Matthew loves teaching students the biblical storyline that begins with creation and culminates in new creation; and he is passionate about helping students shape their identity and purpose in light of God’s story. Currently, his research, writing, and teaching focus on new creation, the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament, Lukan Christology, and environmental ethics. He is thrilled to be part of the Christ-centered mission of Jessup, to work alongside knowledgeable, humble, and passionate colleagues, and to serve such incredible students.
