Scheibel, Johann Gottfried

a Lutheran theologian of Germany, was born at Breslau, September 16, 1783. In 1811 he was professor of theology at the university of his native place, but was deposed from his office in 1832 on account of his connection with the Separated Lutherans (q.v.), of whom he became a leader. Scheibel retired to Nuremberg, and died in 1842. He wrote, Observationes Criticae et Exegeticae ad Vaticinia Haggaei (Breslau, 1822): Das Abendmahl des Herrn (1823): Actenmassige Geschichte der neuesten Unternehmungen einer Union zwischen der reformirten und lutherischen Kirche (Leipsic, 1834, 2 volumes): Communionbuch (1827).
