Blast from the Past: Colbert vs. Ehrman

With Colbert's big new promotion in the news, I thought I'd revisit this blast from the past. I wonder if we'll see any further discussion of historical Jesus issues on The Late Show.

I, for one, certainly hope so.

Not much light here, because Ehrmann doesn't get to build a sensible case and Colbert's questions show him to be flailing in a fairly deep scholarly pool. There are reasons why Ehrman's interpretation might be problematic, but Colbert needs to go back to school to approach a serious level of analysis. But then, who would listen...? I do commend Colbert for risking this conversation, however.
