Maurice Robinson joins blog

Maurice Robinson has (finally) agreed to join the blog. He is Senior Professor of New Testament at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. His webpage is here. He is well-known as the editor of The New Testament in the Original Greek: Byzantine Textform, 2005 (reviewed here; order here), and also for his publications (e.g. here) adocating the Byzantine-Priority position. He has, I believe, collated all available manuscripts relevant to the study of the Pericope Adulterae (full publication still awaited; preliminary results in Filología Neotestamentaria somewhere), compiled indices to the Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew-English Lexicon and Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon. Ever philanthropic in publication he is also responsible for a widely-used freeware version of Westcott and Hort's edition of the Greek New Testament. For an interview with Prof. Robinson go to Dave Black online. I'm absolutely delighted that he has agreed to join us. He has, of course, regularly edified us in comments on the blog, but we now look forward to being edified through postings he initiates as well!


  1. Wow! Welcome to the blog Dr. Robinson! I'm looking foward to your posts. This blog is becoming a wonderful resource.

    Next on the list of scholars to bring in, Dr. Daniel Wallace?

  2. There's a long-standing open invitation for him. In the mean time we'll gladly publicise anything Dan does. Of course, we fully understand that some very gifted evangelical textual critics feel unable to join the blog.

  3. I first heard Dr. Robinson in 1985 (!) when he presented a paper at the Southeastern ETS meeting in Nashville Tennessee. This was my first moment of inspiration for doing PhD studies in tc.

    He has shown more than his share of patience toward me (and no doubt others) in answering the occasional sophomoric questions I raised in corresponding with him in over the last 8 years.

    I am struck by his genuine and personal interest in his email responses.
