On Feb. 6, 2007, Bart D. Ehrman gave a lecture at The Cathedral College of Washington National Cathedral on "Misquoting Jesus" an exploration of how scribes changed the bible and possible reasons why. Bart questions the substantial integrity of the transmission of the New Testament manuscripts. Some orthodox scribes in the early church and later corrupted the New Testament to sustain and fortify their own theology.
