Kocher, Johann Christoph, Dd
Kocher, Johann Christoph, D.D., a German theologian, was born at Lobenstein April 23,1699. He was successively rector of the gymnasium at Osnabriick, superintendent at Brunswick, and professor of theology at Jena, and died there Sept. 21, 1772. He published a continuation of Wolfs Curce Philologicae, under the title Analecta Philologica et Exegetica in Quatuor Evangelia (Altenburg, 1766, 4to). "It supplies," says Orme, " some of the desiderata of Wolf's work, and brings down the account of the sentiments of the modern writers on the Gospels to the period of its publication" (Biblioth. Bib. p.276). For a list of all his works, see Doring, Gelehrte Theol. Deutschlands, ii, 147 sq.
