  1. Thank you very much for this podcast. So do most historians agree that Jesus was an apocalypticist? Bart Ehrman says, for instance, that since Albert Schweitzer's book most historians hold that view, although they do not agree with the intricate details of his reconstruction. Is this your view of the historical Jesus as well?

  2. Marc - great stuff - but it comes to an abrupt end - mid sentence.

    It's in the carnival so I hope you can fix it.

  3. Thanks for your comments. Bob: it ends with a little post-credit excerpt from the Schweitzer documentary, about "the eternal quest for truth". Is that what you are hearing? If not, you may need to re-download.

    1. Second time in and it is working fine now. Thanks
