I have been lecturing in Hebrew and Old Testament at Union Theological College since 2002.
My MTh was on “The Theological Unity of the Book of the Twelve”. In my PhD, I considered how John Calvin, Martin Luther and (the wonderfully named) Theodore of Mopsuestia expounded the prophetic book of Zechariah in relation to the person and work of Christ. My current research interests include the christological interpretation of the Old Testament, the use of the Old Testament by the New Testament, and typological interpretation.
I have been serving as Minister in Mersey Street Presbyterian Church in East Belfast since 2002. My college involvement and church life inter–connect, and each fuels and adds vitality to the other.
I am married to Anna and together we have five children – Julia, Jessica, Noah, Lily and Asher. Asher is Hebrew for happy or blessed.
Apart from spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, chess and volunteering with Olio, an organisation which gives me the opportunity to share food with my local community.
