From the wiki bio: "Ehrman began studying the Bible and its original languages at the Moody Bible Institute and is a 1978 graduate of Wheaton College in Illinois. He received his Ph.D and M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary, where he studied under Bruce Metzger."
I would say yes, definitely.
Yeah I think Moody still taught language back in those days. I came along later and got the teaching without language courses but learned it from guys who did. How this guy comes to the conclusions he comes to is beyond me.
