For my father arthur william robinson who began at Cambridge just one hundred years ago to learn from Lightfoot, Westcott and Hort, whose wisdom and scholarship remain the fount of so much in this book and my mother mary beatrice robinson who died as it was being finished and shared and cared to the end.

Remember that through your parents you were born;
What can you give back to them that equals their gift to you? Ecclus.7.28.

All Souls Day, 1975

PREFACE

I really have no more to say than thank you – to my long-suffering secretary Stella Haughton and her husband; to Professor C. F. D. Moule from whose New Testament seminar so small a seed has produced so monstrous a manuscript, on which he gave such kindly judgment; to my friends, Ed Ball, Gerald Bray, Chip Coakley, Paul Hammond and David McKie, who advised or corrected at many points; and finally to Miss Jean Cunningham of the SCM Press for all her devoted attention to tedious detail.
