Dr. Ray Lubeck
Bible & Theology Professor, Multnomah University
My name (and officially preferred title) is Ray. I was born a Texan to Canadian parents and German grandparents. I grew up in deserts, but now I live in green, green Portland. I drive either my MINI Cooper or Ram 4×4, and like smoked oyster pizza, playing guitar and bass, hanging with our adult kids and young grandkids, and watching “wildlife” like Seahawks and Ducks. I’ve taught at Multnomah for over a century and a half (in dog years). I’ve had my ‘stache for 7.2 years (in Celsius). And I’ve been happily married for over three and a half decades (normal years) to my wife, Tamara (actually, far better than normal). After graduating from Multnomah, I attended five different graduate schools in four different countries on three different continents. I am now a professor and so I still go to school every day. And I’m thankful for that every morning!
The Bible is under attack by many people in our contemporary world. Bestselling authors have literally capitalized on people's ignorance of how the Bible came into being. This course will explain how God has communicated his message to us in the Bible.
