Misquoting Jesus Details

Considered to be one of the bestselling world-class biblical scholar, Bart Ehrman is renowned for his collection of books examining Christianity and the life of Jesus. Ehrman started his career when he discovered hundreds of intentional changes and mistakes that had been made throughout history by hundreds of different translators.

He frames his account and analysis with astute personal reflections on how his study of the Greek manuscripts made him abandon his once ultraconservative views of the Bible.

While many have argued that the words they read in the New Testament are an exact copy of the words of Jesus or St. Paul and have remained perfectly preserved, Ehrman argues that this overlooks the reality that each of these manuscripts changed hands dozens of times thus changing throughout their lifespan. He attempts to reveal exactly where these alterations were made, what the original Bible said, and why those changes may have been written in.

Ehrman proposes that many of our cherished biblical stories and widely held beliefs concerning certain aspects of the Bible stems from both intentional and accidental alterations by scribes -- alterations that dramatically affected all subsequent versions of the Bible.
