How Jesus became God - Ehrman vs Gathercole P1

Published on Nov 12, 2021

On March 29th, 2014, Bart D. Ehrman and Simon J. Gathercole are invited as radio guests by moderator Justin Brierley on radio show "Unbelievable," a weekly program on UK Premier Christian Radio. They debate Bart's explosive book 'How Jesus Became God' claims that the early church turned Jesus into the son of God, but Jesus himself never believed it nor did his first followers. Cambridge scholar Simon Gathercole has contributed to a response book 'How God Became Jesus' (released at the same time) and, in the first of two shows, debates with Ehrman about whether the Gospels present a human or divine character.
