Profiling Intra-Textual and Inter-Textual Reuse in Daniel 7 and 8
Supervised by Dr. William Tooman
Ethan seeks to explore the textual referents which permeate the visions of Daniel 7 and 8. His project first examines allusions, repetition, thematic parallels, etc. from these chapters to the rest of the book of Daniel, then to the rest of the Hebrew Bible, concluding with a discussion of the relationship between book-internal and book-external reuse.
Ethan is happily married to Tamara, who is also a PhD candidate in Hebrew Bible at St. Andrews. In his research, Ethan is most interested in Hebrew narrative, word-play, and how texts within the Bible interact with one another. Ethan is thrilled that his and Tamara’s first child is expected soon, not least because being a dad will finally provide an excuse for his lame jokes. After graduating, Ethan and Tamara hope to teach together and create resources for robust and accessible biblical education within the Christian church.
