Greek Language

Teaching Greek grammar has been the core of my teaching career. That first love gave me the affectionate nickname “Dr. Koine,” which I later took as the name of my website. The texts I developed started out with a grammar and workbook system that later evolved into two textbooks, a primer and an intermediate text. Click the image for details.
The Book of Revelation

The first Revelation book was a brainstorm by a group of my former students now pursuing their own teaching careers. They conscripted me to be the editor for a series of essays on the book of Revelation. The second book is a commentary, but actually two books in one. The first part of the commentary includes a crucial history of interpretation of Revelation as background that students find fascinating and enlightening as they struggle to comprehend this enigma of the canon and my “passion millennial” view.

Commentary on Acts

For years, students in my English classes on Acts have been challenged by my different take on the character of Paul in Acts, even though Paul is Luke’s hero. My narrative approach used in this commentary, along with close reading of the text, generates startling conclusions about Paul's last visit to Jerusalem. Click the image for details.
Pauline Theology: Divine Wrath

My dissertation on divine wrath in Paul never was published until the end of my teaching career. I realized in writing my commentary on Romans that I could not say what I had to say on Rom 1:18–32 fully enough in a commentary without the research of my dissertation as a foundation. The essence of the matter of divine wrath in Pauline theology is most certainly not what most everyone thinks when they conjure the wrath of God. Those wrong-headed ideas will distort an exegesis of Romans 1.
Commentary on Romans

My magnum opus at the end of my career. My thesis is simple: Romans is all about Israel. This thesis challenges traditional Protestant exegesis in surprising ways. We have to reimagine what we think Paul means by the “Israel of God” (Gal 6:16), because supersessionism just is not going to cut the Pauline mustard. Click the image for details.
