born 1981, M.Th.; M.A. from University of Gothenborg. Since September 2010 I am doctoral student in New Testament exegesis. My research concerns how Jesus is presented as leader in the Gospel of Matthew.


About the research

My research project focuses on the leadership of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew. Through a biographical-narrative method, I examine how Jesus is portrayed as a leader in the gospel. Matthew's portrait is compared with other ancient biographies which give portraits of good leaders.
