Ph.D., University of St. Andrews

Dr. Edwards is originally from east Tennessee. He came to St. Francis College after completing his Ph.D. at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. His research focuses on the New Testament, Early Christianity, and the reception history of biblical texts. His first book, The Ransom Logion in Mark and Matthew (Mohr Siebeck), was published in 2012. It demonstrates the importance of the early reception history of the ransom logion for historical-critical work on the Gospels of Mark and Matthew. His second book, The Gospel According to the Epistle of Barnabas (Mohr Siebeck), was published in 2019. It demonstrates that while the reasons for the initial parting of the ways between Barnabas’ community and lived Judaism are irrecoverable, Jesus becomes foundational for maintaining separation between “them” and “us.” Dr. Edwards is currently editing a reference work on the Early Christian Apocrypha and is beginning a third research project on the reception of Paul within American Evangelicalism and Messianic Judaism.

Dr. Edwards teaches Biblical Greek I & II, Early Christian Gospels, Introduction to the New Testament, The Christian Tradition, American Evangelicalism and Survey of the World’s Religions. Website:
