Rebecca teaches some of the New Testament and Greek courses. She is also in the final stages of writing up her doctoral dissertation for the University of Oxford, which treats claims to religious experience within the Acts of the Apostles and within the Lord Our Righteousness Church, a contemporary New Religious Movement. Her wider research interests include socio-anthropological and narrative-critical approaches to biblical interpretation, and experiences of ‘alternative reality’, particularly their appropriation within religious communities. Rebecca has completed a bachelor’s degree in Theology at the University of Birmingham, and a master’s degree in New Testament Theology at the University of Oxford. She has also worked in the UK as a youth worker for the United Reformed Church, and in Far East Russia as a teacher and support worker for a children’s homelessness charity. She is a member of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) and the European Association of Biblical Studies (EABS).
