Here we go! PhD in Nijmegen!
Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands with a rich and colourful history. In terms of theology, the most famous theologian associated with Nijmegen is undoubtedly the controversial Edward Schillebeeckx.
More recently the influential Gospel of John scholar professor Jan van der Watt, formerly from the University of Pretoria, South Africa joined the faculty. He is currently the General editor of the Review of Biblical Literature. I am so grateful for the opportunity to do my PhD under him.

I am flying out to Nijmegen next week and will share some of my experiences in due course. I am so thankful towards God for this opportunity. The picture to the right is of professor Jan van der Watt.
