W. Harold Mare (1918-2004) was a founding trustee of Covenant
Theological Seminary, St Louis, Missouri in 1963 and served as
Professor of New Testament until his retirement in 1984. After his
retirement, Dr. Mare continued to teach as an emeritus professor at
Covenant Seminary until his death in 2004 while doing
archaeological excavations in Jordan.
New Testament backgrounds remained Dr. Mare's passion throughout life because of his commitment to understand and confirm the truths of Scripture. His observant eyes read forgotten history in the dust and dirt, in the shards and debris, that still powerfully evidence the reliability of God's Word.-- Bryan Chapell
