Associate Professor of Old Testament, Emmanuel School of Religion

M. Div., Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary,
Ph.D., Harvard University,

Jason Bembry grew up in Sylva, North Carolina in the a cappella churches of Christ. He is married and has 3 sons and his family worships at Grandview Christian Church in Johnson City. His dissertation, entitled “Yahweh’s Coming of Age,” is an examination of old age in the Old Testament with a particular look at why Yahweh is not portrayed explicitly with old age imagery in Israel’s early traditions and why this changes in Daniel 7 with the epithet “Ancient of Days.”

Dr. Bembry’s initial ministry experience came in an overseas mission effort in Prague, Czech Republic where he lived for a year working with other missionaries. While living in Boston, Dr. Bembry worked as college minister at the Melrose Church of Christ, a ministry that served numerous schools in the Boston area.

He holds the Ph.D. degree from Harvard University where he focused on Pre-Exilic history and Northwest Semitic, especially Ugaritic. Dr. Bembry received his M. Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and he has taught part time at Harvard, Gordon-Conwell, and Lipscomb University and full time at Milligan College. His areas of interest in the Old Testament include Hebrew language study, the theological perspective of the prophets and theological development in Israelite Religion.

Dr. Bembry enjoys playing basketball, coaching T-Ball, backpacking in the Appalachian Mountains, listening to Jazz and playing guitar.
