The second episode in which Bart Ehrman defends his latest book ‘How Jesus Became God’ against Simon Gathercole. Ehrman claims that the early church turned Christ into the son of God. In this episode they discuss the earliest Christian writings in Scripture, and whether St Paul viewed Christ as a highly exalted being or as God himself.

Cambridge scholar Simon Gathercole has contributed to a response book ‘How God Became Jesus’ (released at the same time).
