Associate Professor of Biblical Studies
Hello. Welcome to my faculty page. Here you'll find some information about me, my work, and some of the things that make me tick.
My interest in Biblical Studies was born early on in my life. The Hebrew Bible attracted me even as a teenager. Fortunately, I have been able to make it my life's work to spend my waking hours studying the Hebrew Bible. I'm particularly drawn to the prophetic material, the history of the ancient Near East, especially ancient Israel, and the study of ancient languages. At the School of Theology I have taught introductory courses in the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible), and Hebrew language. Elsewhere, I have taught the whole gamut of the biblical canon, including Greek.
I'm also interested in hermeneutics (the science/art of interpretation) and even (I hope specialists won't hold that against me) in liberation theology.
In my spare time I like to watch movies, and I also play the cavaquinho, a four-string instrument used to play Brazilian popular music.
If you want to get in touch with me, please drop me a note.
