I am Dr. John Bergsma, Full Professor of Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville in Steubenville, Ohio. I grew up Protestant (Dutch Calvinist) and served as a pastor for four years before becoming Catholic in 2001 while getting a Ph.D. in Scripture from the University of Notre Dame (Indiana). 

I completed my doctoral work on the Year of Jubilee in 2004, and have been teaching in Steubenville ever since. I specialize in Old Testament and the Dead Sea Scrolls. I also specialize in taking care of my wife and eight children. We live in Steubenville, Ohio, about a mile from the university.
