Lee has authored several books including the forthcoming monograph, Christological Rereading of the Shema in Mark’s Gospel (Mohr Siebeck). He has also been working on two co-authored volumes: a book exploring the meaning and significance of Mark 10:45, a so-called key verse of the Gospel (Lexham); and another book concerning Pauline Christology (IVP Academic). Dr. Lee is preparing several other projects including a practice workbook for second- and third-year Greek students. Lee has frequently been presenting papers at both ETS and SBL since 2008.
