Dwight Pentecost was nearing seventy years old when I had him as a professor in the early 1980s. And he kept teaching and teaching at Dallas Seminary, all the way into his late nineties. He recently went to be with the Lord having just passed his ninety-ninth birthday!
There are many distinct things I recall about Dr. P (his nickname). There was his humor. There was his genuine care for students which I experienced firsthand. And there was his reverence for God’s Word. He taught us through it line by line with no notes, except those that were already in his Bible.
