Dr. Timothy A. Gabrielson

Dr. Timothy A. Gabrielson was pursuing degrees in math and economics at the Colorado School of Mines when he felt called to ministry. After graduating, Tim made one of the least practical and yet best decisions of his life: dedicating himself to the study of the Bible. He earned an M.A. in Biblical Studies (New Testament) at Denver Seminary and a Ph.D. in Judaism and Christianity in Antiquity at Marquette University. While studying for his master’s degree, he also served as a pastor at First Baptist Church of Golden, Colo.

Tim’s first book, Tailoring Scripture with Citation Formulae, is forthcoming with Lexington Books, and he has published articles in Journal for the Study of the New Testament, Currents in Biblical Research, and Christian Scholar’s Review, among others. His research interests include the early Christian use of Scripture, the figures of Adam and Eve in Jewish thought of the Greek and Roman eras, and the Jewish heritage of Christianity. As a teacher, Tim hopes students come to love the Bible and the God of the Bible.

A native of Colorado, Tim loves the mountains and roots for all Denver sports teams. He also enjoys running, traveling, and reading fiction. Tim is married to his lovely, redheaded wife, Amy. She is far more fun than he is, but he tries to keep up. They have two young sons, and he mostly fails to keep up with them.
