Jin Hwan Lee has taught courses at several colleges and seminaries in Toronto, including Wycliffe College, University of Toronto.
Jin Hwan Lee uses research on social dynamics in associations and meals in the Greco-Roman era to challenge long-held assumptions about the social organization of early Christ groups. This investigation will require scholars of early Christianity not only to revisit many suppositions about the meal conflicts in the Corinthian communities Paul addressed but also to reconsider accepted depictions of the early Christ groups more broadly. -- Susan (Elli) Elliott, Convening Collaborator, Shining Mountain Institute
