Sad News: J. K. Elliott (1943–2024)

THE ETC BLOG: J. K. Elliott (1943–2024) (Peter Gurrey).

This memorial notice focuses on Professor Elliott's extensive work on New Testament textual criticism. But he is also well known for his foundational volume of New Testament Apocrypha.

J. K. Elliott, The Apocryphal New Testament. A Collection of Apocryphal Christian Literature in an English Translation (OUP, orig. pub. 1993)
There has been much work on New Testament Apocrypha since then, notably by Tony Burke and his colleagues, but Elliott's volume is still in print and is still widely consulted.
