About Dustin Ellington and this website

Dustin 2 July 2013   My name is Dustin Ellington, and on this site I sometimes share what I’m finding in Scripture. I also offer insights into the process of interpreting the Bible.

A little about me: I seek to live in close relationship with God and to understand and live out God’s call. I hope I can be helpful to others on their own journey; I try to do this especially through teaching, writing, and mentoring. I’m trained as a New Testament scholar, but I’m also interested in missiology. I hope all of my teaching and writing can serve the progress of the gospel, the health of the church, and the formation of believers. Since 2010, I’ve trained pastors and Christian leaders in Africa as a lecturer in New Testament and Greek at Justo Mwale University in Lusaka, Zambia. I’m sent by the Presbyterian Church (USA). I’m also a research fellow of the Department of Old and New Testaments at the University of the Free State (Bloemfontein, South Africa). From 2005 to 2009, I taught at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo, Egypt. Before that, I did my Ph.D. in New Testament at Duke University and served as Associate Pastor for Youth and Young Adults at First Presbyterian Church of Visalia, California. My M.Div. is from Princeton Theological Seminary and my B.A. from Stanford. I’m married and have two sons, and I enjoy living and serving in Zambia. I grew up in Kentucky.

Articles I’ve written can be found in the Journal for the Study of the New Testament, the Journal of Biblical LiteratureWord and Context, Scriptura, and Missionalia. I’ve also contributed chapters in books; and I was the writer for the introduction, study notes, and questions for reflection on 1 Corinthians in the NIV Bible called God’s Justice. Most of my articles can be accessed here: https://justomwale.academia.edu/DustinEllington
