    The nature of Pauline glossolalia and its early reception2019In: Scottish journal of theology, ISSN 0036-9306, E-ISSN 1475-3065, Vol. 72, no 2, p. 182-190Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Glossolalia is a phenomenon that has perplexed biblical scholars for generations. This paper challenges the majority view that glossolalia in the New Testament refers to ecstatic utterances and argues that the only independent New Testament testimony of the phenomenon is found in 1 Corinthians.

    In the Junction between History and Future: A Minor Field Study about Identity and Faith of Armenian Orthodox Youth in a Minority Situation in Jerusalem2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    My first contact with the Armenians of Jerusalem was during a four day Minor Field Study in February 2015.1 Before that I hardly knew anything about the community that has such a long history in the region. Despite their lengthy presence in what is commonly known as the Holy Land, the fact that they are joint custodians of the Christian Holy places and even have a whole quarter named after them in the Old City, they seem to be somewhat of a mystery to most people that visit. They are a minority that hold on to many of their distinct features regarding religion and culture from their homeland, something that is the trademarks of what is commonly known as a diaspora. The importance of culture and faith for the Armenian people seemed to be stressed time after another during my research. Pride was expressed to have endured as a people through many hardships. The Armenian Genocide stands out as the most significant of the many sufferings. Alongside with the traumatic consequences of the genocide is the ongoing struggle fought on many fronts for global recognition of the atrocities committed against their people.The largest group of Armenians in Jerusalem are situated in the Armenian Quarter. At the center of both the territorial and the structural composition of this community lies the convent of Saint James. Not only does the brotherhood of Saint James, consisting of about 30 brothers, and other clergy reside inside the convents premises. The majority consists of lay people. The lay community though has been decreasing for a number of years.2 If the current trend continues it may, according to some predictions, even vanish in the future.3 A gloomy outcome that would radically change the makeup of the Old City of Jerusalem.Therefore, after my first Minor Field Study, I went back four times during the coming year to learn more. I was also granted a scholarship through Stockholm School of Theology to conduct a Minor Field Study among Armenian youth. When first voicing my interest to interview youth and learn more about their identity I was told by a local contact that it would be futile. Because of the pressures of everyday life in Jerusalem few youth would have something relevant to share. They are forced to live day by day due to the ongoing conflicts. A strong statement that cannot be taken as true without evidence. This confirms the importance of conducting a more in depth study concerning how Armenian youth reflect on identity and belonging. The very existence of a future Armenian community in Jerusalem depends on their youths desire and ability to remain in the City.

    Jona psalm: dess teologi och funktion i Jona bok2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Jona bok är inte bara en av Bibelns mest välkända berättelser utan är också en del avvärldslitteraturen. I den bibliska uppdelningen tillhör boken de så kallade skriftprofeterna ochtolkas således som en profetisk text. Trots detta skiljer sig boken från Gamla testamentetsövriga skriftprofeter då Jona bok snarare är en berättelse om en profet än en samling avprofetens ord (Andersson et al. 2003:163; Childs 1979:422). Dessutom kallas Jona aldrigprofet i boken och hans uppdrag är inte att predika för Israel utan för invånarna i denMesopotamiska staden Nineve. Detta är något som Jona motsätter sig vilket resulterar i ettmisslyckat flyktförsök från Gud och slutligen Bibelns kortaste och mest effektiva predikan(Nogalski 2018:210). Till skillnad från övriga skriftprofeter så är berättelsen dessutom skriveni prosaform istället för småprofeternas igenkännande poesi, med undantag för 2:3-10 vilket ären psalm (Achtemeier 1996:255). Inbrytandet av denna psalm har i forskningen kring Jonabok varit mycket omdiskuterad, och det är om denna psalm som min uppsats kommer atthandla.

