On The Anniversary of Bultmann’s Death

Rudolf Karl Bultmann, the greatest New Testament exegete of the 20th century (and as yet still unsurpassed as the best New Testament exegete of all time) died on the 30th of July in 1976.  In honor of the great man, here’s a photo galleryHere’s a recent book about him.  Here’s a fun essay about him.  Here’s a quote from the quotable chap.  And here’s a reminiscence on the anniversary of his death I posted two years ago.

Rudolf, you were and remain the greatest New Testament scholar of your generation and ours.  Thanks for your great work.  We still miss you.
