Biblical Studies have been at the core of research and teaching in the Faculty for centuries. The Faculty is at the cutting-edge of research on the Jewish and Graeco-Roman context of the New Testament, the Gospels, the letters of Paul and other New Testament writers, as well as on the reception of New Testament Texts in antiquity. The New Testament Subject Group maintains a website providing useful information for potential and current students. Its Twitter feed provides regular updates on events and opportunities.
The Hebrew Bible and Old Testament subject area incorporates the study and interpretation of the Hebrew Bible, Hebrew language and text, biblical archaeology, and Israelite identity and religion. The Hebrew Bible and Old Testament Subject Group maintains an area of this website, and a Twitter feed. Scholars in Biblical Studies work closely with colleagues in the Faculties of Classics and Oriental Studies.
