The Rev. Dr. Bradley McLean, Professor of New Testament Language and Literature & Director of Distance Education

Bradley joined the College in 2000.

He believes that theological education has four fundamental values: community, worship, scholarship and spiritual growth.

Bradley teaches Hermeneutics, Social Background of the New Testament, and Hellenistic and Koine Greek.
