Harold Hoehner passed away today

I just read that Harold Hoehner passed away today.

I have enjoyed his commentary on Ephesians, and I had the opportunity to hear him speak at the 2006 Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society. The topic of his speech was “Can a Woman be a Pastor-Teacher?” His speech prompted me to write a short series on the topic of gifting vs. office:

Part 1 (introduction)
Part 2 (Hoehner’s designation of “office”)
Part 3 (Hoehner’s designation of “gifting”)
Part 4 (My discussion of the topic with a summary of Hoehner’s view)

Those who knew him, worked with him, and studied under him described him like this: “Most of all Harold has shown us what it means to be a man of God, committed to Christ and His gospel, and reflecting the fruit of the Spirit over a lifetime of faithful service.”

    Mr. Hoehner’s article is a most interesting read regardless of where one might think they stand on this issue.
