Cursusdoelen
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • learn from other researchers;
  • formulate your own research questions;
  • undertake your own research, with supervision by the instructor; and
  • design and execute independent study of ancient and scholarly literature with respect to the New Testament and early Christianity.
Inhoud

This course promotes the development of professional research skills, with a specific focus on the study of the New Testament and early Christian literature. Participants will read important recent publications on a topic of their choice (e.g., ancient discussions of disability, debates/presentations of Jesus, Paul and the Gentile question, early Christian martyrdom, apocalypticism and the Dead Sea Scrolls) and write an extensive review essay that critically evaluates these studies. Students interested in taking this course are encouraged to contact the instructor to discuss possible topics and literature. 

The course further allows you to participate in the monthly meetings of the Biblical Research Seminar (formally known as the Studies in Text, Contexts, and Concepts Seminar). In doing so you gain insight into the research of biblical scholars: how they formulate their questions, how they develop and apply their methods, and how they use resources and literature in writing their articles and books. This course requires you to develop your own research using these skills, to collaborate with other researchers, and to make your own contributions to the seminar.
