Rabbi Joshua Garroway, Ph.D., serves as Associate Professor of Early Christianity and the Second Commonwealth.
Dr. Garroway earned his doctorate from the Religious Studies Department at Yale University and was ordained at the Cincinnati campus of HUC-JIR. His first book, Paul’s Gentile-Jews: Neither Jew nor Gentile, but Both, explores the ways in which Paul's epistle to the Romans constructs Jewish identity, and the role played by this construction in the ensuing emergence of Christianity. His second book, currently in progress, will offer a revisionist understanding of the origins of the Greek term euaggelion, usually translated “gospel,” in earliest Christianity.
Dr. Garroway is a native of Rochester, New York. He currently lives in Pasadena, California, with his wife, Kristine Henriksen Garroway, and their three young boys.
