[Synoptic-L] OFF TOPIC: Anecdotes
- At the last SBL, while listening intently to Earl Ellis and Donald
Hagner reminisce about their teachers, it struck me that it might be fun
to put together a book of anecdotes on the "greats" whom we have know
and at whose feet we sat as students.
So I'm soliciting anecdotes about things your teachers did or said that
reveals their character and personality or is just memorable in some
As an example, there is the story about A.D. Nock who used to work in
his study in the nude. One day the cleaning lady came in and discovered
Nock in the buff. She exclaimed "Good God!. And Nock replied "No,
madame, just one of his humble, obedient servants".
I'd be grateful if you'd send me OFF LIST your tales of, and memories
about, your teachers.
