He told me that effective a year from now, LARRY HURTADO
WILL BE THE UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR OF NEW TESTAMENT AT THE
UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH! This isn't one of several professors of
New Testament, but THE Professor of New Testament! The post is
one of the English-speaking world's most distinguished.
This is wonderful news, and an appointment of which we can
all be proud, since Larry is one of our List's periodic
contributors. My personal reaction was, WOW! An AMERICAN (well,
now Canadian I suppose) winning out over all the Brits! (No
offense intended, U.K. list-members.)
Congratulations to Larry Hurtado!
