Dr. Justin Rogers, Freed-Hardeman University associate professor of Bible and director of the FHU Graduate School of Theology, has accepted an invitation to join the International Philo Bibliography Project, under the direction of David T. Runia of Melbourne, Australia.
Ten scholars from around the world (Australia, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Norway, and the United States) work each year to compile a comprehensive bibliography with brief reviews of every work published in areas related to Philonic studies. The bibliography and reviews are published each year in the “Studia Philonica Annual,” and every 10 years are published as a monograph with Brill, an international scholarly publisher. Rogers’ area of emphasis will be Hellenistic Judaism and the New Testament.
In addition, Rogers has been selected to serve as the program unit chair for the Philo of Alexandria Seminar of the Society of Biblical Literature.
Philo of Alexandria, a younger contemporary of the Apostle Paul, is the most important representative of Judaism in the Greek-speaking Diaspora. His writings offer key insights into Jewish understandings of the Bible at the time of the New Testament.
An alumnus of FHU, Rogers holds a Ph.D. in Judaic, Hebraic and cognate studies from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. He joined the FHU faculty in 2010 as an instructor in Bible and biblical languages. He became an assistant professor in 2012 and was promoted to associate professor in April 2018. He was named director of the Graduate School of Theology last summer.
