Jan Nylund

affiliated with the university, Ph.D. student in New Testament Exegesis


M.Th. in New Testament Exegesis, M.A in English linguistics (translation studies) and Biblical languages

I am a Ph.D. student in New Testament with a special focus on NT language. I have been teaching and supvervising since 2009. I began my doctoral studies in 2011 and spent a year as a visiting researcher at Tyndale House in Cambridge 2016-17 and at Stellenbosch University autumn 2017.

In my thesis project I investigate time, tense and motion in Aristotle, the Stoics and Dionysius Thrax and the implications for the understanding of tense in New Testament Greek. Other research interests include the history of NT research, Friedrich Schleiermacher and hermeneutics.

During 2013/14 I was the president of the Humanistic and theological doctoral student council and during 2014/15 of Lund Doctoral Student Union. During 2013-15 I was International Network Co-ordinator for Society of Biblical Literature's Student Advisory Board.

Visiting researcher at Tyndale House, Cambridge, spring 2018.
