Dr. Meg Ramey is Associate Professor of Biblical Studies at Messiah College in Grantham, Pennsylvania. She received a Ph.D. from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland while working as a youth minister. Meg loves traveling and learning about other cultures and regularly shares this passion with her students and tour participants when leading them on cross-cultural courses in Turkey and Greece. There they literally walk in the footsteps of Paul on his three missionary journeys (Acts 13-21) and explore several of the cities and earliest Christian communities to which he wrote letters (Galatians, Ephesians, Colossians, Philemon, and more). Meg’s areas of interest and expertise include portrayals of Jesus in fiction and film, the Gospel of Matthew, and narrative criticism. Her authored works include The Quest for the Fictional Jesus: Gospel Rewrites, Gospel (Re)Interpretation, and Christological Portraits within Jesus Novels and “What’s the Harm in Harmonization? Using Jesus Films in the Classroom to Examine the Crucifixion Narratives” featured in Teaching the Bible in the Liberal Arts Classroom. Currently, Meg is editing “The Bible in Fiction”project for Oxford University Press.
