Tribute to A. T. Robertson (reblogged)

Co-Authors Andreas J. Kostenberger, Benjamin L. Merkle, and Robert L. Plummer, offer a tribute (and some pretty great quotes) from the late great A.T. Robertson which is drawn from their forthcoming book, Going Deeper with New Testament Greek: An Intermediate Study of the Grammar and Syntax of the New Testament, which will be released May 2016.

Here it is in part:

Archibald Thomas Robertson (Nov. 6, 1863–Sept. 24, 1934) was born near Chatham, VA, where he spent the first twelve years of his life before moving to a farm in NC. At the age of twelve (March 1876) he received Christ as his Lord and Savior and was baptized later that year. Four years later, at the age of sixteen, he was licensed to preach. He received his M.A. from Wake Forest College, Wake Forest, NC (1885) and his Th.M. from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY (1888). Shortly after entering seminary, his Greek professor (and future father-in-law), John Albert Broadus, noticed his linguistic skills, and Robertson soon became his teaching aide. In 1890, Robertson was elected Assistant Professor of New Testament Interpretation. Robertson would teach at Southern for forty-four years until his death in 1934.
