Tyndale University congratulates Dr. Benjamin Reynolds, Professor of New Testament, on his election to membership in the prestigious Studiorum Novi Testamenti Societas (SNTS, or the Society for New Testament Studies).

SNTS is the premier international society of New Testament scholars that was founded in 1939 for the furtherance of New Testament Studies. The Society’s journal New Testament Studies and SNTS Monograph Series are published by Cambridge University Press and delve into a wide range of issues pertaining to the origins, history, context and theology of the New Testament and early Christianity.

“It is an honour to have been nominated and now to be an elected a member of this prestigious New Testament society,” says Dr. Reynolds. “Many of the New Testament scholars whom I respect are members of the SNTS, and I am humbled to be a fellow member with them.

SNTS has less than one thousand members worldwide from nearly 40 countries. Membership into the Society requires nomination by two current SNTS members from different institutions, and the nominee must “be making a creative and constructive contribution to New Testament studies.” Typically, this means that the nominee has published one major scholarly book and has shown “a diversity of interests in the field” of New Testament studies, through either scholarly articles or a second scholarly book.

Dr. Reynolds has been teaching at Tyndale since 2009, and this fall, he will be teaching New Testament Scripture, Hermeneutics and Pauline Epistles. His publications include John among the Apocalypses: Jewish Apocalyptic Tradition and the “Apocalyptic” Gospel (Oxford, 2020); The “Apocalyptic” Son of Man in the Gospel of John (Mohr Siebeck, 2008); The Son of Man Problem (editor, T&T Clark, 2018); and Reading the Gospel of John’s Christology as Jewish Messianism: Royal, Prophetic, and Divine Messiahs (co-editor, Brill, 2018).

Congratulations Dr. Reynolds!
