Biblical Studies scholar, Dr. Gale Yee, was recently announced as the recipient of the 2015 Krister Stendahl Medal in Biblical Studies from the Graduate Theological Foundation. Krister Stendahl played an important role in the life of the Graduate Theological Foundation and was an early Honorary Fellow of the GTF as well as a Convocation Lecturer. An influential New Testament scholar, Dean of Harvard Divinity School, and Bishop of Stockholm, Krister Stendahl (1921-2008) represents a tradition of rigorous Biblical studies scholarship. It is in remembrance of him and in celebration of that tradition that the Graduate Theological Foundation established the Krister Stendahl Medal in Biblical Studies in 2009 to honor important Biblical studies scholars. We are proud to share the news that next year’s recipient of this award will be the illustrious Dr. Gale Yee of Episcopal Divinity School.
