John McLintock was born in Philadelphia in 1814. He attended the University of Pennsylvania, and graduated in 1836. He served as a professor of mathematics at Dickinson College from 1840 to 1848. From 1848 to 1856, he became editor of the Methodist Quarterly Review, and for a time, served as pastor of St. Paul’s Methodist Church of New York City. He was also instrumental in the founding of Drew Theological Seminary, and served as its first professor and president. Both his pastoral pursuits and his scholarly ambitions made him a key figure in nineteenth century American Methodism. John McLintock died in 1870.
James Strong was born in 1822, and graduated from Wesleyan University in 1844. He became a professor of ancient languages at Troy University, and published multiple works on the harmony of the Gospels and on the Greek text of the New Testament. In 1861, he became Professor of Exegetical Theology at Drew University, where he remained for twenty-seven years.
Strong’s famous Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible first appeared in 1890 and has remained in print ever since. The numbering system he devised has made the original languages available to English-only Bible readers. Strong also edited the volumes on Daniel and Esther in Lange's Commentary and served on the American Bible Revision Committee. He died in 1894.
