Craig Blomberg, PhD
Distinguished Professor of New Testament , Denver Theological Seminary
Dr. Craig Blomberg is Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary in Littleton, Colorado. He holds the B.A. from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, the M.A. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, and the Ph.D. from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland. Moreover, Craig has taught and led in local churches in Colorado for almost fifteen years now.
Ever since trying to share his faith widely on his high school and college campuses, Craig has been aware that debates over who Jesus was form the most central issue of any in Christian apologetics, and that giving a credible scholarly answer to this question is part of his life's calling. Craig is the author of twelve books and has co-authored or co-edited eight more, along with dozens of journal articles and chapters in multi-author works. His books include three on the historical reliability and interpretation of the gospels (one specializing in John), two on interpreting and preaching the parables, three commentaries (on Matthew, 1 Corinthians and James), a textbook on Jesus and the Gospels and another on Acts through Revelation, two books on material possessions in the Bible, and a handbook on New Testament exegesis.
