Jesse is a graduate student in the Hebrew Bible wing of the CANES Department. Prior to attending UW, he earned his BA in Biblical Studies/Biblical Languages from Ouachita Baptist University, his MA in Biblical Exegesis from Wheaton College, and his MA in Jewish Studies from Hebrew Union College. Jesse is particularly interested in the historical and socio-linguistic analysis of biblical texts, especially those associated with the Deuteronomic History, a topic he hopes to pursue for dissertation research. In addition to work with biblical texts, Jesse has also been a part of UW’s analysis of Palmyrene epigraphic material, serving as a project assistant to the Wisconsin Palmyrene Aramaic Inscriptions Project (WPAIP).
