Dr. Gilberto A. Ruiz is Assistant Professor of Theology at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH. Before joining Saint Anselm College, he taught in the Loyola Institute for Ministry of Loyola University New Orleans as Assistant Professor of Scripture. His research interests include studying the gospels in light of concrete realities experienced by the early Christians in the context of Second Temple Judaism and the Roman Empire, and interpreting scripture through perspectives that foreground the experiences and identities of readers today, especially from minority perspectives and Latino/a perspectives in particular. In addition to contributing short exegetical articles for Feasting on the Gospels: John, Volume 1 (ed. Cynthia A. Jarvis and E. Elizabeth Johnson; Westminster John Knox, 2015), he completed a dissertation at Emory University titled “Temple Commerce and John 2:13-22” that is currently being revised into a book manuscript.
