Kevin Mcfadden

Kevin McFadden

Professor of New Testament, School of Divinity

Kevin McFadden teaches New Testament courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. Before coming to Cairn he studied New Testament Interpretation at Southern Seminary and taught for three years in the Christian Studies department at Louisiana College. He is originally from Michigan.

One of his most formative experiences was a mission trip through Inter-City Baptist Church to Tanzania where he saw the sufficiency of Scripture in action as God used his word to build up his people.

Brian Luther

Dr. Brian Luther teaches various Bible classes, including Pentateuch, Old Testament, wisdom literature, and the Gospels.  His research interests include ancient Jewish and Christian biblical interpretation, as well as interpreting and applying biblical narrative today.

Before pursuing biblical studies, Dr. Luther earned his doctorate in electrical engineering.  Among more serious pursuits, this background prepared him to coach a high school robotics team, an opportunity that he looks forward to having again someday.

What Our Students Have To Say

"Cairn’s Biblical Studies program has taught me a great deal on the importance of Biblical and Systematic theology within one’s exegesis and hermeneutic when approaching the Scriptures. This program is one that I am proud to be a part of, and am glad that I’ve had the ability to study under such great professors!"
