Reports are beginning to filter out about the death of Jerome Murphy-O'Connor (born 10 April 1935 in Cork, Ireland died 11, November 2013 in Jerusalem). A Dominican priest and leading authority on the Aposlte Paul, O'Connor was Professor of New Testament at the École Biblique in Jerusalem, a position that he held since 1967.
O'Connor is well know among New Testament scholars for his expertise in the the New Testament. He wrote a number of important and helpful books on a wide range of topics including the Apostle Paul, archaeology and the geography of the Holy Land. He will be greatly missed.
