Frank Stagg (theologian)

Frank Stagg, PhD, (1911-2001) was a Southern Baptist theologian, seminary professor, author, and pastor over a 50-year ministry career. He taught New Testament interpretation and Greek at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary from 1945 until 1964 and at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky from 1964 until 1978. His publications, recognitions and honors earned him distinction as one of the eminent theologians of the past century. When preaching or teaching, he read directly from the Greek New Testament, translating it into English as smoothly as if he were reading from an English translation. Other eminent theologians have honored him as a "Teaching Prophet."

No one...has ever taken the New Testament more seriously than Frank Stagg, who spent his entire life wrestling with it, paying the price in sweat and hours in an unrelenting quest to hear the message expressed in a language no longer spoken and directed toward a cultural context so foreign to the modern reader.

Dr. Malcolm Tolbert, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
