The discussion by Hays, George Washington Ivey Professor of New Testament at Duke Divinity School, and Ehrman, James A. Gray distinguished professor and chairman of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was meant to address questions raised by the bestselling book, soon to be released as a film. The reliability of portrayals of Jesus in the Bible and other ancient texts was among the topics addressed.
