Mythicism Debate Tonight

This evening (i think soon) Bart Ehrman and Robert Price will be debating the existence of Jesus.

Ehrman is a famous agnostic Jesus scholar, Robert Price is a less famous mythicist (meaning he believes Jesus never existed).

Debate: Dr. Robert Price and Bart D. Ehrman Did Jesus Exist? - Cleeng

If you are bored, and have ten bucks, it may be a fun thing to watch this evening.

Wow... Robert Price actually said he didn't think Galatians was written by Paul.

On what grounds? I thought that was one of the undisputed writings.

In class, it is part of his routine in the class Acts and Pauline Epistles.

Yeah, I saw that it was satire, just didn't know if it was available to read. Thought it'd be funny

So... did they actually provide any compelling evidence against the existence of Jesus?

I thought Jesus being real was one of those things that had enough historical evidence, even if you didn't believe anything beyond that.

There's a publish-or-die culture in the humanities, and that includes religious history. You have to get published somehow!

But seriously: the tack must be that the Jesus denied is "as according to the story", and keeping the scope of reference as narrow as possible. Beyond that, there's no compelling reasoning to think that Jesus of Nazareth, whether human or human-and-divine, is merely a literary device without connection to a human who was born and died. Any reasons offered would need to do damage to the historical method, or wipe the vast majority of lesser-known figures, like Parmenides and Homer as non-existent. That's kind of a big pill to swallow.
