3 parts, 4 hours total.  Basically the history of the early church tells you much about what this was all about.  And how our modern understanding mis-interprets what the old writings are saying.

Ehrman's problem is that the "old writings" are not old enough.



And of that handful of early manuscripts some are scraps which are smaller than a credit card.  The near continual jesus freak refrain that we have so many copies of NT horseshit shrivels when we realize where the bulk of this crap comes from. 
The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

-- H. L. Mencken
