Associate Professor of New Testament

Dr. Eike Mueller spent his childhood back and forth between Europe and the United States. This international background continued after he began his formal theological training in Austria before completing his undergraduate degree at Southern Adventist University in Tennessee, USA. He followed this up with a Master of Divinity degree at Andrews University (Michigan, USA) followed up by continuous education units in Europe. His pastoral experience also includes a variety of settings, pastoring several churches in the United States and in Germany.

His interest in the intersection of New Testament studies with the Hebrew Bible and Intertestamental period led to his doctoral studies at Andrews University where he completed the interdisciplinary degree of Doctor of Theology in Old and New Testament.

In 2014 Eike Mueller joined AIIAS in the Biblical Studies department. He is married to Lubica and they have two daughters.

Eike Mueller has presented on topics related to eschatology, Sabbath, creation and is working on topics on New Testament anthropology and Mark’s passion narrative at the 2019 Society of Biblical Literature session. He is also the Assistant Editor of the Seventh-day Adventist Biblical-Theological Dictionary and working on an upcoming commentary on 2 Corinthians.
