Michael Cover, Ph.D.

Michael Cover (Ph.D., University of Notre Dame, 2013) specializes in New Testament and early Judaism, particularly the Pauline letters, Philo of Alexandria, and their reception in early Christianity. Recent articles include contributions to The Studia Philonica Annual and Galatians and Christian Theology (Baker Academic, 2014). His first book, provisionally titled Lifting the Veil: Paul's Exodus Midrash in Light of the Jewish Commentary Tradition, examines Paul's interpretation of the Pentateuch in light of contemporary Platonic and Jewish commentaries from Alexandria.

He is a priest in the Episcopal Church and has served several parishes in the Diocese of Northern Indiana.
