Jon-Paul Lapeña is a third-year Master of Divinity candidate at Harvard Divinity School where he focuses on New Testament texts and early Christian origins, and he is also involved in hospital chaplaincy at North Shore Medical Center. His research interests center on health care and healing practices of the early Jesus movements, with particular attention on the directionality and flow of physiognomic attitudes toward physical and mental disability. Jon-Paul's current research project explores the attitudes toward alcoholism in the Apostle Paul's letters and its effect on modern-day stigma against addiction.
