Research Topic
The Temple in Greco-Roman Perspective
Supervised by Prof N. T. Wright

Ethan’s research examines Paul’s temple imagery from the perspective of his Gentile readers. He hopes to clarify the extent to which Paul’s use of such imagery challenges pagan assumptions and therefore shed light on the function of this imagery in its rhetorical context.
