Christian Sanchez to Join UPSem as Instructor of New Testament

Richmond, VA (April 25, 2024)—Union Presbyterian Seminary welcomes Christian Sanchez as Instructor of New Testament.

Sanchez is a graduate of The University of St. Andrews (M.Phil.) and Southwestern Assemblies of God University (B.A.). He is pursuing his Ph.D. at Baylor University in Texas. His dissertation research involves thinking theologically about the intersections of early Christian apocalypticism and Roman imperialism in New Testament literature, specifically in the books of Luke and Acts.

An author, presenter, and scholar, Sanchez has a deep interest in critical spatiality, Latinx interpretation, and ecological interpretation.
