Dr. Lynn Cohick, professor of New Testament at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, is interested in studying how average Jews and Christians lived out their faith in the ancient settings of Hellenism and the Roman Empire, as well as how Jews and Christians today can better appreciate and understand each other. She also studies women of the ancient world—especially how they celebrated their religions—and the impact of feminist thought on New Testament studies. She enjoys studying the apostle Paul and his epistles within their larger Jewish and Greco-Roman milieu.
