The most rewarding aspect of my work with Knox Online is having a small part in the spiritual and intellectual formation of people who are deeply committed to reaching the world with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Through the online courses, I have built friendships with students from around the globe who serve in a wide variety of ministries. It is extremely rewarding to participate in their training while they remain in their unique ministry contexts, knowing that the course material is being applied beyond south Florida in real time.
Dr. Markley received his PhD in New Testament and Christian Origins from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. His interests range from homiletics to textual criticism, but his research has focused primarily on the Synoptic Gospels, apocalyptic texts, and ancient Christian concepts of revelation. His teaching aims to help students grow in their understanding of Biblical Theology and the Christocentric message of the Old and New Testaments. Dr. Markley is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society and the Society of Biblical Literature.
