In this one-on-one edition of the show, Justin Brierley speaks to New Testament Historian Bart Ehrman about his recent book “Did Jesus Exist?” which argues for the historical fact of Jesus of Nazareth. Ehrman, whose books are more usually at odds with evangelicals, was this time attacked by atheist proponents of “mythicism” - the view that Jesus never existed.

He responds to the criticisms, including mythicists Bob Price and Richard Carrier and answers questions sent in by Unbelievable? listeners.
