Proposed Title

The Prophetic Vocation of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew: A Narrative and Socio-Historical Study

Research

Matthew's Gospel makes mention of prophets and prophecy more than any other canonical Gospel, and yet its perspective on the subject has generally been neglected within biblical scholarship. In Matthew's story, the prophetic vocation of Jesus is a central Christological theme. My study seeks to draw attention to it, and to contribute to the understanding of Matthew's distinctive perspective on the subject.

Why I chose CSU

I came to study at CSU through a fairly simple process: at the conclusion of my Masters, my supervisor suggested that CSU (and United Theological College) would be excellent institutions in which to study for my PhD. Turns out he was right!
