On October 15, 2006, Bart D. Ehrman was interviewed about his book, "Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why," published by Harper San Francisco. His New York Times best-seller Misquoting Jesus documents the many differences in the 5400-plus existing Greek manuscripts on which the New Testament is based, and the problems this causes scholars. In this interview he also discussed his current book at that time, "The Lost Gospel of Judas Iscariot."
Bart was interviewed at Bryant Park in New York City during the New York Times Great Read in the park, by C-SPAN2 Book TV.
