Curt teaches Greek and New Testament text courses at ACU. He also teaches frequently at the Institute for Theology and Christian Ministry in St. Petersburg, Russia. Curt’s area of specialization is textual research. He has done work for a number of international collaborations including the Dead Sea Scrolls Project (for which he edited one of the scrolls of Daniel), the International Greek New Testament Project (for which he collates manuscripts), and the International Project on the Text of Acts (for which he studied the origin of the Greek text underlying the Ethiopian Version of the book). His work has been published in Discoveries in the Judaean Desert (the official publication of the Dead Sea Scrolls), in Festschriften, and in several scholarly journals.

He and his wife, Deborah, have a special heart for children, having served as foster parents for nine years. They also have a keen interest in missions, especially in Europe. Deborah grew up on the mission field near Vienna, Austria, and works as the Administrative Coordinator for the Halbert Institute for Missions.
