Welcome CSNTM’s 2019–2020 Interns!

10/3/2019

The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts is excited to welcome its newest class of interns! This cohort of talented graduate students has the opportunity to study the field of New Testament textual criticism, work directly with the Center’s collection of digital images, and gain valuable research skills in a collaborative environment. They play a vital role in our mission to preserve, share, and study Greek New Testament manuscripts, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to mentor, inspire, and work alongside each of these students.

 

Take a moment to meet this year’s cohort:

What are you excited to learn or do in your internship this year? 

As someone fairly new to studying the Greek language and New Testament manuscripts, I am excited to learn the tools for higher level scholarship that help us make decisions about our translations of biblical texts. Working with CSNTM puts me at the ground level of that scholarship, which I look forward to strengthening my foundational approach to seeking the truth.
