Here we go! PhD in Nijmegen!

I have just been informed that I've been accepted as PhD candidate in New Testament at the department of Theology, Radboud University, Nijmegen, in the Netherlands!

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.

The university is also famous for early church and patristic research and often referred to as the "Nijmegen School".

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. For one of his recent publications, click on the link

 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.

Ferdie, so nice chatting to you today. I want to pop a DVD into the mail for you that I got today - very interesting viewing by a Prof in Pure Mathematics from Oxford. I just have to find a way of duplicating it first. Blessings. Steve.
