Bio and Academic Publications

Welcome to my blog! I am a New Testament PhD candidate and adjunct instructor at Asbury Theological Seminary. Before entering the world of biblical studies, I worked as an engineer in the space industry and taught physics at Biola University. I now live in Kentucky with my lovely wife, Ashlyn, and my adorable son, Luke.

You can contact me via Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail (murrayvasser@gmail.com).
