Dr. Gage believes that students should be trained to preach the Word, be prepared in season and out of season, to correct, rebuke, and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction (2 Timothy 4:2-3). Passionate about biblical theology and the great books, Dr. Gage relishes the opportunity to prepare Knox Seminary students for the highest of all callings—the gospel ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ.
His love of the Reformed faith was born out of a deep sense of his own unworthiness, and a profound joy in the pure grace of God. He is trained in Old Testament, philosophy, history, and law.
Prior to entering ministry, Dr. Gage spent ten years as a trial attorney. He was national counsel for a multi-billion dollar defense contractor based in Washington, DC.
After coming to Knox Seminary, he was installed as an Assistant Minister at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, founded by Dr. D. James Kennedy. Upon Dr. Kennedy’s disability, he was invited to preach the evening service at Coral Ridge and continued to do so for two years. When the new pastor, Rev. Tullian Tchividjian, was installed, he asked Dr. Gage to continue preaching the evening service for an additional two years.
Dr. Gage wrote the curriculum for the Christian and Classical Studies program at the seminary. He has written twelve books on the theme of biblical theology, ten titles published through Logos Bible Software. Three of these titles are on the resurrection of Jesus in the Old Testament.
Dr. Gage has published articles in various academic journals such as Crux and the Westminster Theological Journal.
When not teaching, Dr. Gage enjoys the Great books, conversation with friends, World War II history, and all things German. He is married and has two children.
