Martin Hengel (1926–2009) was a celebrated biblical scholar and committed churchman. In this collection of essays, the authors celebrate his career as a teacher and scholar by several essays from the Tyndale Fellowship that engage with Martin Hengel's contributions to the areas of Christology, Gospel research, and the study of the early church and ancient Judaism.
Martin Hengel (1926–2009) was a historian of the early church and ancient Judaism. His influence extended through his many publications, research students, conference participation, and ecclesiastical work. His scholarly legacy was honoured by a conference at Tyndale House in July 2010 with a number of speakers from Germany, England, and the USA coming together to remember and honour their colleague with papers on topics that Martin Hengel spent his life exploring. The essays in this volume include biographical works by former students remembering him as both a teacher and Christian scholar. Thereafter, several essays on Christology, the Gospels, and Judaism and Early Christianity engage with his contribution to these areas. Also included in the collection are new translations of six of Martin Hengel's most important essays put into English for the first time.
