1012ne Trick.Brad

Dr. Bradley Trick, assistant professor of New Testament, will lead a community-wide study of the New Testament book of Romans with a focus on racial reconciliation.

Sponsored jointly by St. John’s Lutheran Church and Soldiers Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church, the six-week study will meet on Thursday nights from Oct. 15 to Nov. 19 in the Aymer Center on the Hood Seminary campus at 1810 Lutheran Synod Drive.

Each week will begin with a meal from 6-6:30, followed by study and discussion, ending around 8:15. The cost of the meal is $7.00 per person. All are welcome. Please register at:  http://tinyurl.com/RomansSalisbury

Trick received a B.A., cum laude, from Harvard University, a Master of Divinity and a Master of Theology at Regent College, and a Ph.D. in New Testament from Duke University.

Trick has taught New Testament at Hood since 2010. He recently finished the manuscript for his first book, “Sons, Seed, and Children of Promise: Testamentary Adoption as the Key to Understanding Abrahamic Descent and Its Implications for the Law in Galatians” (publication pending). He also authored “Death, Covenants, and the Proof of Resurrection in Mark 12:18-27” Novum Testamentum 49 (2007): 232-56.

His principal interests include Paul and Pauline Theology (especially Galatians and Romans), the unity of the testaments, the biblical stages of development through which believers progress on their way to maturity, and the ways in which the gospel creates interdependence between different genders, generations, and races/ethnicities.

He currently lives in Salisbury with his wife Elizabeth and their two children.

Hood Theological Seminary, located at 1810 Lutheran Synod Drive, Salisbury, North Carolina and sponsored by the A.M.E. Zion Church, is a graduate and professional school where intellectual discourse and ministerial preparation occur in tandem within the framework of a diverse community of faith.
