One of the great Biblical Greek scholars of the Twentieth Century (and probably any century since the first), Bruce Metzger, is dead at age 93. Instrumental in the translation of the New Revised Standard Version, he was also the author of numerous books. His Text of the New Testament and The Canon of the New Testament are invaluable, and his little book on Revelation, Breaking the Code, is one of the most useful guides I have on that most difficult of Biblical books.