    Kristenblivande: Fallstudium av sex växande församlingar i Equmeniakyrkan2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna kvalitativa studie avser att undersöka vilka faktorer i församlingars arbete och människors bakgrund som bidrar till kristenblivande. Sex Equmeniaförsamlingar som välkomnat många nya medlemmar på bekännelse, det vill säga medlemmar som blivit medlemmar i en församling för första gången, undersöks genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med församlingarnas föreståndare. Vilka praktiker, kvaliteter och erfarenheter bidrar enligt församlingsföreståndarna till att människor blir kristna och går med i en församling? Resultatet analyseras och diskuteras med hjälp av deprivationsteorin, praktiskt-teologiska mönster för kristenblivande och tidigare forskning. Studien pekar på att de praktiker som bidrar till kristenblivande är kontaktskapande, diakonalt arbete, undervisning om kristen tro, attraktiva gudstjänster och praktiker förbekännelse och bekräftelse av tro. Kvaliteter som verkar bidra är en välkomnande öppenhet kombinerat med tydlighet om Jesus och evangeliet. De människor som kommer till tro har ofta bakgrund med någon form av deprivation. Kristenblivandet är i flera fall en process som pågår över tid även för dem som har tydliga avgörelsetillfällen. Kontakt med kristna personer som har bjudit med till församlingarnas mötesplatser tycks i flera fall ha varit avgörande förkristenblivandet.

    Composite Artistry in the Book of Numbers: A Study in Biblical Narrative Conventions2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The present thesis discusses the coherence or lack of coherence in the book of Numbers, with special regard to its narrative features. The fragmented nature of Numbers is a well-known problem in research on the book, affecting how we approach and interpret it, but to date there has not been any thorough investigation of the narrative features of the work and how they might contribute to the coherence or the lack of coherence in the book. The discussion is pursued in light of narrative theory, and especially in connection to three parameters that are typically understood to be invoked in the interpretation of narratives: 1) a narrative paradigm, or ‘story,’ meaning events related to each other temporally, causally, and thematically, in a plot with a beginning, middle, and end; 2) discourse, being the expression plane of a narrative, or the devices that an author has at hand in constructing a narrative; 3) the situation or language-game of the narrative, prototypical examples being factual reports, which seeks to depict a state of affairs, and storytelling narratives, driven by a demand for tellability. In view of these parameters the present thesis argues that it is reasonable to form four groups to describe the narrative material of Numbers: genuine narratives (e.g. Num 12), independent narrative sequences (e.g. Num 5:1-4), instrumental scenes and situations (e.g. Num 27:1-5), and narrative fragments (e.g. Num 18:1). These groups are mixed throughout with non-narrative materials. Seen together, however, the narrative features of these groups can be understood to create an attenuated narrative sequence from beginning to end in Numbers, where one thing happens after another. This sequence, termed the ‘larger story’ of Numbers, concerns the wandering of Israel from Sinai to Moab. Furthermore, the larger story has a fragmented plot. The end-point is fixed on the promised land, Israel prepares for the wandering towards it (Num 1-10), rebels against wandering and the promise and is sent back into the wilderness (Num 13-14), returns again after forty years (Num 21ff.), and prepares for conquering the land (Num 22-36). Finally, themes of the promised land, generational succession, and obedience-disobedience, operate in this larger story. Purity is also a significant theme in the book, albeit not connected to plot in the larger story. All in all, sequence, plot, and theme in the larger story of Numbers can be understood to bring some coherence to the book. However, neither aspect entirely subsumes the whole book, and the four groups of narrative materials can also be understood to underscore the incoherence of the work in differentiating its variegated narrative contents. Numbers should therefore be described as an anthology of different materials that are loosely connected through its narrative features in the larger story, with the aim of informing Israelite identity by depicting a certain period in the early history of the people.

    Generations, Credo, and Punishment in the book of Numbers: A Key to to Its Theology and  Composition in Persian Times2022Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The significance of generational change for understanding the book of Numbers is often taken for granted. It was Dennis Olson’s study of 1985 that put the spotlight on this theme. Of the several conclusions drawn by Olson, two are highlighted here: that Numbers portray two contrasting generations and promote the new over the old, and that this portrayal is consistent with the redactional structure or final form of Numbers. These two conclusions are taken as starting points in sketching the compositional provenance theologically of the book in Persian times in light of recent research. 

    Four contexts are inquired into: the origin of the so called Israelite credo in the Spy story (14:18) in light of form criticism and inscriptional evidence; the parallel text of the Golden calf-episode in Exod 32–34, which also features the credo and relates to covenantal theology; and the idea of generational punishment being refuted in Ezekiel 18 and replaced in the books of Chronicles. 

    Together these contexts show that Numbers has a timely message concerning the forgiveness and opportunities of the new generation standing on the edge of the promised land in the book, which may be read as a stand-in for the Yahweh-believing communities in Persian times.

