Stay tuned for a day of remembrance. It is impossible for me to express how important Bultmann has been to me over the course of my life. He and von Rad were pivotal and critical while I was in grad school and they have both remained insurmountable and indestructible. Those who haven’t read Bultmann really have no reason to describe themselves as New Testament scholars just as those who have ignored von Rad have no cause to call themselves Old Testament scholars. They are both that important and that epoch making.
