George W. Knight III (1931-2021)


Puritan Board Doctor
Just read about the death of Dr. Knight, who passed into glory today (10/11/21) at the age of 89. He would have been 90 on December 16th. He died at his home in Lake Wylie, South Carolina.

His commentary on the Pastoral Epistles (Eerdmans, 1992) is just terrific. A friend of mine, who studied under Dr. Knight at Covenant Seminary, told me that that commentary was the product of a lifetime of study and teaching on the Pastorals. And it's elegantly written.

There's one more Premil in Heaven now. We're taking over!

He'll be missed.

Knight's death is the second death of a contributor to the series The New International Greek Testament Commentary (NIGTC) this year. Richard N. Longenecker, the author of a massive commentary on Romans in that same series (published in 2016), died last June 7, at 90.

Our presbytery opened the meeting today with a time of open prayer, in which a minister stood and prayed for his family.
