Manifold Mistakes: A Video-Response to Bart Ehrman's "Manifold Greatness" Lecture

Earlier this year, in January, Dr. Bart Ehrman delivered a lecture as part of the Manifold Greatness project, a traveling exhibit organized in celebration of the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible.  The lecture is online at YouTube, so those interested in its full contents can view it directly. 

Some of Dr. Ehrman's statements about the KJV, as well as some tangential statements that he made, were highly inaccurate.  So, having been blessed with a little spare time and a lot of coffee, I have prepared some clarifications in the form of another video-lecture, which is at YouTube at .

Its title:  "Manifest Mistakes:  What Kind of Lecture Did Bart Ehrman Give?"
I use annotations throughout my lecture, so if you watch my video-response, watch using the Chrome browser on a desktop computer, to ensure that the annotations are visible.  (I don't think tablets currently display the annotations; results may vary from one to another.) 

The main focus is, of course, the KJV (and perhaps I should once again note that I am not KJV-Onlyist, in case some newcomers get the wrong idea).  Some text-critical subjects are also covered, especially in the second half of my response (specifically, the Johannine Comma, the PA, and Mark 16:9-20).

Yours in Christ,

James Snapp, Jr.
