In the first reading (post published June 22, 2017), Dr. Ehrman explains why, as he was losing his faith, he continued to attend Church and go through the motions as if he fully believed. In the second reading (post published August 17, 2012), Dr. Ehrman answers a member’s questions first pertaining to how Jesus (who spoke Aramaic) communicated with the Romans (who spoke Latin) and second about good books to read pertaining to the Roman practice of crucifixion.
