The otstory is about the stories of the Old Testament. My name is Jin Yang Kim. My primarily concern in the Old Testament studies is stories and narratives. I attempt to read the stories and narratives in the Bible with an eye on their theological messages for the original audience (author’s ideological and theological point of view) but also on the relevance of thier messages for the contemporary community of faith (my own social location).
I taught at Wartburg College , Waverly, Iowa as a visiting professor for the Winter semester of 2008, and I am teaching again during the Winter semester of 2009. I received my Ph.D. in biblical studies in 2011 from the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago.
I am currently the pastor of Steward/Creston United Methodist Churches, and Auxiliary Faculty in Old Testament Studies at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago.
