For example, Trent Horn early in his article says that " The Life of Apollonius was probably created as a competitor to the Gospel accounts of Jesus which, by that point, were in wide circulation across the Roman Empire."
I'm sure one reason is his controversial and eyebrow-raising topics. It is not hard to make the argument that if Jesus had never been declared God, our form of civilization would have been unalterably and indescribably different.Here is why. That's what the earliest Christians thought about Jesus. The book basically explores how the crucified Jesus transformed into not just the Messiah, but the Lord of all creation.
You will be well rewarded by your efforts as you will actually see the early processes of the Church as it grew deeper in it's faith.For example, among Tacitus, Suetonius, and Cassius Dio we have three different accounts of where Nero was when Rome burned, but that doesn’t mean Nero wasn’t in the city when it happened.Nero could have been anywhere. . I thought what we were supposed to be doing was judging people's ideas, not judging people.I enjoyed the book, and I think it's disappointing how many ChristiansIt is good to see a review of Bart Ehrman's work that does not treat him as a crackpot or an "outlier."
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and the sea is no more.And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

In summation, your points have been reserved but valid I think.
If the story of Apollonius is parasitic upon the story of Jesus, then that makes the story of the “God-man” Jesus all the more exceptional and difficult to explain without recourse to a miracle.I think it was New Testament critic Burton Mack who said that the greatest mystery of Christianity is the question of how Jesus came to be worshipped as God so quickly after his death. The rubic cube of complexity in religious and non religious truth is amazing.I read "How Jesus Became God" and the refutation, "How God Became Jesus." Historians always conflict, sometimes incredibly widely; who are you going to believe? Hallucinations happen all the time. For example, in about 150 words Christ explained the three great philosophies of life in the parable of the good Samaritan. Non-Christians would say that (several of ) the disciples had hallucinations. Call all historical research into question! The answer is that you’d be reading Michael Bird’s recent editorial work How God Became Jesus: The Real Origins of Belief in Jesus’ Divine Nature.
Summary. If you do not believe the Bible is the inspired word of God—or even if you do—what is a more reliable way to study the Bible?I made the mistake for a couple of decades to rely on biblical scholarship as if it were the truth. And it matters not just for those who believe that the followers of Jesus got it right, but for anyone who cares about the factors that shaped the world we live in today. Let's end the debate about who is right or wrong in their beliefs and start the debate on how to be kinder to each other. https://www.thegreatcourses.com/courses/how-jesus-became-god.html . Did Jesus claim it?
And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads names of blasphemy; And I saw, and behold, the Lamb stood on the mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand, having his name, and the name of his Father written on their foreheads.And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having seven plagues; which are the last, because in them is completed the wrath of God.And I heard a loud voice out of the temple, saying to the seven angels: Go, and pour out the seven cups of the wrath of God into the earth.And there came one of the seven angels who have the seven cups, and talked with me, saying: Come hither; I will show thee the judgment of the great harlot, that sits upon many waters; After these things I saw another angel coming down out of heaven, having great authority; and the earth was lightened with his glory. That doesn't mean he is right about everything, or even right about the most important things.
Also, the vast majority of biblical scholars who laid the foundations of modern New Testament scholarship beginning in the eighteenth century were believing Christians.
The culmination of the story of Israel 2. The early divinity claim is problematic as well.
So what happened that transformed the crucified peasant, Jesus, into the Lord who created heaven and earth? It is highly important.
Check out Ehrman's appearance on the unbeleivable podcast recently. If Christianity were not a large and viable religion by the beginning of the fourth century, the emperor Constantine would almost certainly not have converted to it.
'How Jesus Became God' is a good packaging of current scholarship on the historical Jesus for the neophyte. It is more like ignoring the elephant in the room.So in that context the fact that Ehrmans position is moving around does mean something.
How Jesus Became God is not to be mentioned in the same breath as "debunking" books like The Passover Plot. In what sense do you regard David's posts as the skeptical position ?

No book has helped my belief as much as this three volume set. And understanding why someone thinks the way they think is key to getting along with them. This is my concluding review of Ehrman's How Jesus Became God, giving a summary of the book and my overall impressions. That's one of the reasons I'm here: to try to understand the viewpoints if people whose thought-processes are utterly alien to me.
