Brandon Szerlip is our Lecturer in New Testament.
He was educated at Moody Bible Institute, Wheaton College Graduate School, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He began at Moody as a missionary aviation major and actually completed his Airframe and Powerplant mechanic’s license. However, it was at Moody that he discovered a deep passion for the study of God’s Word and so went on to study theology.
From 2013 to 2020 he taught Greek and the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament for Westminster Theological Seminary, while at the same time completing his PhD. He has published an article on the ‘Nature of Glory from a Philosophical and Biblical Perspective’ and is working to submit his dissertation on the use of the Old Testament in Philippians to published soon.
He is passionate about being in the classroom and letting each text show how the Bible presents a beautiful and grand story of God’s unshakeable love for his people and his determination to make all things new based on the finished work of the resurrected Messiah, Jesus.
Brandon is married to Alexa and they have three young children.
