  •  Bart Ehrman (2+ / 0-)

    I have read a couple of books by Bart Ehrman and have taken a couple of his courses from The Great Courses. I wasn't aware of "Forged" but will check on it. Marcus Borg in his book about the writings of St. Paul seemed to think that forgery was no big deal in those days and there were no copyright laws. However, the church fathers who established the New Testament canon were definitely hoodwinked. As you know, the letters to Timothy also promote female submissiveness, and those letters have also been determined not to be written by St. Paul but by an unknown author several decades later.
