He also teaches Classical and Biblical Greek, Latin and Hebrew through his website and runs various reading groups, including one looking at LGBTQ-themed texts from throughout the Ancient Greek world. Jordan holds a BA (Wales) and MA (Durham) in Biblical Studies and Theology. His doctoral thesis for Staffordshire University (2017) is titled 'Finding Lacan: St Paul and the Paradox of Jouissance,' and uses continental philosophy and psychoanalysis to study the Bible. Over the past decade he has been increasingly interested in Classical languages, which now make up about half of his teaching. Other projects have included research into the experiences of LGBT African asylum seekers, and papers presented at academic conferences, mostly on St. Paul and philosophy.
