The Passing of Frederick W. Danker

Over at the Evangelical Textual Criticism Blog Pete Williams is reporting that Fred Danker has died. Pete received the news from an email chain.

Dr. Frederick William Danker of St. Louis was one of the world’s leading authority on New Testament Greek. Danker is a former educator at Concordia Seminary, Christ Seminary-Seminex, and the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, from which he retired in 1988. He is published in numerous collections and periodicals and continues to be a much sought-after expert in biblical scholarship. Danker is a renowned classicist and theologian. He is the author of numerous books and commentaries, most notably The Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament.
