Dr. Craig vs Dr. Ehrman on the Resurrection of Jesus

Over at Victor Repert's Blog there has been quite a discussion about the release of the transcript of the debate between William Lane Craig and Bart Ehrman on the historical evidence of the resurrection of Jesus. It's now been released and you can read it here.

It sure seems to me like Craig is still the master debater. I really liked Ehrman's opening statement, but I think Craig forced him to "play his game" rather than develop his own strategy. While I agree with Ehrman, it just seems to me that in order to debate the resurrection someone needs to spend so much time giving the audience a foundation to one's argument that he can't effectively argue against the resurrection in a 2 hour debate, especially against Craig, who does it all of the time.

I've commented on Craig's first rebuttal here.