    Människans synd och Guds svar: Om att läsa Urhistorien som problemformulering2021In: Öppna vyer – lång sikt: Festskrift till Owe Kennerberg / [ed] Thomas Kazen och Susanne Wigorts Yngvesson, Bromma: Enskilda Högskolan Stockholm , 2021, p. 101-112Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the nature of the Primeval History and more specifically if there is a complication formulated here, that is later taken up or answered somehow in the rest of Genesis (or the Pentateuch). This is formulated as a question of if we can say that there is a plot in Genesis. Scholars such as Gerhard von Rad, David Clines, and Todd Patterson are reviewed. In dialogue with historical-critical research it is concluded that the relationship of the Primeval History to what follows is best understood in terms formulated by Georg Nicol as "rolling-plot," where a certain formulation of plot is not strictly followed to a denouement, but rather taken up and amended in a slightly different direction.

    The Bitter Effect of the Water in the Sotah-Ritual (Num 5:11-31): Holiness and Impurity in Conflict2023Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Sotah-ritual in Num 5:11–31 has been the focus of many interpretations, part of which is how we understand what the potion used in the ritual is supposed to do. Among these Roy E. Gane has argued that it is the dynamic of holiness versus impurity that creates the effect of the potion (2016), and Yitzhaq Feder that the waters so to speak seek out the impurity of another man’s seed in the woman and punish her (2022). But what is the rationale behind this? While it is impossible to know the details, the line of argument followed in this paper is to say that the genitive mey ha’arim (water of bitterness, v. 18, 19, 23) should be understood objectively as indicating what the ritual is about, and not indicating the harmful effect of the potion. At the same time, the text describes that upon taking the potion the woman’s womb discharge and her uterus will drop (v. 22). So how does this come about if the potion in itself is not harmful?  The argument made here is that this is because the potion is considered holy, in that holy water is used for it (v. 17), while the woman is considered (potentially) impure (v. 27), and that it is this meeting of holy and impure that creates the harmful effect. This understanding is strengthened by the use of dust in the ritual (v. 17). It is not described as holy, but it is taken from the floor of the (holy) tabernacle. Furthermore, rituals in Zoroastrian religion during Persian times, roughly contemporary with the composition of the book of Numbers, use dust for purification, thus forming suggestive parallels to interpret the Sotah.

    The Facts of Life before God and the Prophetic Peculiarity: Three Illness Narratives of the  Hebrew Bible2017In: Diegesis, E-ISSN 2195-2116, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 32-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) is a canonical text for many including its portrayals of illness. This article explores the narrative representation of illness in three longer narratives in the Hebrew Bible by means of a close reading. The narratives are all legends of some sort and involve terminal or impossible illnesses and the prophet. In 2 Kings 4 the story revolves around illness as an enigma and involves the motifs of hospitality, responsibility, and empowerment in an ever expanding plot. In 2 Kings 5 leprosy as an incurable disease stands at the center and the story develops through several contrasting motifs including greatness, simplicity, and humility. In 2 Kings 20/Isaiah 38 illness is a death warrant leading to bitterness, and the story probes the necessity and honesty of prayer. Two common traits in the narratives are prayer and argument as a response to illness, and the status of the prophet as a health care consultant.

    Abstract [en]

    Suggests that narrative features bring some coherence to the book of Numbers, but not total. The narrative features are here here sorted into four rough groups, which both contribute to and disrupt the coherence of the work. The article is a prequel to my doctoral thesis.

