Kent Yinger

Professor of New Testament


Guess this professor's past ecclesiastical involvements.

  • Advent Christian
  • Baptist General Conference
  • Christian Reformed
  • Disciples of Christ/Independent Christian
  • Evangelical Free
  • Lutheran (German Evangelische Landeskirche)
  • Inter- or Non-Denominational
  • Presbyterian Church/USA

If you guessed that I'm an ecclesiastical mutt (mixed breed), i.e., all of the above, you're on target. And I've been a happy mutt in each doghouse.

In my New Testament (NT) classes you'll grapple with the dizzying diversity present in the NT and be challenged to discover Christ himself as the stabilizing center.
