This course was amazing! The Course's discussion was always lively and engaging, and each of the videos presented each week was full of great historical insights into the Bible, the ancient history of Israel and Judah, as well as the religion and people that would later become Judaism. I cannot recommend this class highly enough to people who have a fascination with the history of the ancient world and the birth of the Bible. A truly outstanding course!
Dr. Ehrman is an extremely gifted public speaker and a while versed academic in the field of Historical Jesus research and Christian Origins. While the format of presentation is a bit dated by modern standards, the information presented by Dr. Ehrman is extremely engaged, well paced, and presented well. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning what scholars of the New Testament and Earliest Christianity have been writing about the Historical Jesus for the last two hundred years. This course is extremely introductory, so people who have read even some of the most popular academic studies on the Historical Jesus will already much of the details given by Dr. Ehrman. Having said that, there is plenty to listen too and learn! A great course.
Outstanding course! Prof. Nasarallah is an extremely gifted instructor and academic. The videos, tools, texts, and study guides allow students to go deeper into the world of the earliest Christians, focusing on the life of the Apostle Paul. Prof. Nasarallah highlights the great challenges Paul faced, the defeats he suffered, the successes he enjoyed, all from a historical prospective. Amazing, glad I signed up!
