Prior to joining the college in 2011, Arseny Ermakov taught courses at European Nazarene College and Nazarene Theological College (UK) at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. He has also briefly served as a pastor at St. Petersburg Church of the Nazarene, Russia.
In collaboration with Andrew Brower Latz, he has published an edited volume called Purity: Essays in Bible and Theology and recently has finished working on The Gospel of Matthew: A Commentary in Wesleyan Tradition for New Beacon Bible Commentary Series in cooperation with Robert Snow.
His primary research interests lay in the area of holiness and purity discourse in Ancient Judaism and Early Christianity as reflected in the light of new approaches to the study of ancient religions and linguistics. He also has an interest in post-structuralist methods of interpretation, the issues of multivoicedness in biblical traditions, readings of modern ideologies and cultures the light of scriptural hermeneutics, and the issues of post- and transhumanism and the Bible. The issues of effective teaching and learning in biblical studies have also taken an important place in his thinking and practice. He is a member of the Society of Biblical Literature, British New Testament Society, and Wesleyan Theological Society. He is also a Research Fellow at Australasian Centre for Wesleyan Research.
