It is not quite as if Carrier systematically engages Ehrman’s case either against Jesus Mythicism or on behalf of a historical Jesus. Indeed, his point is that Ehrman makes it impossible to go that far, because his book lingers on the level of sophomoric superficiality. Many of Professor Ehrman’s widely read books are popularizations of the party-line consensus of mainstream biblical scholarship, a useful service to be sure, but in Did Jesus Exist? the Professor seems to reveal that, when it comes to the needful expertise in adjacent fields, he himself relies on popularized treatments, often outdated at that.
Did Jesus exist? 2. Jesus Christ--Historicity. I. Zindler, Frank R. II. 9’08--dc23 2013000900 THIS BOOK IS DEDICATED to that Child of the Enlightenment and Founding Father Thomas Paine who wrote in The Age of Reason, Part Three: Repeated forgeries and falsifications create a well-founded suspicion that all the cases spoken of concerning the person called Jesus Christ are made cases, on purpose to lug in, and that very clumsily, some broken sentences from the Old Testament, and apply them as prophecies of those cases; and that so far from his being the son of God, he did not exist even as a man — that he is merely an imaginary or allegorical character, as Apollo, Hercules, Jupiter and all the deities of antiquity were.
If so, rest assured you were not alone. ” Me neither. So let’s compare notes. Overture My own contribution, “Bart Ehrman: Paradigm Policeman,” seeks to locate Professor Ehrman’s anti-Mythicist polemic in the hidden sociological-professional framework that governs how mainstream academics see (and don’t see) these issues, a perspective helpful for accounting for their public pronouncements when we cannot see how facts or cogent reasoning can have led to them. Then I take the opportunity to defend myself and my published opinions from Professor Ehrman’s contemptuous misrepresentations of them.
