I am not sure who is THEE foremost scholar, I myself is trying to find that person, but I know several men who are today's foremost biblical scholars. Their names are N.T Wright & James Dunn. These guys are PREEMINENT in biblical scholarship. It would be absolutely great for you to study them. But, before you study them, you yourself must do your own due diligence. You yourself MUST get an understanding of Greek, culture & customs of the bible, as well as exegesis and hermenuetics. THEN, you will do fine to study someone's elses theology, such as heavy hitters like N.T Wright & James Dunn. Both of these men are born again christians, and that truly helps.
