About My Library

My print library is primarily comprised of texts related to Biblical studies, the Ancient Near East, Ancient Israel, the Greco-Roman world, ancient classical literature, ancient languages, Early Judaism, Christian Origins, later Christianity, philosophy, and history/historiography. The bulk of my collection is focused primarily on what could be referred to as "biblical studies," though I would prefer to characterize the subject matter as pertaining to the language, literature, and history of Ancient Israel, early Judaism, and Christian Origins.

About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in New Testament and Christian Origins at the University of Edinburgh. I have also completed doctoral coursework toward a Ph.D. in Religious Studies in Judaism and Christianity in Antiquity at Marquette University. I currently serve as a Religion Teacher at St. Anthony School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a private Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. For five years prior, I served as the Religion and Theology Specialist for the Educational Opportunity Program at Marquette University, a federal TRIO program to support first generation low income college students. I have served as a graduate teaching assistant and research assistant in the Department of Theology at Marquette. I have also studied at Tantur Ecumenical Institute of the University of Notre Dame in Jerusalem, Israel and the University of Oxford. My work has been published with Fortress Academic/Lexington Press and in the Journal for the Study of Paul and His Letters. My research interests include early Jewish apocalyptic and mystical traditions found within the reception and interpretation of scripture in the Second Temple period. My work seeks to demonstrate the integral role these traditions play in the study of Christian origins in the wider context of the ancient Mediterranean. The concentrations of my research in Judaism and Christianity in antiquity include the origins and development of deification and angelomorphic traditions, Messianism and "Christology," and apocalyptic eschatology and resurrection beliefs. My research agenda focuses on tracing these streams of tradition in Second Temple Jewish literature, Pauline literature and thought, Luke-Acts, and the exploration and (re)description of the "parting of the ways" between early Judaism and Christianity. My dissertation is tentatively entitled, "Resurrection and the Death of the Gods: Rival Jewish Reception of the Patriarchal Promises and the Argument of 1 Corinthians 15."
