As Biblical scholar, my research areas are, listed in order of priority, the study of Pauline and Johannine texts in their ancient philosophical context; of New Testament texts in light of ancient and modern understanding of the body (gender, race, dis/ability); of the historical and contemporary reception and function of biblical traditions in society and culture – and of the translation of the Bible in light of contemporary translation studies.
