Biography

Grant Macaskill was appointed to the Kirby Laing Chair of New Testament Exegesis in 2015. Prior to this, he had taught as Senior Lecturer in New Testament at the University of St Andrews, where he had completed both his doctoral and postdoctoral projects. His research engages with the New Testament as a coherent body of theological literature emerging from the diverse contexts of late Second Temple Judaism. His publications have included extensive treatments of theological issues in the New Testament, notably 'Union with Christ', and detailed examination of the transmission of Jewish apocalyptic texts in Christian tradition, particularly 1 Enoch and 2 Enoch. He has recently completed a study of 'The New Testament and Intellectual Humility' (forthcoming, Oxford University Press), funded by Saint Louis University and the John Templeton Foundation, and is beginning an examination of 'The Ascension of Christ', co-authored with David Moffitt (University of St Andrews). He is also contracted to write a 2-volume theological commentary on Romans for the International Theological Commentary Series (T&T Clark). Professor Macaskill is also interested in research into the place of persons with autism in Christian communities, and how the Bible might shape thought and practice with respect to this.
