Various forms of ministry in the local church complement Dr. Smith’s role as a teacher in the New Testament department. He has a special interest in the apostle Paul’s letters and New Testament theology. He regularly contributes to leading academic journals and several professional societies. His current teaching and research interests include 1 Corinthians and sexual ethics in Pauline literature. "Dr. Jay" often uses sports, history, and music metaphors to help his students learn Greek grammar and syntax. And maybe someday he and his daughters, Karissa and Dayna, will hook a big one at the lake right by his house.
