Adolph Saphir

1831-1891. Presbyterian minister. Born in Budapest, Hungary, the son of a Jewish merchant, he and the rest of his family were converted to Christianity by the Jewish mission of the Church of Scotland. Deciding to enter the ministry, he studied at the Free Church College, Edinburgh, and the universities of Aberdeen and Glasgow (M.A., 1854). He served as a missionary to the Jews in Hamburg in 1854, as minister of English Presbyterian churches at South Shields, Greenwich, Notting Hill, and Belgrave, London. Throughout his lifetime he maintained a great interest in the conversion of Jews and other non-Christians in Europe, serving in many capacities in various missionary agencies. His writings include Christ and the Scriptures, (1864), Expository Lectures on the Epistle to the Hebrews (1874-76), and The Divine Unity of Scripture (1892).
