I am a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary (ThM) and Duke Divinity School (ThM). While I hope to begin PhD work before I die, I will die before I begin PhD work if I don’t take a break from school––so I’m taking a break.
I am married to Christy and we have three wonderful children. My academic interests have changed significantly during my second ThM. Previously I was interested in Gospel studies (canonical and non-canonical), Historical Jesus, Paul, Second Temple Judaism, and reconstructing the early Christ-following communities. While I am still fascinated in these areas of research, my interests have now turned to Christianity in the first three centuries. I am specifically interested in the diversity of Christianity during this time and what this diversity tells us about Christian origins and the formation of religious and social identity.
