John was born and raised in New Jersey in the Roman Catholic tradition. He was interested in the Bible from a young age and pursued this interest through academic pursuits. John graduated from Seton Hall University with a BA in Religious Studies (1981); he received a MA from New Brunswick Theological Seminary in Theology (1986); a MA from Seton Hall University in Jewish-Christian Studies (1990); a MPHIL from Fordham University in Biblical Studies (2004); and a PhD from Omega Bible Institute in Biblical Studies (2006). Although still Roman Catholic, John has embraced the Evangelical tradition regarding Biblical Interpretation because he is a staunch advocate of Biblical Inerrancy and has little regard for the Minimalist and Deconstructionalist approaches which permeate much of Biblical Criticism. His major area of concentration has been the Old Testament, with a particular focus on the Samson Narratives. John has received the "President's Award" from Omega Bible Institute for graduating with a 4.0 average. His name has appeared on several "Who's Who" lists including "Who's Who in the World" and "Who's Who in American Education." He is also a member on the "Community Editorial Board" for the Home News-Tribune, a New Jersey newspaper in which his articles concerning topics of local importance appear regularly. John has been a competitive athlete since his youth. As an adult he has found success in the field of Powerlifting, in which he has held many titles. John is an Adjunct Lecturer at St. Peter's College, Jersey City, New Jersey, and on the Adjunct staff at Omega Bible Institute. John has been an ABR Associate since March, 2009.
