Dr. Dodd’s research interests include the post-exilic books of the Old Testament, the textual history of the Hebrew Bible, scribalism and literacy in antiquity, archaeology of ancient Israel and Second Temple Judea, and the reception of scriptural traditions in early Jewish literature.

He is currently working toward the publication of his dissertation, Recalling Genesis and Other Authoritative Traditions: Orality, Textuality, and Memory in the Book of Jubilees. Other publications include the initial analysis of the thirteenth “Boundary of Gezer” inscription in the Israel Exploration Journal (coauthor), a project report on the Gezer Regional Survey in Hadashot Arkeologiyot (coauthor), and the translation of II Samuel for the Modern English Version.

Dr. Dodd has eight seasons of archaeological field experience in Israel, and he currently serves as the Associate Director of the Gezer Regional Survey. He regularly presents his research at meetings of the Society of Biblical Literature, the Evangelical Theological Society, and the American Schools of Oriental Research and also serves on the board of directors for the Near Eastern Archaeological Society.

Dr. Dodd’s desire is, through his teaching and research, to help students of the Scriptures understand these sacred writings within their ancient contexts. He is currently a member of Cityview Church where he and his family enjoy serving their local community.
