Assistant Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology
Jared serves as assistant professor of New Testament Theology and Biblical Theology at Bethlehem College and Seminary, a post he took up in 2020. Before coming to Bethlehem, Jared served as pastor for discipleship and pastoral-training at CrossWay Community Church (Bristol, WI) and assistant professor of New Testament at Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary (Allen Park, MI). Jared received his Ph.D. in New Testament from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School under the supervision of D. A. Carson.
Jared loves teaching and preaching the Bible and training others to do the same. He loves thinking and talking about how the Bible fits together and how we fit into the Bible’s big story. Jared’s written articles and reviews for several publications and published three books, most recently Biblical Theology according to the Apostles: How the Earliest Christians Told Israel’s Story (IVP, 2020), a book he wrote with two of his childhood friends. He’s served on the editorial board for Themelios and Trinity Journal and is presently a member of ETS & IBR. Best of all, he’s been a Christian for 30 years, married to his best friend Charisse for nearly 20 years, and has been telling dad jokes for 15 years. Jared, Charisse, and their three children—Asher (15), Jude (13), and Haven (11)—live in Arden Hills and attend Bethlehem’s North Campus.
