According to Paleo Judaica, Richard Bauckham retires today from his post as Professor of New Testament and Bishop Wardlaw Professor at the University of St. Andrews.
His most recent ground breaking work is Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony, published last year.
He’s written and edited 17 books including notably the Word Biblical Commentary on 2 Peter and Jude (Amazon), which is considered by most to be one of the best commentaries written on the two books and still a groundbreaking, exegetical masterpiece 24 years later.
Read Jim Davila’s tribute to Bauckham, which includes some pretty cool details about his achievements and plans for the future – HERE. Its excellent and a bit surprising.
