David Noel Freedman (1922-2008)

David Noel Freedman, one of the world's most prolific and influential Bible scholars, and also my teacher at the University of California, San Diego, passed away yesterday. He was 85 years old, and he was one of the hardest working people I've ever met. I appreciate all that he taught me. Rest in peace, Professor Freedman, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

I'm sorry to hear about his passing, both for you, as well as the field. I remember when my mentor passed away, it's an odd feeling of a generation lost.
