Final Week of the Semester

This week marks the final week of the seminary's academic year. It is a busy week as we are ready for the final exams, the Commissioning Service for the graduating students, the Graduation Dinner and the Graduation Day. There will be streams of visitors to the seminary as families, relatives and friends of the graduands will be visiting the seminary for the graduation day.

As for the budding NT scholar, it is work as usual - there are papers to mark, report of my pastoral group to be submitted, the faculty development evaluation to be done, and preparation for the following week's faculty planning retreat.

For our long vacation, I will be spending 5 weeks at Tyndale House, Cambridge, to continue working on my book on Paul's Use of Images in the Corinthian Correspondence. This is something that I will be looking forward to, and I will be blogging about my book project in the weeks to come.

So, back to work again....even though it is almost 10.00pm already!

Hi Paul,
A nice vacation for me is to hide in one of the world's best biblial studies libraries, and perhaps throw in some English tea + scones in between :-)

Hi Pearlie,

Thanks for wishes - really hope to get some work done at Tyndale. I wish I could have a longer time off for research.
