David Moffitt is a Reader in New Testament at the University of St Andrews and has published field-changing work on the logic of resurrection in the book of Hebrews. HIs research interests orbit around the various ways the earliest Christians understood Jesus and their own identities in relation to Jewish scripture, practices, and beliefs. His work is especially focused on the Epistle to the Hebrews and the strategies the text employs to interpret early Christian claims about Jesus’ person, death, resurrection, and ascension in high-priestly and sacrificial terms.
