Passing of Abraham Malherbe

I just learned from Yale University that Prof. Abraham Malherbe passed away unexpectedly at the age of 82. His Anchor Bible commentary on 1-2 Thessalonians is great on Graeco-Roman background and social aspects of early Christianity. Malherbe along with Wayne Meeks and Leander Keck formed a great triumvirate of NT scholars at Yale in the 1970s.

    Does anyone pass away unexpectedly at 82? Malherbe was a world-class scholar, he will be missed.
