Colorado Christian University announced today the hiring of Dr. Kyle
Greenwood as Assistant Professor of Old Testament Studies. He will join
the School of Theology
faculty at the start of the spring 2009 semester.
Dr. Greenwood graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1991 and
earned an M.Div. at Asbury Theological Seminary in 1999, followed by
studies at Hebrew Union College, where he completed an M.Phil. in
Hebraic and cognate studies and a Ph.D. in biblical studies (2004,
2008). His areas of teaching expertise include Old Testament survey,
history, theology, and exegesis; biblical Hebrew and Aramaic; and
ancient Near Eastern history, literature, languages, and religion.
Since 2005, Dr. Greenwood has taught at Indiana Wesleyan University, and
in 2006 he lectured at Xavier University on Egypt and Nubia, ancient
Near Eastern mythology, and biblical Hebrew. From 1999 to 2004, he
directed the junior and senior high youth program at Community
Fellowship Church in Lawrenceburg, Ind., and then served as the church's
youth pastor beginning in 2005. Dr. Greenwood is a member of the
American Oriental Society, International Association of Assyriology,
National Association of Professors of Hebrew, and Society of Biblical
Literature. His publications and honors speak to his rigorous academic
commitment, and his ministry and professional experiences add a strong
relational dimension to his teaching.
"Dr. Greenwood is a good teacher and scholar who shows great heart for
students," commented CCU Associate Professor of New Testament Dr. Johann
Kim. "His scholarship will be a boon to our department and University,
and his expertise in Old Testament prophetic theology will be an asset
to our examination of this very important portion of Scripture."
Dr. Greenwood and his wife Karen, a physician who specializes in family
medicine, have three children: Stephen, 9; Jessica, 7; and Michael, 5.
The family enjoys sharing many activities together, including water
skiing, alpine skiing, and watching movies.
Colorado Christian University is delighted to welcome the Greenwood
family to the CCU community, and we appreciate your prayers of support
for them as they relocate to the Denver area and begin this new stage in
