In Memoriam

Dr. Lee died Saturday at 3:30 am. He was 73. He served as professor of Old Testament for something like forty years. He was a rare kind of a man, in every way. It wouldn't be hard to do a laundry list of his positive attributes. More importantly, what we saw in him was the personification of "fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." He was surely a brilliant man, but what we remember instead is a great spiritual legacy. A person wouldn't have to have a series of long conversations with him to know this. He taught God's word and mostly those were the words from his mouth. What was remarkable about this, however, was not his profound skill of oratory. Instead, it was this: That the scripture was deeply personal to him. I've never seen anything like this and I fear I may never see it again. He may not have wanted me to go on about him like this. But, if I insisted he would be honored, deeply honored at the suggestion that he leaves such an incredible legacy of faith. If he would be remembered at all, he would want to be remembered like that.
