Eugene Eung-Chun Park is a biblical scholar, who is interested in interpreting the NT and early Christian literature against the background of Greek philosophy and Second Temple Judaism. He has a passion for what he understands to be the core message of the Judeo-Christian scriptures, that is, the reign of God for the peace and justice of the world. He pursues his scholarship with the hope that it will make a contribution to enhancing the shalom of the entire humanity over and beyond all the boundaries that divide and alienate people from each other.
