Dr. Michael Matlock joined the podcast today. The Rev’d Prof. Michael Matlock is Professor of Inductive Biblical Studies, Old Testament, & Early Judaism & Co-director of Anglican Studies and Formation at Asbury Seminary.
Prof. Matlock has served in the School of Biblical Interpretation since 1998, as the department chair of Inductive Biblical Studies since 2013, and as co-director of Anglican Studies and Formation since 2019. He understands his calling to be a beloved son and servant of Jesus, unconditional lover of Robin, loving encourager of his children, and to teach Scripture for the sake of God’s church and world. Outside of teaching biblical studies, he teaches the Anglican history and polity course. His books include “Discovering the Traditions of Prose Prayers in Early Jewish Literature” (T&T Clark) and a devotional commentary on Daniel 1-6 (Seedbed). He is currently writing a two-volume commentary on the Greek text of 1 and 2 Chronicles and the Prayer of Manasseh for the Septuagint Commentary Series (Brill Publishers).
He and his wife Robin have been married for more than 30 years and have three insightful, resourceful children.
In today’s conversation, we talk about Dr. Matlock’s calling to ministry and how that unfolded, what he knows about calling now that he didn’t then, marriage and a little bit about his work here at Asbury Seminary. You won’t want to miss this delightful conversation.
