Remembering Leonard Goppelt

GoppeltGoppelt passed away on the 21st of December in 1973 after a productive life of biblical scholarship. He left behind a legacy of learning and several generations of grateful students.

Probably best known for his New Testament Theology (in two volumes) in my mind his greatest work is this amazingly groundbreaking Typos. He also wrote commentaries (as one must if one is a scholar of the Bible) and many studies.

There are other posts concerning him here which you may find engaging.

Might I suggest that if you aren’t very familiar with him and his work, you take a little time to become so. I assure you, he has much to tell you.
