I, Jonathan Homrighausen, am an MA student in Biblical Studies at the Jesuit School of Theology and Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA, where I focus on Scripture and interreligious connections between Jews, Christians, and Muslims in antiquity and today. To that end, I am earning graduate certificates in Jewish Studies and Islamic Studies at the GTU.
I am co-author, with J. David Pleins, of the forthcoming Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary by Conceptual Categories: A Student’s Guide to Nouns in the Old Testament (Zondervan).
I am currently contracted with Liturgical Press to write a book on The Saint John’s Bible, a major contemporary landmark in art and biblical interpretation. I base this book on my showing this Bible to hundreds of people in my work in Archives & Special Collections.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Classics and Religious Studies at Santa Clara University, where he studied Classical Greek for three years and wrote two undergraduate theses. Both of them were completely unrelated to the Bible.
I am also married to Michelle Runyon, a smart, sweet aspiring archivist and historian.
The name of this website comes from J.D., my first and middle initials, and Homie, the nickname of my great-grandfather (who himself studied Greek). The banner above is from Word Made Flesh, the frontispiece to the Gospel of John in The Saint John’s Bible.
I am open to doing interviews or giving talks related to my published work. Feel free to email me at jdhomrighausen [at] gmail.com. For my CV and copies of my work, see my Academia.edu page.
