The Passing of Marcus Borg (March 11, 1942 - January 21, 2015)


The news about Marcus Borg's death is spreading. Borg was a recognized New Testament scholar who became associated with the Jesus Seminar in the 1980s and 90s. 


Among his many books were some like Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time and Putting Away Childish Things: A Tale of Faith of Modern Faith. Both reflect his many attempts to bring New Testament scholarship to a non-scholarly audience. 

Although there were any number of things one could about disagree with Borg, he was always a gentleman. His desire to make the New Testament accessible and useful for those living in the modern age will not only be one of his hallmarks, it will be greatly missed.
