구약학2 Soon Jin Choi, PhD|Professor of Old Testament  |  Email :
Dr. Soon Jin Choi joined our faculty as a full-time lecturer in 2008. Dr. Choi began his higher education at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, Korea. His first love was science and he obtained a Master of Science from the University of Texas in Austin (USA). While working on his doctoral program in science at Washington University, he took a few theological courses at Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia, PA, USA). It became clear to him that his calling was for Christian ministry, so he decided to transfer as a full-time student into the MDiv program. After graduating from Westminster, he received a Master of Theology from Biblical Theological Seminary in Hatfield, PA, USA and a PhD from the University of Gloucestershire, Cheltenham, England. His doctoral advisor was Dr. Gordon McConville and his thesis topic was “A New Heart to Know the Lord: Rhetorical Analysis of Jeremiah 21-24.” His teaching and research interests are as follows: Old Testament prophetic books, hermeneutics, rhetorical analysis, and the background of the Old Testament.
