Mark Dankof Remembers Samir Massouh

It seems significant that on the very day I am informed of the passing of my friend and teaching mentor, Dr. Samir Massouh of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Trinity International University, I’m preparing for a third discussion of Biblical eschatology on the Republic Broadcasting Network (RBN) later tonight on a show called “In Plain Sight.”

Master the Content and Memorize the Relevant.

When I consider my activity this week with “The Dankof Report” for ACH coming from London, my recent conversation with Jonas E. Alexis at VT, or my latest work with the Tehran Times, my time as a student of Hebrew and Old Testament with Samir in suburban Chicago seems so very long ago. As a matter of fact, the years have simply flown by. Yet my memories of him decades ago remain as fresh as our occasional on-line exchanges in these last several years on social media during his Herculean battle with esophageal cancer. He has finally lost that battle, paradoxically to experience the ultimate triumph over death and entrance into the Kingdom of God in a world without end, because of his personal knowledge and faith in the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9).

He is greatly missed. I shall see him again.
