Dean Furlong (PhD, VU Amsterdam)
Dean is fellow researcher of the CCBI. He resides in the US. In his dissertation he investigated the development of Johannine narratives in early Christian sources. His future plans include examining the implications of his doctoral research for the question of the authorship of the Johannine works and the identity of the Beloved Disciple.
Promovendus Jaap Haasnoot
In my research I am focussing on how ordinary readers in South Sudan read the Bible. For that reason I will work with South Sudanese Christian groups in three different locations in that country. I will then compare my findings from South Sudan with Western ‘mainstream’ exegesis and analyse the results. My aim is that this research will give more insight into (1) how context influences Bible interpretation and (2) how a process of intercultural sharing will help to discover one’s own ‘blind spots’ and give a possibly different understanding of the Bible. The result of this research might in the third place help us in the further development of an intercultural hermeneutics.

Jacob Haasnoot is a missionary and an Anglican priest and he lives in Kampala, Uganda. From 2010-2015 he was a lecturer at a small theological school in Kajo-Keji, South Sudan.

PhD candidate (NWO) Eva van Urk
At the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, I am investigating theological perspectives on ecological responsibility. My main focus is the concept of imago Dei, that is, the idea that humans have been created in the image of God (cf. Genesis 1:26-28). What is the potential of using the concept of imago Dei to address the issue of human-caused extinction and to stir ecological responsibility?
Jacobie M. H. Visser
Jacobie is currently busy with her PhD in New Testament, with the specific focus on ancient masculinities and poverty intersecting in the epistle of James. The title of her dissertation is: "Perfecting poverty: a rhetorical investigation of poverty and masculinities intersecting in James." Her research interests include gender studies, in general, and more specifically masculinity studies, and to date, she has focussed most of her attention on the epistles of James and 1 Peter and (their) contextual biblical interpretation in South Africa.
dr. Martin van Wijngaarden
Dr. Martin van Wijngaarden is kerkhistoricus en predikant van de lutherse gemeente Rotterdam. Hij onderzoekt vooral identiteitsgevoelige aspecten in de Nederlandse lutherse kerkgeschiedenis, doorgaans in relatie met architectuur, kunst en materialiteit. In een nu lopend onderzoek wordt de focus verbreed naar de wijze waarop het voor de lutheranen in de Nederlanden belangrijkste belijdenisgeschrift, de Augsburgse Confessie (1530), functioneerde en ook nog steeds functioneert.
