Passing of Sean Freyne

Passing of Sean Freyne August 7, 2013

Larry Hurtado reports the sad passing of Prof. Sean Freyne.

Freyne was an expert on Galilee and its relevance to NT studies. My favourite quote from his work was:

‘Either we accept that the early followers of Jesus had some interest in and memory of the historical figure of Jesus as they began to proclaim the good news about him, or we must abandon the process entirely’.[1]
