Sad News: The Death of Rene Kieffer

Tommy Wasserman has the obituary of a New Testament scholar recently passed away.

René Kieffer, Professor emeritus of Uppsala University, has passed away on 8 January at the age of 83. He was born in Aumetz in France and raised in Luxembourg. After studies in Paris and Germany he felt a call to become a priest and theologian in the Dominican order in Paris. This process started with eight years of studies in philosophy and theology. Because of his interest in the Bible, Kieffer was sent to the École Biblique in Jerusalem for two years of special education in order to become a professor there, but he felt isolated in this environment and longed for a pastoral work.

And more.  May he rest in peace.
