About me

Location Lancaster, Pennslylvania, United States
Introduction I am a husband, the proud father of three grown children, and the proud grandfather of five. I received the Th.M. and Ph.D. degrees in New Testament from Dallas Theological Seminary, and have taught New Testament, Theology, Greek, and Hermeneutics at Dallas Seminary and Lancaster Bible College. My particular interests are the Gospels and Pauline epistles, with a specialization in the apostle's theology of justification, on which I wrote my doctoral dissertation. I am committed to both a theological AND critical interpretation of Scripture in the belief that this highly diverse collection of ancient books is unified by a coherent story-line that has reached its climax in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, Jewish Messiah and Lord over all. My hometown is Philadelphia, a much-misunderstood city that I remain convinced is America's finest. My love of sports and my hometown have coalesced in a fanatical devotion to its professional sports franchises, particularly the Phillies and Eagles, about whom I am sure I will have much to say on this blog.
Interests New Testament criticism and exegesis, theology, sports, music, Philadelphia, Britain, photography, history, architecture
