Super advice for aspiring New Testament PhD students

I have been super busy over the past week teaching an intensive Bible Interpretation class (in Lima, Peru of all places).  Thus, I have not been able to make timely updates to this blog.

However, I just ran across a very complete and brilliant article by Nijay Gupta of Seattle Pacific University for anyone who is considering entering a PhD program in New Testament.

He provides sound advice for sizing up the challenge, the difficulty of getting into a PhD program, practical considerations, First Tier vs. Second Tier schools and their associated pros and cons, academic preparation necessary and a host of other important considerations.

The link is below and is well worth a complete and meticulous read for aspiring New Testament PhD students.
