In September 2011 I was accepted as a doctoral student in New Testament Studies. In my dissertation project I investigate the Christological and ecclesiological meaning of the anointing in Bethany in the Gospel of John (12:1-8). I have taught the New Testament section on the Courses Central Concepts of the Bible and The New Testament in Translation at CTR, and have served as assistant and secretary.
