Ross Wagner (Ph.D., Duke University) has taught New Testament at Princeton Theological Seminary for the past 15 years and is moving to a new post at Duke Divinity School in the fall of 2013. His scholarship focuses on early Jewish and Christian interpretations of Scripture, the Septuagint, and Pauline theology. In collaboration with Darrell Guder, he regularly offers courses on missional hermeneutics. Ross was for several years part of the pastoral team of a missional church in north-suburban Chicago; most recently he served as an elder of a small, growing congregation in Princeton. Ross and his wife, Ronda, homeschool their four children, who keep them delightfully busy and continually learning.
