Misquoting Jesus - Edited Edition

I found this lecture very interesting, but a little long for reference purposes. So, I have edited the lecture segments into those topics that address textural alterations, both accidental and deliberate, and inconsistencies between Gospel accounts.

I have also added most of Ehrman's answers from the Q&A session that followed the lecture.

I find it horrifying that so much prejudice and oppression has been based on this highly flawed invention.
