On January 24, 2019, Dr. Robert “Bob” Mounce passed away in Seattle, Washington, surrounded by his family. You can read his obituary and some reflections by his eldest son, Bill.

Mounce was president emeritus of Whitworth University, served as an important biblical commentator (especially on the book of Revelation in the NICNT series), and was a Bible translator (involved early on in the translation of the NIV and on the first translation committee of the ESV—where he served with Bill, author of the widely used Basics of Biblical Greek Grammar).

In 2011, filmmaker Shelby Mack captured a brief snapshot of Mounce as he cared for his beloved first wife, Jean, through her extended illness. At her death in 2012, they had been married for 60 years. The video above is a beautiful testimony to spending one’s final years poured out in Christ-centered love for another.
