Research Interests

My research to this point has focused primarily on the Pauline literature of the New Testament, though I have also written on the Synoptic Gospels (including issues related to the “historical Jesus”) and the Septuagint. More recently I have collaborated with Martin Westerholm on a book on key figures in the history of the Christian interpretation of Scripture.
