D Edmond Hiebert

D. Edmond Hiebert (1928-1995) was professor emeritus of New Testament at Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary in Fresno, California. Hiebert received his Th.M. from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1939 and his Th.D. from there in 1942.

"Upon completion of his doctoral studies, Hiebert returned to Hillsboro, Kansas, where had been appointed Professor of New Testament at Tabor College. Soon thereafter the Hieberts rejoined the Mennonite Brethren Church. Hiebert contracted undulant fever in 1944, from which he nearly died. Several months after his apparent recovery, it became evident that he was losing his hearing, and by 1946 Hiebert was completely deaf. Following a recurrence of his illness, Hiebert resumed teaching at Tabor in fall of 1947. In 1955 Hiebert joined the faculty of the newly-established Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary in Fresno, California. He served as a professor of New Testament there from 1955 to 1975. In 1975 he was named Professor Emeritus at MBBS, and continued to teach on a part-time basis there until 1985. Despite his deafness, Hiebert was a successful and respected lecturer in New Testament studies during his long career at Tabor and MBBS." [1]
