Journeywomen


Dec 14, 2020

On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, we get to talk about the story of the New Testament with Dr. Brad Matthews of Covenant Seminary. If you’ve spent time thinking about how the 27 books of the New Testament with various authors work together to communicate one congruent message, this is the convo for you, my friends! You’re going to walk away from this conversation with tools for better understanding and studying the New Testament and with your heart’s affection stirred for Jesus. Dr. Brad Matthews has been a member of the faculty at Covenant Theological Seminary in the New Testament department since 2008. He began his professional life as a mechanical engineer before attending Covenant to complete an MDiv degree. During his time as a seminary student, he served first as a pastoral intern in youth ministries and then as a director of campus ministry. Following that, he pursued PhD studies at the University of Durham in England while also serving as an adjunct lecturer in both Greek and Hebrew at Cranmer Hall. He completed his thesis on the nature of Christian Maturity, which involved an interdisciplinary evaluation of modern perspectives and theories using a biblical theology of maturity.
