Richard Longenecker

Euangelion had started an Evangelical Exegetes Hall of Fame. His first pick is Richard Longenecker, who taught at the University of Toronto and once in a while spoke to our Inter Varsity Group. I'll always regret that I didn't take his courses myself, I had a full slate with all those languages and didn't know any better. However, my Brethren girlfriend reported carefully his reasoning for permitting the ordination of women, and we spent a lot of time discussing these issues. He was great influence on our group of young people. I'm glad he came out to talk to our group. Thanks, Dr. Longenecker.
