Johnson is an American New Testament scholar and the J. Davison Philips Professor of New Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary.

A Huntington native, she is widely known for her writings on the New Testament, specifically the Pauline letters.

Her work explores the ways the church uses the Bible to think about faith and life with an emphasis on families and family values.

She is drawn to exploring how the Pauline letters invite us to reflect about who God is and what Jesus’ death and Resurrection means for human life and society.
