GRTS Professor Tim Gombis and CU Alum Scot McKnight Collaborate on Published Work

News June 20, 2016

Grand Rapids Theological Seminary professor Dr. Timothy Gombis and Cornerstone University graduate Dr. Scot McKnight (B.A. ’76) were recently published in an edited volume entitled “The Apostle Paul and the Christian Life: Ethical and Missional Implications of the New Perspective.”

The book, published in March by Baker Publishing Group, includes insights from world-renowned scholars including James D. G. Dunn, N. T. Wright and Bruce Longenecker. The book focuses on the significance of the new perspective on Paul, an approach that seeks to reinterpret Paul and his letters in regards to first-century Judaism. These leading New Testament scholars address issues and questions surrounding the Apostle Paul and his understanding of the Christian life.

The introduction of the volume is written by Dr. Scot McKnight along with Joseph B. Modica. Dr. McKnight is a highly recognized speaker, author, professor and blogger. He is an acclaimed leader when it comes to subjects such as the historical Jesus, early Christianity and the New Testament.

Dr. McKnight earned his Ph.D. from the University of Nottingham. He is a member of the Society of Biblical Literature and the Society for New Testament Studies.

Dr. Timothy G. Gombis is associate professor of New Testament at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. His contribution to the volume, entitled, “Participation in the New Creation People of God in Christ by the Spirit,” focuses on Paul’s reflection on the Christian life, the church and the new-creation people of God. Dr. Gombis earned his Ph.D. at the University of St. Andrews School of Divinity. He is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society, the Society of Biblical Literature, Tyndale Fellowship and the Institute for Biblical Research.

Dr. McKnight describes Dr. Gombis’ work stating, “Tim Gombis’ chapter is that rare example of courage to let the Bible say what the Bible says, to let Paul say what Paul says and to do so in a way that is profoundly respectful of the Christian tradition. Tim’s scholarship is impeccable and his concern for the church unmatched.”
