Today we remember and honor Rev. Dr. Cain Hope Felder ’69, who was an American biblical scholar and ordained elder in the United Methodist Church. Dr. Felder was a longtime professor of New Testament language and literature at Howard University School of Divinity and editor of The Journal of Religious Thought. His research was reknown for having called attention to the presence of Black people in the Old and New Testaments. Remembered by friends and family for his famous storytelling, he also authored several publications, including “Troubling Biblical Waters: Race, Class, and Family” and “The Original African Heritage Study Bible.”
