Probably many of you will have already heard about the sad news that Graham Stanton, an eminent NT scholar, has passed away. I did not know Prof. Stanton, but I have been impressed with his scholarship. Also, an acquaintance of mine, Stephen Witmer, studied under Prof. Stanton at Cambridge – I assume as one of his last students. He had a great experience.
It is because of people like Stanton that I wanted to study at Cambridge. Things did not work out that way (I basically bombed the GRE), and it is all for the best (as I have loved Durham), but I am sad that I did not get to know Prof. Stanton.
Out of respect, I may finally pick up his Gospel book that I have been meaning to read.
