As regular readers of this blog will know, I sat some rather horrible exams recently. As some people will know, I ended up doing rather well in them, graca de Deus. Given how difficult I found some of the papers, and given the fact I'd been working for two years aiming to learn stuff for ministry not stuff for exams, it came as a huge surprise to me to end up winning one of the University prizes.
In fact, the Wycliffe contingent in the exams did rather well overall. We ended up having three people in the top 5 in the university at Theology. I'd therefore like to take the opportunity to publicly thank some of the people who helped a lot.
Foremost among these is Peter Southwell, legendary (and now sadly retired) Senior Tutor at Wycliffe, and in charge of the course, as well as tutoring large chunks of it. Another special mention should go to David Wenham for helping us to see what a godly, humble and profoundly evangelical approach to Scripture looks like. Also to my other great tutors - Nick King, Michael Steenberg, Charlotte Methuen, Benno van den Torren, John Muddiman and Peter Harrison - many thanks.
To God alone be the glory!
