Ehrman vs Bauckham Part 2: Can we trust eyewitness testimony?

Justin hosts the second part of a debate between noted Bible scholars Bart Ehrman and Richard Bauckham. Ehrman’s new book “Jesus Before the Gospels” makes the case that eyewitness testimony is very fallible and that the stories about Jesus that were written down in the Gospels would have changed shape over time.
Richard Bauckham, author of “Jesus and the Eyewitnesses”, defends the trustworthiness of eyewitness testimony and addresses the question of how Jesus’ sayings and stories would have been memorised and passed along.
