“In twenty years, we would have the Lord raise up 20 Ethiopian experts in Hebrew and Old Testament. I love to see that happen in 20 years. That is the thing I’m praying for.” Said the scholar in a brief interview. Furthermore, the instructor believes that the Old Testament can speak into the lives of Ethiopians in a great depth and also Ethiopians have the potential for unique insight into the Old Testament in a way that can contribute to the rest of the world. Nathnael Veltman, coming from Fuller Theological Seminary has specialization on Theology and Development. He will be of a great support for the department of Masters in Development Studies. As part of its institutional culture, EGST has prepared a half day orientation for newly admitted students on Saturday the 24 th of August, 2019.
