I don't know if this has been posted or not yet, but it is a very interesting lecture by Bart Ehrman.

Here's the link to YouTube:

It's in ten parts so it takes a while to listen to the whole thing.

"If God wrote a book, wont you want to see what he has to say"
That really hit me. I had press pause and think about it. I haven't pressed it again to listen to the rest because i am still thinking about that line.
it is deep.

We all need to read the  Quran more.


I got to 4/10 where he mentions that the story of the adulterer not being stoned was clearly fabricated because it doesn’t appear in the earlier bibles but appears in the later ones. It has a completely different righting style of the rest of John so it was clearly fabricated.
I always knew this one was fabricated because it would have meant Jesus was following himself above Allah. Because the verse mentions that it was Allah’s law to stone and Jesus refused saying only people without sin can do it and everyone has sin. This would mean Jesus was saying Allah was wrong, and as a Prophet of God he would never say such a thing.
Christians often use this against us, stating we are barbaric for obeying Allah and stoning who Allah says should be. But they are confused because they say God says stone, Jesus says don’t stone and Jesus is God.

Just finished watching the whole thing. thank you I liked it.
I like how he mentioned writters liked to remove bits of the bible that weren't fashionable at the time. I think people t ry to do this with the Sunnah when it disagrees with their logic.
