Daniel is an excellent communicator and is passionate about relating the Bible to the culture in which we live.
Daniel is professor of New Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary, and a member of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL). His primary academic interests revolve around reading Jesus and Paul in their Jewish and Roman contexts as a first step toward understanding the canonical narrative of Scripture and enriching the theology of the church. He is especially interested in resolving the perceived tension between the life of Jesus, as presented in the Gospels, and Paul’s instructions in his letters.
His publications include articles in Journal of Biblical Literature, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, Catholic Biblical Quarterly, and Zeitschrift für Neues Testament. Daniel is also the author of Unlocking Romans: Resurrection and the Justification of God and Jesus Have I Loved, But Paul? A Narrative Approach to the Problem of Pauline Christianity. His present focus delves into the human Christology of the Synoptic Gospels. (A video of Daniel speaking on the topic of “Patriarchy and Worth” is here.)
Cost is $25 for the full conference.
