born 1977, Th.D. and reader ("docent") in New Testament exegesis.

With a background in the fields of ancient history and classical Greek I have a particular interest in how New Testament texts functioned in the ancient Greek and Roman world. In my thesis I investigated how texts were orally delivered in antiquity and what that implies when it comes to the performance of New Testament writings, the Gospel of John in particular.

I am currently involved in four major avenues of research: early Christian reading culture, hymns in the New Testament, literary style in antiquity, and Bible translation.


About the research

I focus on the public reading (or: performance) of New Testament texts in the first two centuries C.E., as well as on issues of style and stylistic analysis of early Christian texts.
