Specializing in Paul's letters and in Septuagint studies, Wagner seeks to contribute to the recovery of theological exegesis through careful investigation of the ways scriptural interpretation shaped early Jewish and Christian communities. His publications include Heralds of the Good News: Paul and Isaiah in Concert in the Letter to the Romans (2002), Between Gospel and Election: Explorations in the Interpretation of Romans 9-11 (coedited with Florian Wilk, 2010) and Reading the Sealed Book: Old Greek Isaiah and the Problem of Septuagint Hermeneutics (2013). Professor Wagner taught New Testament for fifteen years at Princeton Theological Seminary before moving to Duke in 2013. He serves as an ordained minister in the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church.
