Though Dr. Painter has presented numerous scholarly papers on a variety of New Testament topics, his publishing contributions that could influence future scholarship are imminently forthcoming.
Dr. Painter earned his Ph.D. at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. He was the Professor of New Testament and Greek at Simpson University and Adjunct Professor of New Testament at A. W. Tozer Theological Seminary.
