My name is Michael Metts. I believe Jesus Christ is God’s Son and that he died for our sins. I live to serve God by loving my family, my wife Anna, and my daughters Lillian, Sophia, and Daisy, and to worship him through my studies. I pray that God can use me in ways that please him, and that I can help others by sharing his love and the knowledge he’s given me. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies from Criswell College (summa cum laude) and an Advanced Master of Divinity degree (4.08 GPA), with a biblical languages major, at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in my hometown of Fort Worth, Texas. In addition, I recently completed a Master of Arts in Theological and Biblical Studies (also summa cum laude) at Criswell College. Presently, I have been accepted to the University of Aberdeen and St. Andrews University for PhD studies in New Testament.
Robert Wiesner also believes Jesus is God’s Son. He is married to Jacquie and they have a three-year-old son, Urijah. He is a member of Grace Covenant Chruch in Cincinnati, OH, where he has served as a youth minister and currently serves by teaching adult Bible studies. He completed his undergraduate degree at Dallas Christian College with a major in Biblical Studies and a minor in Biblical Languages. He received awards as the most outstanding student in the area of biblical studies and languages. He has also completed a soon to be awarded Master of Theology in New Testament Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary. The title of his thesis was: “Chosen from the Beginning: Paul’s Predestinarian Theology of Election in the Context of Second Temple Judaism.” His primary academic interest is the Jewish context of the New Testament and early Christianity, especially the writings of Paul and the book of Revelation. He has been a guest on the Unbelievable? podcast, a radio program based out of the UK, but known internationally. He has been accepted into the PhD program at the University of Aberdeen and will begin his doctoral research, under the supervision of Grant Macaskill, on Paul’s theology of sin in February.
