Paul Kang-Kul Cho
Assistant Professor of Hebrew Bible

Paul K.-K. Cho began teaching at Wesley Theological Seminary in 2013. 

His interests center on the interpretation of the Hebrew Bible, with emphasis on its literary texture and modes of producing meaning, particularly as they relate to the innovation and creation of worldviews and theologies. 

His teaching interests include a range of biblical books and topics and focus on the biblical text as a window onto its theological, political, and social significance in both ancient and modern contexts.

Cho is Presbyterian and served local congregations in New Haven and Toronto in a variety of roles, including children's ministry director and interim pastor.  He is currently a member of State College Presbyterian Church.
