About the Speaker
Prior to Professor Loren Stuckenbruck's move to Princeton in July of 2009, he held the B.F. Westcott Chair of Biblical Studies at the Durham University in England from 2003. Both prestigious Chairs, Dearborn and Westcott, held by Professor Stuckenbruck represent the high quality of scholarship that he has produced in his career thus far.
Professor Stuckenbruck is the editor of several scholarly journals among those: The Journal for the Study of Pseudepigrapha, the Journal of Biblical Literature, the Journal of New Testament Studies; in addition, he is the editor for the Walter de Gruyter Commentary Series on Early Jewish Literature.
Professor Stuckenbruck has written and presented extensively on a broad range of topics related to the NT, Second Temple Period Jewish Literature, biblical interpretation in the early Church, and more recently on the Septuagint. More specifically, his primary research interests are the Apocalypse of John, apocalyptic literature, the Dead Sea Scrolls, Demonology and the Problem of Evil, Enochic Literature, and the origins of Christology.
Some of his latest written contributions include a commentary on 1 Enoch 91-108 published by de Gruyter in 2007; a text critical volume on the manuscripts of the Book of Tobit (de Gruyter, 2004), and “Messianic Ideas in the Apocalyptic and Related Literature of Early Judaism” in Stanley Porter’s The Messiah in the Old and New Testament (Eerdmans, 2007). He is currently writing a commentary on the Book of Revelation for the Zurich Biblekommentar along with a traditional-historical commentary on Revelation for the Corpus Judaeo-Hellenisticum project directed by Prof. Karl-Wilhelm Niebuhr.
