About the Author

Raymond Edward Brown (May 22, 1928–August 8, 1998) was a Sulpician priest and Bible scholar. He taught for many years at Saint Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore and was professor emeritus of biblical studies at the Union Theological Seminary in New York. Over his lifetime he was awarded more than dozen honorary doctorates from American and European universities and was commended by Pope Paul VI for his “learning, prudence, and Catholic regard for the Magisterium of the Church.” Brown authored many works, including three books in the Anchor Yale Bible series on the Gospels and Epistles of John.
