A Muslim interviews Dr. Bart Ehrman. The Muslim guy is shocked to learn from Bart Ehrman that the doctrine of the Trinity is not based on just one verse.
Ehrman says, “the doctrine of the Trinity is not based on a single verse” and the Muslim guys is shocked – “It’s not?!”
Interesting that the Muslim guy interviewing Bart Ehrman did not know about Matthew 28:19 and 2 Corinthians 13:14 and all the other verses on the Deity of Christ (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2, Colossians 1, Hebrews 1:6, 8, 10-12) and Deity of the Holy Spirit (Acts 5:3-5; John 14; 16) and that a doctrine is not based solely on one verse.
A Muslim interviews Dr. Bart Ehrman. Ehrman assumes that the Qur’an has no textual variants; and yet it does; although admittedly, much less than the New Testament.
Also, The Jewish Scriptures (OT) have textual variants also, especially on numbers; & Ehrman simplistically did not mention the older manuscripts and the Lxx (Greek translation) – He said “Medieval”, I think he means from the Masoretic text onward. Ehrman did not mention Dead Sea Scrolls.
Ehrman doesn’t know about Hadith and Muslim history claim that Uthman ordered collection, and to make one standard copy and destroy all the rest. The NT had no such state and military power and enforcement. Therefore the parallel is wrong. Hadith Sahih Al Bukhari Volume 6, Book 61, Hadith 509 and 510
Ehrman fails to point out to the Muslims that: The New Testament was transmitted mostly by regular Christians under persecution for the first 300 + years. vs. The Qur’an had the state government with the power of the sword and force under Uthman to collect all the oldest fragments.
