This afternoon, I received news that the evaluation committee passed my prospectus. (A prospectus is a detailed description and plan for writing a dissertation.) So, I am now officially working on my dissertation.
For those who may be interested, the title of my dissertation will be “Mutual Edification as the Purpose of the Assembled Church in the New Testament: A Study in Biblical Theology.”
For those who may be even more interested, here is a succinct outline:
- History of Interpretation
- Historical Background
- Analysis of Primary New Testament Passages
- Analysis of Secondary New Testament Passages
