Dr. Greg Linton

I have been Professor of New Testament at Johnson University in Knoxville, TN, since 2006. I am the Chair of the Bible Division. Before coming to Johnson, I worked at Great Lakes Christian College in Lansing, MI, as Professor of New Testament for seven years and as Vice President of Academic Affairs for the last three of those years.

I graduated summa cum laude with a BA in Bible and preaching from Johnson University in Knoxville, TN. I received a Master of Divinity from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. I received a Ph.D. in New Testament and Christian Origins from Duke University in Durham, NC. I completed an M.A. in Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education at Michigan State University in December 2007.

I am a member of the Society of Biblical Literature, the American Schools of Oriental Research, and the American Institute of Archaeology. I am the secretary/treasurer of ASOR Southeast. I have also participated two summers in the Karak Resources Project as a co-director of the Regional Survey Team that examined archaeological sites on the Karak Plateau in Jordan.

I have been married for over 20 years, and we have two young boys.



  1. Dear Professor Linton,

    Please may I request permission to reproduce one of your articles – The Effects of Video Games on Learning: The Negative View (2010), for learning in classroom? I am a teacher at St Francis Methodist School – a christian affilated college. The purpose of reproducing the article is to provide a balance view of using games as a teaching tool in school. Your permission is very much appreciated. Thank you and god bless.


    • Yes, please use it however you think it might be useful.

  2. Hi Dr Linton,

    I’m looking for an article you wrote in 2009 for JBHE about ‘core competencies’ for Bible College curriculum.

    I’m the new principal of a small Bible college in Australia, and I’m learning more about competency based training.

    Your article sounds very relevant
