The School of Theology at the University of Auckland is advertising for a Biblical Studies lecturer with specialisation in Hebrew Bible. So, if you’re an Old/First Testament kind of person, you dream in Hebrew, and you want an Antipodean lifestyle, now’s your chance.
Ah, the choices we make. I was really torn between Old Testament and Christian Thought and History in my studies. I’d done all the OT BD papers available (including the Hebrew options for Psalms and Pentateuch). Opted for theology, and now all the jobs around seem to be in OT. B*gger.
Still, managed to do a theology thesis relating to the imago Dei that had a chunk of OT exegesis behind it, and the ‘Eighth Century Prophets’ paper I did significantly informed social justice aspects in the thesis, too.
