Did Jesus (wrongly) preach that the end of the age and history as we know it was to come in his own time?  It’s one of the hottest topics in NT studies.  I’m pleased here to include a guest post by Platinum member Rizwan Ahmed on the question, in which he argues that my views do not rest on solid evidence.  What do you think?

As you know, Platinum members can submit posts to other Platinum members, and after a few get posted the Platinums can vote on which one gets posted to the whole blog.  It’s a real perk of Platinum membership — along with others (most important: a quarterly webinar with me, for Platinums only).  Check out the benefits and the membership requirements for that level and think about joining: Register – The Bart Ehrman Blog

For now: here’s Rizwan’s challenging post.
