David Flusser’s Birth-iversary / Death-iversary

leave a comment »

flusserDavid Flusser (a remarkable scholar) was born on 15 September, 1917, and died 15 September, 2000.  Flusser was that rarest of academics- a Jewish scholar of the New Testament.  Given his background and training, his insights into New Testament literature are grandly eye-opening.  You can take a look at just a few of his major works here.  He’s not as well known these days as he should be and it’s only rarely that he is mentioned any more.  And that’s a shame.  Young scholars are missing an invaluable resource when they skip him.  Indeed, he’s much, much better than today’s Purple Shirt wearing superstars.  And he’s far superior to the speculators spewing old heresies and pretending they’re new insights.
