Biographical Information
Eugene Eung-Chun Park, the Dana and Dave Dornsife Professor of New Testament, doesn't settle for quick and easy answers. Park came to San Francisco Theological Seminary in 1996 because he wanted to be a scholar without restraints. "I want to share my passion for the Scriptures and I want to make other people fascinated by what they read," Park said. "I do believe that the text of the New Testament has inspiring power. It is incumbent upon us to let the text speak for itself." Prior to SFTS, Park taught for three years at Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Seoul, Korea. A native of Seoul, Park has studied at the University of Chicago, Yale Divinity School, Presbyterian Theological Seminary and Seoul National University. In 2001, Park wrote the Bible study for the 213th General Assembly, Rooted and Grounded in Love. His other publications include Either Jew or Gentile: Paul's Unfolding Theology of Inclusivity and The Mission Discourse in Matthew's Interpretation. He is currently working on his third book, which focuses on Matthew's understanding of salvation. Park, who maintains a rigorous exercise regimen, reveals his passion for teaching and his pastoral heart when he said, "I will do my best so that when my students read the text with my help, they will be interested and fascinated first, and then transformed in their lives and their ministry."
