My name is David Capes. My friends call me David. My students call me Dr. Capes. My children call me Dad. I like all three. I use my middle initial “B” because there are other David Capes’s out there.
I grew up in Georgia but now live in Wheaton, IL, where I serve as Dean of the School of Biblical and Theological Studies. I’m also a Professor of New Testament but I don’t often get to teach. Prior to that I serves as the Thomas Nelson Research Professor in the Department of Theology at HBU. I have authored, co-authored, edited, co-edited a number of books and a lot of articles. I was the lead scholar a new Bible translation called THE VOICE, a joint project of Thomas Nelson Publishing and Ecclesia Bible Society.
My wife, and I have been married 40+years. We love gardening and critters. Not necessarily in that order. We rescue dogs which have been abused, neglected or just need a good home. I love to read the Gabriel Allon novels by Daniel Silva and the John Rebus detective novels by Ian Rankin.
I have three children who are all grown up. When they become successful, I’m going to live with them and my grandchildren.
