My name is John Meade and I’m married to lovely Annie and we have four children. We are members of Trinity Bible Church. I am also Associate Professor of Old Testament at Phoenix Seminary, where I teach for the purpose of student transformation and training them for gospel-centered ministry to build up healthy churches in Phoenix and beyond.
My scholarly interests include the biblical canon, Septuagint criticism, Origen’s Hexapla, and textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible. I have recently published with Ed Gallagher The Biblical Canon Lists from Early Christianity: Texts and Analysis (Oxford University Press). I am also in the process of preparing my dissertation, “A Critical Edition of the Hexaplaric Fragments of Job 22-42,” for publication. This volume will be part of the Hexapla Institute’s Field for the 21st Century.
I use this blog to comment on the biblical text and also to give updates on my life and scholarly pursuits. I also have begun to blog more diligently over at Evangelical Textual Criticism, if you want to see more of my posts.
