Bruce Metzger, R.I.P.

Bruce Metzger, an expert on the text of the New Testament (and a Ph.D. in Classics to boot!), has died. Anyone who has used the reddish-covered New Testament text published by United Bible Societies will be familiar with his name. One of the pre-eminent names in the field of biblical studies has departed from this earth.

May he rest in peace.
