Matt began his service at ADC in July 2016, and his teaching responsibilities include Old Testament, Hebrew, and biblical interpretation courses. He also serves as the Dean of Students.

An alum of McMaster University’s Religious Studies department and a recipient of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Doctoral Fellowship, Matt’s dissertation investigated how angelic beliefs contributed to the identity of the community responsible for the Dead Sea Scrolls. It has been published in the WUNT 2 series (Mohr Siebeck, 2019), and his research interests continue to be in the texts and history of Second Temple Period Judaism, angelology, apocalyptic literature, the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament, and religious identity in early Judaism and Christianity. Matt is an active member of the Society of Biblical Literature, the Canadian Society of Biblical Studies, and the International Organization of Qumran Studies.
