Jason DeRouchie of Bethlehem College & Seminary in Minneapolis is joining Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary’s faculty as research professor of Old Testament and biblical theology.
MBTS President Jason Allen said DeRouchie is “another tremendous addition to a faculty already teeming with accomplished scholars and devoted churchmen.”
“Not only is Dr. DeRouchie an accomplished Old Testament scholar, he’s also a man of deep personal piety, has a pulsating heart for the nations, and is a generous, sacrificial churchman,” Allen said. “In fact, in every way he embodies what it means to be for the church.”
At Bethlehem College & Seminary, DeRouchie has been professor of Old Testament and biblical theology since 2009. He previously was a biblical Greek and Hebrew instructor at Gordon College and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts (1997–2000), an associate pastor in a Southern Baptist church in Indiana (2001–2005) and assistant professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Northwestern College in Saint Paul, Minn. (2005–2009).
DeRouchie, who has been active in Bethlehem Baptist Church as an elder and Sunday School teacher, has published a number of books, including “How to Understand and Apply the Old Testament: Twelve Steps from Exegesis to Theology”; “For Our Good Always: Studies on the Message and Influence of Deuteronomy”; “What the Old Testament Authors Really Cared About: A Survey of Jesus’ Bible”; “A Modern Grammar for Biblical Hebrew”; and “A Call to Covenant Love: Text Grammar and Literary Structure in Deuteronomy 5–11.” He also has several forthcoming books.
