Dr. Jones enjoys the opportunity to teach students the Old Testament. In his teaching he attempts to awaken the interest of and help develop competence in this largely neglected part of the Bible. His research interests are Biblical Hebrew (specifically syntax and lexicography), the book of Psalms, and the book of Kings. He has recently served as a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge (2018-2019).
