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.

In addition to contributing short exegetical articles for Feasting on the Gospels: John, Volume 1 (ed. Cynthia A. Jarvis and E.
