Theodore B. Hax, 1904–1965

Theodore Benedict Hax was born in Ashville, Ohio, May 18, 1904, the son of Pastor Fred B. and Carrie Hax. He was baptized into the Christian Faith in June, 1904 and confirmed his baptismal vows in the Rite of Confirmation at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Massillon, Ohio in 1919.

He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Capital University in 1927 and his Bachelor of Divinity degree from the Evangelical Lutheran Seminary, Columbus, Ohio, in 1930. He did further graduate work at the University of Edinburgh in 1930 and received his Master of Theology degree from Talbot Theological Seminary in 1956.

As a Pastor in The American Lutheran Church he has served the following parishes: Oceanside, Long Island, N. Y., 1931; Faith, Youngstown, Ohio, 1931–35; Emmanuel, Columbus, Ohio, 1935–47; Mt. Calvary, L. A., 1950–59. From 1947 to 1949 he served as a teacher at the Lutheran Bible Institute, L. A., and since 1960 he has been a teacher at California Lutheran Bible School, L. A., and has been an active participating member of Our Savior’s Congregation.

Well known as a profound and thorough student of the Bible, Pastor Hax had conducted Bible studies and preached in congregations throughout the nation and across the seas as time and physical strength have made it possible to proclaim the Word of Truth he loved so dearly. He has also written a well known column “Signs of the Times” which appeared monthly for several years in the magazine “Evangelize.”

In 1931 he was united in Holy Matrimony with Yula Zell. To this marriage three children were born: Fritz, Gretchen, and Theodore. Besides his wife and children, he is survived by two brothers: Charles, L. A., Ernest, Victoria, Texas and one sister, Ruth Nelson, Massillon, Ohio.

“Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your Master” Matt. 25:23.

Progress Report On Our National Meeting

The scheduled time for our two day meeting at King’s College, beginning at 1:00 P.M. on December 26, is perhaps less than commodious, taking most of us away from our home and fireside on Christmas day. This awkwardness results from the often expressed desire of many of the ETS members to attend the sessions of the Society for Biblical Literature and Exegesis later in the week, at least in the years when the meetings of SBLE are reasonably accessible.

Despite our starting handicap, the program committee has been gratified at the response thus far in the submittal of topics for presentation...
