Leigh Trevaskis is the Principal, as well as an occasional lecturer in Old Testament and Hebrew. Leigh has undertaken research in science as well as the Old Testament. His focus in the former was on ruminants which has some overlap with his research on the latter, the Book of Leviticus. Leigh’s work on Leviticus examines how Israel may have read and applied the sacrificial and purity texts in Leviticus.
Leigh’s interest in theological education emerges from his lifelong desire to understand how the historic Christian faith remains plausible, even persuasive, within a modern context. He particularly enjoys listening to people bring alive the literary artistry of the Old Testament.
Leigh has more than 8 years of experience lecturing on the Old Testament at Sydney Mission and Bible College and Queensland Theological College. Outside work he enjoys catching up with friends, reading, and getting out with his family.
