Daniel Mikkelsen

Thesis title: What is the specific material of the resurrection body in Paul and how does it affect salvation?


Daniel Mikkelsen is a PhD candidate in New Testament and Christian Origins. He is currently researching the material of the resurrection body and how it impacts salvation in Paul's letters. The aim of this research is to better understand the material reality of the resurrection body within Paul's thinking and what specific implications this has on how Paul articulates salvation in his letters.

Daniel also has a passion for koine Greek and wants to inspire more people to study it, and thus he run a Greek tutoring company called NT Greek Tutoring.
