Catholic Biblical Scholar and Theologian
I am Dr. John Bergsma, Full Professor of Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville in Steubenville, Ohio. I grew up Protestant (Dutch Calvinist) and served as a pastor for four years before becoming Catholic in 2001 while getting a Ph.D. in Scripture from the University of Notre Dame (Indiana).
I completed my doctoral work on the Year of Jubilee in 2004, and have been teaching in Steubenville ever since. I specialize in Old Testament and the Dead Sea Scrolls. I also specialize in taking care of my wife and seven children. We live in Steubenville, Ohio, about a mile from the university.

"You will come to see the Bible in a whole new light, and find yourself reading it -- with greater wisdom and insight -- for the rest of your life." ~Dr. Scott Hahn
