Remembering Larry Hurtado

The good folk at the Lexham Press blog have this week put up three excellent posts remembering the fine contributions Professor Larry Hurtado (who died a year ago this week) made to New Testament Studies, on textual criticism (by Tommy Wasserman), Christology (by Chris Tilling), and the Gospel of Mark (by Holly J.
