Short presentation

This paragraph is not available in English, therefore the Swedish version is shown.

Lektor och docent i Nya testamentets exegetik. Mitt forskningsområde handlar om den tidiga judendomen (ca 200 f.v.t.- 100 v.t.) och den tidiga Jesus-rörelsen i den judiska kontexten. Min forskning har bl.a. varit inriktad på kvinnor i Dödahavsrullarna, uppfattningar om änglar och demoner och tempelmetaforik i Paulus brev och Dödahavsrullarna. Min nya bok som jag skrivit med Tobias Hägerland heter "Den okände Jesus: berättelsen om en profet som misslyckades" (Bokförlaget Langenskiöld, 2016).
