Dr Leon Morris – Hero of the Faith

…ity with first class honours, followed by his Masters of Theology in 1946. Leon Morris accepted the invitation to be the Vice Principal of Ridley College, Melbourne, in 1945. He took time out in 1950-51 to study in Cambridge for his Ph.D. and turned this later into the book The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross.

Remember your leaders – Dr Leon Morris

…vative reading of critical issues in the Gospel had scholarly credibility. Leon Morris influenced me with his commentaries. His careful work in 1 Corinthians and the Thessalonian letters helped shaped my understanding of those Pauline letters. But his commentary on Revelation played a unique role in turning me in a new direction. If memory serves me correctly, this was the first scholarly commentary I read on the book of Revelation. Up to that poi…

Leon Morris and the University College

…environment for a young Christian. Four years of digesting the sermons of Leon Morris, Keith Cole, David Williams and others is one of the greatest gifts that God has given me. The task of the sermon was invariably to explore with faith and rigour, what was God’s message for us and what might be our response. It was to sort out the chaff from the wheat, casting aside doubtful interpretations, regardless of how popular they might be. Who could for…

Leon Morris and Me

…the least likely thing to happen. There were lots of arguments like that. Leon Morris wrote five books on the atonement, with numerous articles published in theological and Bible dictionaries as well as journals. Along with John’s Gospel, it was one of his favourite areas of scholarship. But curiously, very few of the new writers on the atonement made any reference to his work. Even more curiously, if they had bothered to consult him, they would…

Seasoned, Reasoned Evangelical Scholarship

…ching and writing on John’s Gospel, there were many times when I turned to Leon Morris’s work alongside works by C. K. Barrett, Raymond Brown, Rudolf Schnackenburg, my Doktorvater, and others. In fact, I found his writings on the Gospel to be among the most thorough and valuable. I still remember the surge of excitement I felt when, as a Ph.D. student in the early 1990s, I came upon a highly prized used copy of Morris’s Studies in the Fourth Gospe…

Leon Morris – a personal recollection

…e given in two ex- army huts and the Babbage room. The new chapel had been Leon’s priority and he took me to see it. On entry, one’s eye was immediately drawn the the central pulpit from which the Bible was read. It was a statement about the purpose of the college. The other feature of college life which we discussed was the residential university college which Leon had worked hard to have accredited. As Principal he presided at the weekday formal…

In gratitude for Leon Morris

…irely new experience for the British visitors. As we enjoyed our breakfast Leon said to me something like:‘Howard, I reckon you’ve never had an Easter like this before!’ I replied, ‘No, I haven’t’ (and privately I thought that it was simply another avant-garde expression of Antipodean Christian culture), to which he said ‘Nor have I!’ Leon was by then retired, having gained his first undergraduate degree in the year that I was born (1934).

Chinese memory of Leon Morris

…familiar with. As a young seminarian, I owed a great debt to the works of Leon Morris. His exposition on “propitiation” in Romans made an indelible impression on me. Now that many of his works, including his Tyndale commentaries and New Testament Theology have been translated into Chinese, his evangelical and balanced views will continue to have an impact on the Chinese theological scene for many years to come.
