Robert L. Plummer, Ph.D.
Professor of New Testament Interpretation

Dr. Robert L. Plummer reads, studies, talks, and writes about the Bible. Plummer notes, “Jesus told his adversaries, ‘You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you have eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me’” (John 5:39). Plummer adds, “The joy of studying the Scriptures is that through them we hear the voice of the living God and gaze with wonder on Messiah Jesus and the sufficiency of his atoning death.” When he is not busy teaching Greek and New Testament classes at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY, Plummer is serving as an elder at Sojourn Community Church. Plummer’s primary ministry role, however, is pastor of the little flock in his home. He and his wife, Chandi, have three delightful daughters – Sarah Beth, Chloe, and Anabelle. Plummer’s hobbies include long-distance running, enjoying international foods and cultures, and traveling.
