Marinus (Rien) de Jonge, Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Early Christian Literature at Leiden University from 1966 to 1990, passed away on 26 December 2016. He had turned 91 on 9 December of that year.I just found out about the passing of Professor De Jonge a few days ago. I never met him, but I followed his work, especially his many contributions to the study of the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs. Requiescat in pace.
