Victor Roland Gold was born September 18, 1924 in Garden City, Kansas. He graduated from Wartburg College, Waverly, Iowa, in 1945 and from Wartburg Theological Seminary, Dubuque, Iowa, in 1946. He received his doctorate in Old Testament studies from John Hopkins University (1951), a student of William Foxwell Albright. He served congregations in Texas, Maryland and Michigan prior to his call as an Associate Professor of Old Testament at the Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, CA in 1956. He taught there for over 50 years. A student remembers that he opened his classes by saying, "I'm still doing this because I am still learning new ways of understanding the Bible-from you, my students." He died September 17, 2008, in Oakland, CA.
