Johann Albrecht Bengel (1687-1752), German Lutheran theologian and biblical scholar, began his studies at Tubingen. He was appointed professor in charge of a theological training school at Denkendorf in 1713 and remained there for twenty-eight years. During this time he produced his most important works--a Greek text of the New Testament with an "Apparatus criticus" (1734) and his Gnomon Novi Testamenti (1742). Other works by Bengel include Erkrte Offenbarung Johannis (1740; Eng. transl. by John Robertson, London, 1757), Ordo temporum (1741), and Cyclus sive de anno magno consideratio (1745).
