Farrer, Austin Marsden

(1904–68)
Primarily a philosophical theologian at Oxford; but Farrer turned his attention to NT studies and enjoyed a considerable influence as lecturer and preacher. He argued that in place of the Q hypothesis it is more reasonable to hold that Luke used Matthew. Farrer wrote on the gospel of Mark, believing the author to be a creative theologian who interpreted the work of Jesus in the light of the OT by means of a complicated scheme of typology. Writing particularly on Revelation [[➝ revelation]] he maintained that religious truth can best be communicated to human intelligences through images.
