Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why By Ehrman, Bart D.

Updated: Oct 22, 2020

About the Book

In this book, the author shows where and why changes were made in our earliest surviving manuscripts, explaining for the first time how the many variations of our cherished biblical stories came to be, and why only certain versions of the stories qualify for publication in the Bibles we read today.The author frames his account with personal reflections on how his study of the Greek manuscripts made him abandon his once ultra–conservative views of the Bible.

What I Love About It

  1. He also describes, and makes compelling cases for, intentional changes to the text made by early groups of Christians and their possible motivations for making these changes.

  2. He also quotes some terribly interesting material regarding the transcription and duplication of the early manuscripts.

Quotes to Remember

  1. “What if we have to figure out how to live and what to believe on our own, without setting the Bible up as a false idol—or an oracle that gives is a direct line of communication with the Almighty?”

  2. “The books we call the New Testament were not gathered together into one canon and considered scripture, finally and ultimately, until hundreds of years after the books themselves had first been produced.”
