Kurzbiografie

James A. Kelhoffer is the professor of New Testament Studies at Uppsala University.
Previously, he taught at Saint Louis University (Missouri, USA). His main research interests are the Synoptic Gospels and the Apostolic Fathers. James spent two years as a Humboldt Fellow in Munich researching his book Persecution, Persuasion and Power (2010), on readiness to withstand persecution as a source of legitimacy in the New Testament. Other publications include Miracle and Mission (2000), The Diet of John the Baptist (2005), Conceptions of “Gospel” and Legitimacy in Early Christianity (2014), and articles in Dead Sea Discoveries, Early Christianity, the Journal of Early Christian Studies, Vigiliae Christianae, Zeitschrift für Antikes Christentum, and Zeitschrift für die neutestamentliche Wissenschaft.

His current research focuses on the Second Letter of Clement, on which he is preparing a commentary and a collection of essays. James serves as an associate editor of the monograph series Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen zum Neuen Testament; is on the editorial board of Sapientia Logos: A Journal of Biblical Research & Interpretation in Africa; and was recently on the editorial board of New Testament Studies. In his spare time, James enjoys jogging (slowly, and often pushing his young son in a stroller), and playing trumpet in Uppsala University’s Royal Academic Orchestra as well as in other ensembles.
