Course Description

Worshiped around the globe by more than a billion people today, Jesus is undoubtedly the single most important figure in the story of Western civilization and one of the most significant in world history altogether. Yet, Jesus of Nazareth presents unique challenges to the historian, as Professor Bart D. Ehrman explains in this 24-lecture course on the search for the Jesus of history. Join him for an erudite survey of sources, methods, contexts, and problems, and then weigh his carefully thought-out historical interpretation of the words and deeds of the man from Galilee.

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.
