In other words, there MUST have been a man named Jesus who actually WAS executed, because Christians went through so much effort to coalesce the notions of the Messiah with the fact that the person they claimed to be the Messiah suffered and died on a cross.
This effort indicates Jesus really was a man, since they had to admit that their claimed Messiah was executed, it must have been because everyone knew it. Similarly, the Messiah was predicted to be born in Bethlehem. Matthew and Luke both contain stories of Jesus birth, and both give different accounts of why Jesus, who was born to a couple from Nazareth, found himself born in Bethlehem. The Gospel of Luke tells a story about a huge census that required Mary and Joseph return to Bethlehem to and Mary just happened to give birth while they were at it an account for which there is no historical evidence , while Matthew gives an account of King Herod forcing Mary and Joseph to flee from their home, which resulted in Jesus being born in Bethlehem.
If Jesus was pure myth, he would have just been invented to have been from Bethlehem, as the ancient scriptures predicted.
The fact that Matthew and Luke both had to come up with unbelievable, credulity-straining contradictory stories explaining why a person from Nazareth was the messiah indicates that they had to explain away why Jesus must still be the messiah despite evidence to the contrary for ancient people.
I found these arguments quite convincing since they show believers making sense of historical facts that everyone at the time knew, indicating that they must have been true. These arguments closed the book on the matter for me. I cannot fathom why it took 6 chapters for Ehrman to finally make a convincing argument for the historicity of Jesus, or why it was preceded by pages upon pages of elitist, ad hominem attacks on his opponents.
The remainder of the book is a much more detailed look at very specific mythicist claims, rather than the general claims he so thoroughly failed to debunk in Chapters And once again, Ehrman provides the mythicist argument, which is relatively convincing or at least thought-provoking then makes incredibly poor arguments against it.
I'm about halfway through Chapter 7 as I write this, and I can barely stand the idea of wading through the second half of the book if it's just a repeat of the embarrassing arguments from the first half. I had hoped he'd move on and into more interesting territory, but it appears that Ehrman wishes to go even deeper in the areas he's already been.
I don't know if I'll be able to make it all the way through the book like this, every session is a struggle not to give up and read something else. I'm writing my review now because I have a hunch that I will soon abandon this book, and I wanted to write my thoughts down while they are fresh in my mind.
I suspect that Ehrman would not care what I have to say about the book. If the first chapter is any indication, his level of disdain for those who lack his qualifications is palpable, and I hold no degrees of any sort in history.
I'm just a fan of his work who had high hopes for this book.
If your attempt to convince those who are on your side to stay there sends them running for the opposition, I'd say your attempt is about as monumental a failure as one could conceive. As I said, I'm a huge fan of Ehrman's, and I look forward to his next book with the same excitement as I have with every other book of his. This book is the oozing pimple on his otherwise unblemished writing career. I cannot think of a single soul I'd recommend this book too, and I hope Ehrman's next brings a return to form for him.
The good news is that the book actually does get substantially better. After 2 more god-awful dissections of mythicist claims, Part III of the book begins, which essentially asks "now that we know Jesus existed, what can we know about what he said and what he did".

This part of the book is far, far, far more interesting and engaging than the rest of it. In fact, why talk about it at all, why not just operate on the premise of "assuming Jesus existed I'll tell you what's "stupid.
It's littered with contradictions which the blind are happy to ignore. It was cobbled together hundreds of years after the "death," of Jesus, who I'm not aware dictated it to anybody at the time of his life, for very political reasons and overseen by one of the most murderous Emperors Rome had ever seen, who made the Cult into an official State Religion and that's the only reason it spread through the Roman Empire and has been passed down to us in the badly translated form we have today.
That's before we get into all of the ideas it filched from previous pagan religions all of which can be found by a small amount of research into Horus, Buddha, Dinonysus, Osiris, Mithras and Krishna. There's nothing "original," about the "life," or "teachings," of Jesus..
As for the Israel comment which you insist is taken "out of context," I suggest you re-read the book, if you dare and he goes onto explain the "prophecy," of Jesus, which he got so wrong and on which, among others, literalists are pinning their hopes of a "salvation," which is never going to happen.
If God wants to give us his "inerrant," word, I'd suggest he finds a much more effective way of doing so, like speaking to us with a booming voice from the clouds, once and for all, rather than relying on what's become a "false idol," to millions of sad, deluded souls, in the form of The Bible.

I hate it. However, according to Lucian, a Greek author from the second century who provides the only surviving treatise on the proper conventions of writing history in that era, historians were instructed to use accurate content. Why is it most people have never heard such things? Because he claimed to, and he insisted, in the passage describing meeting them, that he wasn't lying.
