SCD Centre for Gospels Research

Promoting research into the Gospels and Acts from a variety of methodological perspectives.

Centre for Gospels Research

“Why should a 21st century person read these 1st century documents? Because although firmly anchored in the 1st century, Jesus Christ comes to the world as the key for all centuries to come. Always relevant, always contemporary, because a man has risen from the dead. And because we therefore know God has become flesh and dwelt amongst us for a little while.

The Gospels bring us to that set of events that herald that greatest of all manifestations when God became flesh.”

Associate Professor Peter Bolt

The SCD Centre for Gospels Research promotes research into the four Gospels and, due to the connections with Luke, the Book of Acts.  It seeks to foster better understanding of these foundational documents of historical Christianity,  and encourages research from a variety of methodological perspectives, including historical, archaeological, theological, exegetical, literary, sociological, feminist, and text-critical approaches.
