes. Frey has published extensively published in the fields of Johannine studies, Catholic Epistles, the Dead Sea Scrolls, early Christian apocrypha, and New Testament theology. His major publications include Die Johanneische Eschatologie (3 vols., Mohr Siebeck, 1997-2000); Die Herrlichkeit des Gekreuzigten: Studien zu den Johanneischen Schriften 1 (Mohr Siebeck, 2013; ET in preparation with Baylor University Press); Der Judasbrief und der Zweite Petrusbried (EVA, 2015; ET in preparation with Baylor University Press); and Von Jesus zur Neutestamentlichen Theologie. Kleine Schriften 2 (Mohr Siebeck, 2016).

The Shaffer Lectureship was established in 1929 by a gift from John C. Shaffer of Chicago, as a memorial to his son, Kent Shaffer, Ph.D. 1907, to provide lectures on the life, character, and teachings of Jesus. This series is given every second year, alternating with the Nathaniel W. Taylor lecture series.

EVOLUTION OF JESUS IN EARLY CHRISTIANITY

How beliefs concerning the divinity of Jesus, the Trinity, and the divine origins of the Bible itself are the results of both intentional and accidental alterations by scribes. He addresses questions about homosexuality as understood in Jesus' time and the holiday Christmas, among other topics.

NC Bookwatch: Lost Christianities

Bart D. Ehrman was guest on North Carolina Bookwatch hosted by D.G. Martin. The program that was aired on WHYY 08/29/2004, to discuss his book that had been recently released at that time called, Lost Christianities: The Battles for Scripture and the Faiths We Never Knew [Episode: 239]. In Lost Christianities and the program, Bart D. Ehrman offers a fascinating look at these early forms of Christianity and shows how they came to be suppressed, reformed, or forgotten. All of these groups insisted that they upheld the teachings of Jesus and his apostles, and they all possessed writings that bore out their claims, books reputedly produced by Jesus's own followers.

D. G. Martin is the host of UNC-TV’s “North Carolina Bookwatch,” who served in the U.S. Army’s Special Forces, a retired lawyer, politician, and university administrator.

Smithsonian Part Four - Constantine and the Christian Faith

Professor Bart D. Ehrman joins the Smithsonian Associates at the S. Dillon Ripley Center in Washington, DC on Saturday, February 10, 2018 - 9:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. The conversion of the Roman Empire to Christianity set in motion a transformation with little equal in the history of Western civilization. A movement that began within a small group of illiterate day-laborers in a remote corner of the empire took fire, and within four hundred years half the population of the empire had converted. Christianity became the official religion of Rome and, eventually, the most significant political, cultural, and social force in history. The lecture is immersed with content from Bart's book The Triumph of Christianity: How A Forbidden Religion Swept the World.
