Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Bart Ehrman’s Text, "Jesus, Apocalyptic Prophet of the New Millennium"
This paper reviews and analyzes Bart
Ehrman’s
text, Jesus, Apocalyptic Prophet of the New Millennium. The paper shall offer a summary of the text and then shall enter into a detailed description of the book, its thesis, themes, methodology, value and significance as an educational text. The thesis at the heart of the book is that Christ was an apocalyptic preacher – which makes sense and is amply demonstrated by the evidence upon which

Conclusion
To bring this essay to a close, we can plainly see that
Ehrman
is a writer who understands his material and he is a man who is quite cognizant of the precautions that any scholar must take in a matter such as this one (reviewing ancient historical documents is never an easy matter and must be done with great care). His work is meticulous, intimately acquainted with the pertinent sources, and well-written. Save for the tangents into historiography, it is a model academic work.
