C. K. Barrett (1917-2011)

I am saddened to hear of the passing of C. K. Barrett.  Barrett was the first world-class scholar that I had the opportunity to meet back in my seminary days.  I remember him as a kindly British gentleman. This picture on Ben Witherington's blog is closer to how I remember him.  We've lost a giant in the NT world.

Barrett did not write any monographs or commentaries on Hebrews, but in 1954 he wrote a very influential article on "The Eschatology of the Epistle to the Hebrews" in The Background of the New Testament and Its Eschatology, edited by W. D. Davies and D. Daube.

He also wrote "The Christology of Hebrews" in Who Do You Say That I Am?: Essays on Christology, edited by Mark Allan Powell and David Bauer in 1999.

I just came across these article which have been added to the articles page:

Ackerman, David A. “The High Priesthood of Jesus and the Sanctification of Believers in Hebrews7–10.” Wesleyan Theological Journal 45.1 (Spring 2010): 226–45.

Joslin, Barry C. “Christ Bore the Sins of Many: Substitution and the Atonement in Hebrews.” Southern Baptist Journal of Theology 11 (2007): 74–103.

With the addition of this article I have crossed the milestone of 300 links for articles.
