Dr. Daniel M. Gurtner joins Gateway Seminary in 2022 as Professor of New Testament. He has taught in seminaries since 2005, including Bethel Seminary (St Paul, MN) and Southern Seminary (Louisville, KY).

He is author/editor of fifteen books and dozens of articles. Dr. Gurtner is currently writing the Word Biblical Commentary on the Gospel of Matthew.
