Jack Painter

Jack Painter, Ph.D.

Dr. Jackson Painter has been teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels for over two decades. Being fluent in biblical Greek and Hebrew, he has many keen insights into God’s Word.  There is nothing Dr. Painter would rather do than walk people line by line through Holy Scripture.  Given Jack’s dedication as a father, he only recently began to take the bulk of his leisure to develop his original research primarily on the Book of Jude.  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.  His first published volume, The Gospel of John: A Thematic Approach (Wipf & Stock, 2010) develops the motifs of witness, testimony, and identity.


Jack Painter’s mission statement is:

To celebrate God’s handiwork in the light of God’s Word.
