Were the authors of the gospels who told fanciful stories about Jesus making stuff up, or did they have faulty memories, or both? Bart Ehrman, The James A Gray Professor of Religious Studies at The University of North Carolina tackles the issue of Jesus and memory. He is one the most renowned and controversial religious scholars in the world. He studies the historical Jesus and early Christian writings but is not a Christian. He has written over twenty books and has appeared on this program twice previously. His latest book is Jesus Before the Gospels: How the Earliest Christians Remembered, Changed, and Invented Their Stories of The Savior.
