Biography: Marianne Meye Thompson

Marianne Meye Thompson
Marianne Meye Thompson, the George Eldon Ladd Professor of New Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary, joined Fuller's School of Theology faculty in 1985. Her courses included New Testament 1 and 2, Exegetical Method and Practice, Greek Exegesis courses, Life of Jesus, Contemporary Quests of the Historical Jesus, and Johannine Theology.

Thompson has been instrumental in developing advanced-level interdisciplinary courses that integrate biblical interpretation with other disciplines of the theological curriculum. She is author of 1-3 John (IVP New Testament Commentary, 2011), A Commentary on Colossians and Philemon (The Two Horizons Commentary, 2005), The God of the Gospel of John (2001), and The Promise of the Father (2000), and co-author of Introducing the New Testament (2001). She has also published numerous articles and reviews in scholarly journals. She is currently working on a commentary on the Gospel of John.

A member of the Studiorum Novi Testamenti Societas, Thompson has participated in various projects at the Center of Theological Inquiry (in Princeton, N.J.), including “The Scripture Project” and “The Identity of Jesus,” as well as in consultations on “Children in the Scriptures,” sponsored by the Valparaiso Project on Childhood Studies, Theology, and Ethics, and “Teaching the Bible in the 21st Century,” at the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning.

An adept communicator of Christian biblical scholarship to a popular audience, Thompson was featured on the PBS series Genesis. She has served on various editorial boards, including those of Theology Today and New Testament Studies. She is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
