The Passing of Friedrich Avemarie (1960-2012)

Professor Jorg Frey has passed on the news that Friedrich Avemarie has died a few days before his 52nd birthday. Avemarie was Professor of New Testament at Marburg.

Here is what Professor Frey posted on Facebook

I have just learned that my dear friend and colleague Prof. Dr. Friedrich Avemarie (University Marbrug) died yesterday of a heart attack. He would have turned 52 years old in a few days. He was a wonderful person and one of the few true friends you can have in science, a great scholar who knew rabbinic literature like no other in our profession.
