"IN THE BEGINNING" STUDENT
"It was impressive to learn what an objective approach can teach us! The course is a very professional production and a great value."
"Mesmerizing! Professor Ehrman's presentation and breadth of knowledge are astounding. I won't give away the best parts, but some of his insights are transformative. Whether you've never read the Bible or can read it in Hebrew, you're bound to expand your thinking." Stacey Morris
"It was so interesting to hear about the criteria historical researchers use and impressive to learn what an objective approach can teach us! Who knew!! The course is a very professional production and a great value. More please!" Chuck Higgins
"Bart brings entirely new insights into the history, myths, and legends of Genesis. His scholarship is impeccable and he's just plain so much fun to listen to!" Karen Weiland
"I’ve been waiting for this one. We all thought Bart was a NT scholar but now we realize that one can’t fully understand the NT without understanding the OT. Dr E you have enlightened me again. Again, brilliantly made!" Bill Sutherland
"Dr. Ehrman is a fantastic lecturer. He is insightful, lucid, and clear in his objective of historical examination of Bible sources." Scott Cassingham
"When I saw Bart Ehrman was providing instruction on the origins of the Old Testament, I was excited to get his scholarly perspective. The lectures were exactly what I hoped for — providing perspective, history, and context to help understand the contradictions, and confounding realities within these writings." Stephen Fox
"This is my third course, and I can’t wait for more. These are informative and educational lectures providing insight into the Bible not opinions. Thank you." Michele Kemper
"Dr. Ehrman is most known as a New Testament scholar, but he's well-studied in the Old Testament as well. This course is full of great insights for believers and non-believers alike; but perhaps mostly for Christians who are less familiar with the Old Testament than they would like to be." Anthony Dominello
"Enjoyed it very much! Chris Huntley orchestrated it superbly, and Bart did his usual informative teaching job. Thanks again." Steve Sutter
"This was a very good course and it was very well presented. I have read a lot of Dr. Ehrman's books and as usual, his depth of knowledge of the topic is excellent and well prepared. This is a 10 out of 10 course!" Mike C.
