The Gospel Truth: Sometimes A Little Hazy
 External Link to Original Content

What is the story of Jesus’s birth? How did Judas die? What did Jesus say when he was crucified? It depends on which gospel you read. Bible scholar Bart Ehrman says there are irreconcilable differences among the gospels. Those differences, and what they tell us about Christianity and the authors of the gospels, is the subject of Ehrman’s new book, “Jesus Interrupted.”

Ehrman is a distinguished professor of religious studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and he’s the author of many books about bible history, including the bestseller, “Misquoting Jesus.”

As a young man studying at the Moody Bible Institute, he was an evangelical Christian who believed the Bible was the inerrant word of God. But later, when he was a student at Princeton Theological Seminary and started reading the Bible with a more historical approach, analyzing the contradictions among the gospels, he lost faith in the Bible as the literal word of God. He now describes himself as an agnostic.
