Born and raised in Vancouver, Gord Hamilton attended Brown University (B.A., Religious Studies), the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Visiting Student), Harvard Divinity School (M.T.S., Old and New Testaments), and Harvard University (M.A., Ph.D, Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations). He came to Huron from the University of Calgary in 1988. He has an abiding research interest in any Canaanite or Hebrew inscriptions relating to the Old Testament. His research on the origins of alphabetic writing has taken him to museums in Egypt, Israel, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Gord teaches Biblical Hebrew and critical methods of interpreting the Old Testament, focussing on parts of Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, and Isaiah, and undergraduate and graduate courses on the Dead Sea Scrolls. As an active Roman Catholic lay person, he also has a passion for Jewish-Christian and inter-Christian relations.
