Jim West on Bultmann

Jim West has been writing a number of lovely posts today in memoriam of Bultmann who died thirty years ago on the 30th of July, 1976. Be sure to read them all:

In Memoriam Rudolf Karl Bultmann. Did you know that ‘at the conclusion of the service in the Marburg Church he attended, he stood at the back holding the offering box for the poor’?

Rudolf Bultmann’s Breadth of Knowledge

A Lesser Known Side of Bultmann


Bultmann’s Books (though I was surprised not to see mention of the two-volume Theology of the NT)

His Theology of the NT is often described as his "magnum opus". But I think that's very wrong: his true magnum opus is the great commentary on the Gospel of John, and it's in this book that Bultmann most profoundly develops his interpretation of the New Testament kerygma.

Well, that is a joy for the future! I haven't read his commentary on John.