    The Theology of Holiness and Purity in the Book of Numbers2023Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Themes of land, rebellion, punishment and forgiveness, generational change, and death have all been subjects of theological interpretation of the book of Numbers, but holiness and purity less so. Typically, those themes have instead been treated as part of analyses of purity rules and in relationship to the book of Leviticus. However, both on literary and historical grounds there are reasons to distinguish Numbers from the rest of the Pentateuch. Thus, Num 1–10 to a large extent revolve around preparations for the wandering through the wilderness, but this includes organizing the Israelites around the tabernacle. If the Holiness Code extends holiness in regard of persons and places (cf. Milgrom), Numbers orders these in zones and grading (chs. 1–4), and introduces purity rules to uphold the purity of the camp (5:1–4 and following). Further, Num 11–21 feature several murmuring stories but in distinction to those found in Exodus 15–18, they emphasize punishment and also purity and holiness motifs, such as Miriam’s skin disease (Num 12), the rebellion of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram involving offering incense (Num 16–17), and Moses and Aaron not holding God holy at Meribah (Num 20). Significantly, several of them take place close to Kadesh, meaning holiness. Again, Num 22–36 to a large extent depict preparations for entering the promised land, and present purity rules concerning mixed marriages (Num 31; cf. Num 25), the sacrifices of the public cult (Num 28–29), and the impurity of manslaughter in the promised land (Num 35:9–34). Finally, certain motif of holiness and purity span the entire book, such as those concerning death, which is found in Num 5:1–4 (sending out those with death-impurity from the camp), Num 19 (the red cow ritual setting out how to handle death-impurity, in view of the preceding rebellions), and Num 35:9–34 (manslaughter as an extreme case of death-impurity in the holy land). These are at each instance related to the surrounding passages, while at the same time they create a certain coherence for the book as a whole. The purpose of the present paper is to unearth the often forgotten theology of holiness and purity in Numbers and argue its significance in the interpretation of the book.

    Med nyckeln i sin hand: En undersökning om pastorns roll som nyckelperson för Equmeniakyrkans arbete med miljö- och klimatfrågor2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the degree to which pastors within the Uniting church of Sweden (Equmeniakyrkan) feel that they possess authority within the context of their ministries and in what way they find opportunities to influence people to green transition. The method used to study this is a combined study, comprising a survey and a couple of follow-up interviews.

    The results of the study show that the majority of the pastors believe that it is important to work with issues related to green transition, but that the majority at the same time show doubts about being concrete and precise about these matters. The result could indicate an uncertainty regarding one's own authority to guide individuals to concrete lifestyle changes and ethical stances. The pastor can thus be understood as a “key person” in his context; a person entrusted with authority and "keys". The survey shows that the pastors prefer to use their keys to open, but seldom to close or “lock tight”, in the sense of stipulating what a person should or should not do.

    Asymmetry and Mutuality: Feminist Approaches to Receptive Ecumenism2020In: Studia Theologica: Nordic Journal of Theology, ISSN 0039-338X, Vol. 74, no 2, p. 197-216Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Receptive ecumenism is a new current in contemporary ecumenism. By focusing on unilateral learning and by dissociating itself from presuppositions of mutuality, receptive ecumenism inspires rethinking and provokes new thought in the field of ecumenical theology. This article pays special attention to the non-expectation of mutuality in receptive ecumenism and analyses its consequences with regard to asymmetrical relations. The analysis is carried out in consideration of other currents of contemporary ecumenism where mutuality is associated with the struggle for justice and equality. Guided by feminist philosophical and theological insights on negative and positive understandings of asymmetry, the article discusses the nature of receptive ecumenism in view of a wider ecumenical terrain. It explores the underlying understanding of asymmetry in receptive ecumenism. It moreover inquires into the receptive ecumenical approach to mutuality with a view to the roots of this new ecumenical current in spiritual ecumenism and interfaith engagement. Attending to the factors of agency, diversity, and listening, the article identifies challenges to the viability of receptive ecumenism. Simultaneously, it expounds the role of receptive ecumenism in revitalizing ecumenical theological reflection.

    Prospects for Theology in Peacebuilding: A Theological Analysis of the Just Peace Concept in the Textual Process towards an International Ecumenical Peace Declaration, World Council of Churches 2008-20112016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study takes its starting point in the questions of whether and how theology might serve as a faith-basedpeacebuilding resource. Based on an exploration of the textual process towards an international ecumenicaldeclaration on just peace in the World Council of Churches, it suggests that theology can indeed serve as sucha resource and it sketches how theology can make such a contribution. The exploration, which takes place intwo stages, focuses on the theological development of the concept of just peace and is guided by the researchquestion “What are the prospects for theology in peacebuilding?”. The first stage seeks to discern how thediscourse presented in the textual process makes a contribution to the theological construction of the just peaceconcept. The second stage investigates how the theological construction of the just peace concept provides anexample of theology as an essential, faith-based peacebuilding resource. The exploration constitutes aconstructive theological analysis of the just peace concept, carried out in view of the four perspectives oftheological ethics, biblical interpretation, spirituality, and ecumenical vision. It is guided by the pursuit ofidentifying theological resources for religiously motivated peacebuilding endeavours in our time.
