Dr. Jeremiah Coogan is an alumnus of Wheaton College’s Classical Languages major. He earned his Ph.D. at the University of Notre Dame. His work there, soon to be published by Oxford University Press, focused on Eusebius of Caesarea’s fourth-century reconfiguration of the Gospels as a window into broader questions of technology and textuality in early Christianity and the late ancient Mediterranean. Presently, he is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow in the Faculty of Theology and Religion at the University of Oxford. He is also the 2021 Paul J. Achtemeier Award for New Testament Scholarship Recipient. In this episode, he talks about his beginnings in Greek and the beginning of Luke’s Gospel: What does Luke’s use of the word translated as “undertaken” signify about the background and purpose of his work?
