Loren T. Stuckenbruck is the Richard J. Dearborn Professor of New Testament Studies at Princeton Theological Seminary. Previously, he held the B.F. Westcott Chair in Biblical Studies at Durham University, Department of Theology and Religion. He has also taught at the University of Kiel, Germany. He has received research fellowships from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Fulbright Foundation. He is, or has been, editor for many journals, including Zeitschrift f. die neutesstamentliche Wissenschaft, Journal for the Study of the Pseudepigrapha, Journal of Biblical Literature, New Testament Studies, and Dead Sea Discoveries. He is also editor of several series, including Themes in Bibical Narrative (Brill), Commentaries on Early Jewish Literature (Walter de Gruyter), and Library of Second Temple Studies (Continuum). Stuckenbruck’s research, published in several monographs and more than a hundred academic articles, focuses on Second Temple Judasim and Early Christianity and reflects both historical and theological interests. His work centers on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Enoch literature, and writings of the New Testament. His language teaching interests include Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, and Ge’ez. Themes he commonly addresses include theological anthropology, the problem of evil, demonology, angelology, eschatology, cosmology, monothesistic belief, and text-critical editions. He also has a particular interest in collaboration with the Middle East (Israel, Egypt), Ethiopia, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
