Explore this site for select talks, debates, and research covering over a decade of my reflections on New Testament texts and perspectives. Although I have engaged several popular skeptics concerning the intellectual foundations of the Christian Faith, I am primarily a student of the language and development of the New Testament Gospels. Recent talks and research reflect this increased interest in the criticism and historical context of these sources.
My journey into Christianity was influenced by a patient mother and a skeptical father, whose odyssey from agnosticism to belief inspired me to combine reason and personal commitment in the exploration of the radical claims of a first century rabbi from Nazareth. I dedicate this site to Him whom they found in the pages of history and in the midst of profound transformation. And to my parents themselves, who loved me into His kingdom.
