Why Bart Ehrman Doesn’t Have to Ruin Your Christmas (Or Your Faith) Part 6

This is the sixth of several videos Greg put together to refute Bart Ehrman’s claims published in the article What Do We Really Know About Jesus? In this segment, Greg addresses the apparent discrepancies in the genealogies of Luke and Matthew and the implausibility of the idea that they were simply fabricated. We’ve been hearing that people are using these video posts in Bible studies. That’s so wonderful. This series of videos really do serve as a nice foundation of defending the gospel narratives against various arguments. If you missed the first five installments you can find them herehereherehere and here.
