The Passing of Jerome Murphy-O'Connor

Reports are beginning to filter out about the death of Jerome Murphy-O'Connor (born 10 April 1935 in CorkIreland died 11, November 2013 in Jerusalem). 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.
