Well, the proposal was accepted in January – and now on to the task of writing a dissertation… so far my initial research is underway.
I am enjoying entering into the world of the NT and Mark’s Gospel and scholarship in these two areas.
A key for effective research and writing is to have a healthy long view of the task at hand and maintaining the daily discipline needed to stay on track. On one hand it is easy to be overwhelmed by the size of the project and on the other to be let days slip past due to the tyranny of the urgent. It is an interesting tension.
