I have been trying to keep up with the storm Bart Ehrman's book "Did Jesus Exist? The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth" has unleashed. Christian apologists love Ehrman's conclusion but hate the scholarly consensus on a 'nobody Jesus'. Mythicists are upset over all the misrepresentation and fallacies Ehrman's book is riddled with. New Testament scholars (at least the ones that blog and the ones I know about) seem to be mostly silent but there are one or two fan boys rallying around Ehrman.
Looking at the arguments that get repeated on all three sides, it really seems to me that we inhabit parallel universes.
