My first post!

This is my very first post! My aim with this blog is to provide useful information for postgraduate and particularly PhD students in New Testament and Patristics studies.

What will make this blog unique? I will report on events, discussions and insights from scholars in and around Cambridge - UK; Nijmegen - the Netherlands; and at some stage also from two universities in Germany (to be announced later).

To give you a taster, I have recently had interesting conversations in Cambridge with prof Donald Hagner (emeritus from Fuller in the USA), prof Leander Keck (emeritus from Yale in the USA) and prof Richard Bauckham (emeritus from St Andrews in Scotland). I also attended the inaugural lecture of prof Judith Lieu at Cambridge University. Exciting stuff!

At the moment, I'm doing research at Tyndale House in Cambridge in preparation for a PhD which I hope to start sometime later this year. My research interest is particularly focused on resurrection in 1 Corinthians.

Will be nice to meet some new friends with mutual interests.

To find out more about me, you're welcome to look at my profile.

Hi Frederik,

That building in the background seems all too familiar to me!! It must be the Erasmus building in Nijmegen! I wish you all the best of luck in your PhD and in my old hometown. not be a stranger in Durham !?
