“Bart Ehrman and Robert Price meet to debate “Did Jesus Exist” which was the headliner event of Mythinformation Conference III Buzzed Belief Debate Series presented by Mythicist Milwaukee at Turner Hall in Milwaukee, WI. The event took place on Friday October 21st 2016, 1:00 PM – 9:00 PM CDT. The Mythicist Milwaukee focuses on educating the freethought/skeptic/atheist community about the mythological origins of religion. Dr. Robert Price asserts the Jesus Myth Theory viewpoint – wherein there are flaws with the evidence for a historical Jesus – and made the case that Jesus is no more than a mythological figure. Jesus while Professor Ehrman supported the stance that there is strong evidence for the existence for a historical Jesus. This was one of the most anticipated debates in the secular and theist realm alike! Two New Testament scholars coming together to discuss the hotly debated topic of the existence of a historical Jesus Christ.
