It was three years ago today that we lost the great New Testament scholar E. Earle Ellis. Ellis was influential in bringing the spirit of Tyndale House to the states in the form of the Institute for Biblical Research. His work on the use of the OT in the NT is still valuable. At the time of his death, he was working diligently on a commentary on 1 Cor in the ICC series.
For a brief biographical sketch of his life from the Festschrift History and Exegesis: New Testament Essays in Honor of Dr. E. Earle Ellis on His Eightieth Birthday go here.
