<< Return to SBL Forum Archive 2003 Regional Scholar - Mark A. Chancey

Mark A. Chancey attended the University of Georgia, earning a B.A. in Political Science with a minor in Religion (1990) and a M.A. in Religion (1992), before entering Duke University's doctoral program in Religious Studies in 1993. While at Duke, he focused on New Testament Studies and early Judaism, and he also participated in excavations at Sepphoris. He earned his Ph.D. from Duke in 1999 and taught there from 1999-2000 before joining the faculty of SMU in the fall of 2000. His research interests include the Gospels, the Historical Jesus, archaeology and the Bible, and the political and social history of Palestine during the Roman period. His book, The Myth of a Gentile Galilee (Cambridge University Press, 2002), integrates archaeological and literary evidence to demonstrate that first-century C.E. Galilee was overwhelmingly Jewish. He is currently at work on a book about the extent of Greek and Roman cultural influence in Galilee. His paper, "Greco-Roman Culture and the Galilee of Jesus," was delivered at the March 2002 meeting of the Southwestern Regional Society of Biblical Literature Meeting.
