Bruce Metzger Dies at 93

Bruce Metzger, Bible translator, languages scholar, and one of the foremost experts on New Testament manuscripts has died of natural causes at age 93. (HT: Better Bibles Blog). The story is available here.

Metzger made numerous contributions, including working on editions of the Greek New Testament, a book on the New Testament Text, and a New Testament vocabulary guide, as well as being a leading member of the NRSV translation committee. I appreciate him, and am deeply in debt to his scholarship.
