We at Between the Times wish to make our readers aware that Southeastern’s own Chuck Quarles was recently elected to the Studiorum Novi Testamenti Societas, or Society for New Testament Studies (SNTS). SNTS is an international society, and widely considered the most prestigious society, of New Testament scholars from around the world. These scholars are recognized for their excellence in and contributions to the field of New Testament studies.
Candidates for election to SNTS must be nominated by members, and Dr. Quarles (Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology) was nominated by renowned evangelical New Testament scholars and SNTS members Craig A. Evans (Payzant Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Acadia Divinity College) and Ben Witherington (Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Asbury Theological Seminary).
Two other Southern Baptist scholars are members of SNTS: Southeastern’s own David Alan Black (Professor of New Testament and Greek) and Southern Seminary’s Mark A. Seifrid (Mildred and Ernest Hogan Professor of New Testament Interpretation).
Dr. Quarles possesses a powerful mind and a prolific pen, both of which are reflected in his two recently completed manuscripts, A Theology of Matthew (P&R) and A Life of Paul (B&H Academic); and in previous books, such as Midrash Criticism: Introduction and Appraisal (University Press of America); The Sermon on the Mount (B&H Academic). Quarles also recently co-authored The Cradle, the Cross, and the Crown (B&H Academic) with fellow Southeastern professors Kellum and Köstenberger, a book which already has been translated into Korean (Christian Literature Crusade).
Dr. Quarles also has published articles in numerous academic journals such as New Testament Studies (the journal of SNTS), Bulletin of Biblical Research, Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus, and Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society. As a committed churchman, Dr. Quarles has also written various Bible studies for churches, including the forthcoming January 2014 Lifeway study on Colossians.
As a master teacher of Greek and New Testament, committed and faithful evangelical New Testament scholar, and dedicated Christian, Southeastern is blessed to welcome Dr. Quarles to the faculty.
