Biblical and Theological Studies |New Testament

I began to seriously contemplate undertaking theological studies after perceiving the need for contextualized biblical and theological materials while working with SIM-Ethiopia. I enrolled at EGST in 2011, which was the beginning of an incredible journey through which God has slowly but surely revealed my place in theological education – both as a student and an educator.

In late 2016 I began my PhD Studies at Durham University in the UK as part of the EGST Faculty Development Programme and I hope to finish my studies and take up a position as part of the faculty in 2020. My research looks at the reception of New Testament in the development of ascetic thought in Patristic and ancient Ethiopic texts.
