Dr. Garry Jost, religious studies faculty, has contributed to the Textual History of the Ethiopic Old Testament Project.

Dr. Jost and other collaborators, under the direction of project Director Dr. Steve Delamarter, George Fox Evangelical Seminary, have transcribed an electronic text of the Old Testament Book of Obadiah. The text is written in the ancient Ethiopic language, which is still used as the liturgical language of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. This transcription has been published online by Dr. Ran HaCohen, Tel Aviv University.

Dr. Jost's areas of expertise include the ancient Ethiopic language, a Semitic language related to Hebrew, the religious history and book culture of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, and computer processing of biblical texts and the history of variants in these texts.
