Matthew L. Halsted, PhD

Professor / Author


I use this space as a repository of sorts for articles, videos, and various other clippings that are connected to my research and writing. I recently published a book on hermeneutics entitled Paul and the Meaning of Scripture (Amazon). I’m currently finishing up a popular-level book on eschatology (“the end times”). I also have several other irons in the fire, including a research project on religious/supernatural experience.

My educational background includes degrees in international studies and philosophy. I also have a PhD in philosophical hermeneutics/biblical studies (London School of Theology/Middlesex University). I have the privilege of serving as co-president/registrar at Eternity Bible College, where I get to teach amazing students alongside fantastic colleagues. Most of my research revolves around philosophical hermeneutics and the philosophy of Hans-Georg Gadamer, the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament, and Revelation/apocalyptic literature.
