Isaac Blois is a New Testament scholar who received his training at St. Andrews University, where he studied the intersection of Jewish theology with the Greco-Roman milieu of Paul’s early-Christian correspondents in the Roman colony of Philippi. Isaac is passionate about reading and helping others read the Bible as a whole, a love which was fostered and developed during his undergraduate years as a student in Torrey Honors College.
