Dr. Jason Moraff
Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies
Raised in an interfaith, multiethnic household and within the Messianic Jewish movement, Dr. Jason Moraff became interested in biblical studies when he realized that, as a Jewish follower of Jesus, he interpreted the Bible, particularly the New Testament, differently from his Gentile Christian peers. In his academic work and in the classroom, he seeks to address anti-Judaism in Christian theology and preaching, and to develop post-supersessionist New Testament interpretation. He loves helping students mature as disciples of Jesus who serve faithfully in the Church and the world. Dr. Moraff enjoys sports, music, the outdoors, and spending time with his wonderful wife, daughter, and dog.
