Faculty of Divinity



I am a PhD candidate in Divinity (New Testament) at Jesus College and Affiliated Lecturer in Greek at the Faculty of Divinity. I received a BA in Humanities and an MA in Biblical Languages and Literature from Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC.

My PhD thesis, supervised by Simon Gathercole, explores cosmology in The Letter to the Hebrews. Instead of pitting the vertical (spatial) and horizontal (temporal) dimensions of Hebrews' cosmology against each other, I am investigating the progress of cosmic space through time. My aim is to provide a robust and nuanced account of Hebrews' cosmological worldview in conversation with other ancient cosmologies to better locate Hebrews within its ancient idealogical marketplace.

In addition to historical-critical research, I am also interested in the challenges and opportunities of bringing theology and biblical studies into conversation. My theological interests often revolve around theophany, theology proper, and epistemology.


• The Letter to the Hebrews

• Cosmology

• Theologies of space, time, and matter

• Divine Embodiment
