Mariam J. Kovalishyn

Assistant Professor, New Testament Studies
BA (Davidson College); MA (Denver Seminary); PhD (University of St. Andrews)
Mariam Kamell Kovalishyn joined the faculty at Regent College in 2010 in a three-year postdoctoral fellowship. She was then appointed Assistant Professor of New Testament in August 2013.

The majority of Mariam Kovalishyn's research has centered on the epistle of James, with an MA thesis on the role of "wisdom" in the epistle and a PhD thesis on the soteriology of the epistle. Both of these projects involved extensive work in both Jewish wisdom literature of the Hebrew Bible and Intertestamental period as well as in the gospel of Matthew.

Mariam Kovalishyn has co-authored a commentary on James (Zondervan), has published several articles in books and journals, and is currently working on a biblical theology of social justice (for Zondervan). She has a diversity of interests including music (both making and listening), hiking, skiing, backpacking, art (painting and now pottery), and spending time with her nephews and niece. She grew up in a conservative Baptist church in Western New York, was on staff at Scum of the Earth Church in Denver, and attended a Scottish Episcopal Church in St. Andrews. She currently lives in Vancouver with her husband, Val, and son, Peter.

Mariam Kovalishyn will be on leave in the 2017-18 academic year.
