The School of Divinity is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr T.J. Lang as Lecturer in New Testament, starting in August 2016.Very good news indeed.
Dr Lang comes to St Andrews from Durham University, where he was Lecturer in New Testament Studies. Dr Lang's PhD is in New Testament and Early Christianity from Duke University. He is the author of Mystery and the Making of a Christian Historical Consciousness: From Paul to the Second Century (de Gruyter, 2015) and articles published or forthcoming in journals such as Journal for the Study of the New Testament, Biblical Interpretation, Catholic Biblical Quarterly, Zeitschrift für die neutestamentliche Wissenschaft, Journal of Theological Studies, and New Testament Studies.
Dr Lang is interested in supervising PhD students in a range of areas related to the New Testament and early Christianity and is happy to discuss proposals with potential students. The focus of his research, however, has been on Paul and the reception history of Pauline traditions, the Synoptic Gospels and John, and second-century Christianity. His current research is on Paul’s conception of time and history and broader issues of Christian epistemology. We look forward to welcoming him here in the summer.
