Before coming to Tyndale in 2006, Dr. Scott taught for three years at King's University College at the University of Western Ontario. Much of his current research examines ways of knowing in the New Testament and early Judaism. His publications include his recent book, Implicit Epistemology in the Letters of Paul: Story, Experience and the Spirit (Mohr Siebeck, 2006), the chapter entitled "Epistemology and Social Conflict in Jubilees and Aristeas" in the forthcoming book Common Judaism Explored, and an article in New Testament Studies entitled " Common Ground? The Role of Gal 2.16 in Paul's Argument." He is co-editor of the Online Critical Pseudepigrapha (www.purl.org/net/ocp), an electronic publication of the Society of Biblical Literature. He has presented papers at the Canadian Society of Biblical Studies and the Society of Biblical Literature, as well as other academic conferences. Outside the academy, Dr. Scott preaches and teaches in a variety of church contexts. Over the years, he and his wife Susan have been involved in youth work, small-group leadership and worship ministries.
