Tim is married to Jessica and together they are raising two little boys, Roman and August, in the wonderful city of Portland, Oregon. He is an adjunct professor of biblical studies at Western Seminary and a creative writer for The Bible Project. Tim has been fascinated with Jesus and his Jewish heritage ever since he became a Christian at 20 years old through an urban outreach ministry to skateboarders in Portland, called SkateChurch. Tim discovered the wonderful world of biblical studies and languages at Multnomah University and Western Seminary, and had the privilege of doing a PhD in Hebrew and Jewish Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Tim’s greatest passion is to help people grasp the beautiful and compelling story of the ancient Scriptures and how they lead us to Jesus of Nazareth.
