Dr. Robert J. Cara is Professor of New Testament at RTS-Charlotte and Chief Academic Officer for the RTS institution. Dr. Cara was an engineer for seven years before the Lord re-directed him toward seminary. As a former college basketball player for Penn State-Capitol, he has developed a reputation as an energetic and challenging classroom teacher, and he is a personable scholar who is very student oriented. In addition to the traditional New Testament topics, Dr. Cara’s academic interests include relating the New Testament to Reformed Theology, creeds, hermeneutics, narrative criticism, and benedictions. He wrote a commentary on 1 & 2 Thessalonians in the EP Study Commentary series and is scheduled to produce the Hebrews commentary in the same series. Dr. Cara is currently working on a book critical of the “New Perspective on Paul.” Dr. Cara has also researched and is writing on the early Jewish background materials for the New Testament.

As an ordained minister in the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, Dr. Cara has been very involved at both the presbytery and synod levels. He is a former vice-moderator of the denomination and for several years was the chairman of the denominational Inter-Church Relations Committee. He preaches regularly in the Charlotte area.
