Ralph P. Martin (1925–2013) served as a scholar in residence at several schools, including Fuller Theological Seminary, Haggard School of Theology, and Azusa Pacific University. He was a professor emeritus of New Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary and an associate professor in biblical studies at the University of Sheffield in England.
Martin earned degrees at the University of London and King’s College after serving in the coal mines as a teenager during World War II. His dissertation on Philippians 2:5–11, Carmen Christi, is regarded as a touchstone on Paul’s hymn. He has written several commentaries and books, including Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching Ephesians, Colossians, and Philemon and the commentaries on 2 Corinthians and James, in the Word Biblical Commentary (WBC) (59 vols.) series, for which he served as New Testament editor.
