about me

what I do for a living

My official title is Professor of New Testament at United Theological Seminary.

I'm the executive editor of the Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus.

I've written several books, essays, dictionary entries, etc. Some of these are featured on this website.

more important matters

I’m married to Sarah. She's my favorite. We have two pretty okay kids. We live in Dayton with a dog who won't stop looking at me.

I am irrationally devoted to the San Francisco Giants (grew up in the North Bay).

My favorite books are written by J.R.R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien, and George R.R. Martin. My favorite science-fiction novel is The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell.

My favorite (only) Halloween costume is Moonlight Graham. The older incarnation, not the time-traveling rookie.

I'm writing a sci-fi novel. I plan to have it finished in 2024.
