Professor Rev. Kyoung-Jin Kim


Professor Rev. Kyoung-Jin Kim is currently the Director of Academic Affairs in Korean Department. He was once a Professor of New Testament and Dean of Graduate School of Christian Studies at BaekSeok University, Seoul, Korea, for more than 25 years. His primary area of expertise is the Synoptic Gospels, particularly the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles in the New Testament Studies. His monograph Stewardship and Almsgiving in Luke’s Theology (Sheffield Academic Press, England, 1988) which is a slightly revised version of his PhD dissertation at the University of Glasgow, UK, shows clearly what his main concern is in the New Testament Studies. He has been teaching theology for more than 25 years at BaekSeok University and the followings are his areas of teaching; Synoptic Gospels, New Testament Ethics, Pauline Epistles and his Theology as well as New Testament Greek.

Current Research

In the Book of the Acts of the Apostles, Hebrew Jews among whom 12 apostles were prominent were ordered by Jesus Christ to preach the gospel unto the end of the earth(Acts 1.8), but in fact the mission was carried out by Greek Jews among whom Paul and Barnaba were prominent(Acts 13.1-4).

Eventually, Hebrew Jews were replaced by Greek Jews, so this thesis is going to delve into the question.

Why were Hebrew Jews replaced by Greek Jews in Early Christian Movement?
