QUESTION FROM THE AUDIENCE: i've been reading Bible for last 5 years, especiallyNT. Jesus said I've come not to change Torah but to fulfill it. the only way to go toheaven is to follow Torah more than rabbis. Torah: no mention of son, father, and holyghost. why didn't prophets of OT mention?MATTHEW 5:17 is distinctive to Matthew, emphasizes that Jesus' followers need tofollow the Torah.
Apostle Paul says the opposite. he says that a person can't beright with God by following the Torah (fabrication), but in Matthew Jesus saysthat his followers have to follow the Torah.
 
Question about the fact that the Torahdoesn't mention father, son, and holy spirit has been a problem of theologians forcenturies. they had to deal with that when they were developing the doctrine ofthe Trinity. they came up with solutions to that which by modern standards wouldbe seen as creative (fabrication).
(Bart Ehrman)MATTHEW 24:36, end of time. "not even the son knows the hour". phrase taken out inlater manuscripts.MARK 1, jesus heals leper. jesus felt compassion for the man. other manuscripts saythat Jesus got angry healed the man. (fabrication?)2nd major change. Mark. favorite gospel. subtle and understated, says things you dontexpect. women go to tomb which is empty. man tells women jesus is gone, will meetyou in Galilee. women fled and said nothing out of fear. end of gospel of Mark.

scribes added 12 verses to MARK 16:8. (fabrication)
footnotes will tell you they areadded by later scribes. not in earliest and best manuscript, different writing styles. jesussays "make disciples of all nations… deadly snakes and drinking poison." (Bart Ehrman)QUESTION FROM THE AUDIENCE: relationship between the changes in themanuscripts and decisions of canon?that issue didn't come up. choice of canon due to changes. if woman taken in adulteryisn't in oldest manuscripts, but is in most of manuscripts from middle ages, is it part ofthe Bible or not? last 12 verses of MARK? not a question for a historian, but atheologian.
Ehrman is surprised that theologians show no interest or knowledge intextual criticism at all, most of them.
(Bart Ehrman)LUKE: Jesus is not silent. daughters of Jerusalem, don't weep for me weep foryourselves. father forgive them, for they don't know what they're doing. two robbers, onecriticizes, one has faith. today you will be with me in paradise. father, into your hands icommend my spirit. prayer of forgiveness to the jews, not the romans in interpretationsof early christian interpretors. this prayer is omitted in some early manuscripts(fabrication?). scribes didn't think God forgave Jews. Jews are guilty of Killing Christ.destruction of Jerusalem in 70ad was punishment to Jews for rejecting messiah. in 2and 3rd century, Christians said Jesus was God and Jews were guilty of deicide.

JOHN 3:3, a person must be born "onothen" to enter the kingdom of heaven. it canmean from above or a second time, depending on the context. Nicodemus thinks itmeans born again. the double entendre only comes in the Greek, not the Aramaic. notHebrew either. Jesus probably read Hebrew but spoke Aramaic, the language inPalestine at his time. (FABRICATION)

JOHN 
3:16“For God so loved the world, that He gave
His only begotten Son
, that whoever
believes in Him
shall not perish, but have eternal life.
(“begotten” is fabricated. according to RSV)
evangelical scholars got upset
:
THIS ISN'T NEWS, WE'VE KNOWN ABOUT THIS
 
FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS. SCHOLARS HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THIS SINCEJOHN MILL IN 1707, BUT NOBODY'S BOTHERED TO TELL A GENERALAUDIENCE. THE REASON IS OBVIOUS: BECAUSE IT'S HARD. WE'RE TALKINGABOUT GREEK MANUSCRIPTS TO PEOPLE WHO DON'T READ GREEK.

.
FABRICATION
. added to john by later scribes, not inany of early or best mscrpts. Greek commentators don't mention story until 10thcentury. writing style is different. scholars have known for years that it doesnt belong in john. maybe written in the margins by a scribe, picked up and added to text into KJV in1611. not originally in NT. significant change in NT.

1 JOHN 5:6-8This is he that came by water and blood,
even 
Jesus Christ; not by water only,but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because theSpirit is truth. For
there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, theWord, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
And there are three thatbear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these threeagree in one.(
Verses 7-8 are fabrications according to Bart D. Ehrman and RSV)
scribes changed passages to emphasize jesus was divine. others changed toemphasize that he was human. wanted to emphasize both

DOCTRINE OF THETRINITY IS NOT EXPLICITLY TAUGHT IN ANY PASSAGE OF THE BIBLE. THEIDEA THAT THERE ARE THREE GODS (OOPS)… THE DOCTRINE THAT THERE'SONE GOD MANIFEST IN THREE PERSONS. THESE THREE PERSONS ARE EACHINDIVIDUALLY COMPLETELY GOD, BUT THERE'S ONLY ONE GOD. NOT THREEGODS, BUT ONE GOD. BUT NOT ONE PERSON, THREE PERSONS. THIS IS NOT
