My day job is Associate Professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. I primarily teach Greek language and exegesis, but I am also interested in Jesus studies and the Gospels. Philosophical hermeneutics is also part of my regular teaching load, and I teach several online courses each semester. I am keenly interested in proper, accurate, biblical interpretation, hence my desire to write in this vein publicly. Nights and weekends are filled with family, karate (shout out to Mr. Proctor!), and lots of church activities. I teach an adult Bible class regularly at Trinity Bible Church, so if you are in the Dallas metroplex and looking for a church home, I'd love to have you visit.

I have decided to reorganize the site essentially as a collection of mini-blogs, each devoted to particular areas of interest:

  • Exegesis is broadly defined and covers exegesis, interpretation, scholarship, Greek, and anything else related to my role as a professional exegete.
  • Tech covers all of my technical, geeky interests, often related to exegesis and scholarship, sometimes tangentially so, occasionally not at all.
  • Books also is broadly defined. This covers books I am reading, books I am writing, and anything else related to writing and publication.
