- Publication1 Corinthians 8.4-6: An Inter-cultural Reading from the Political Context of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(David Pub, 2017) Kwon, Oh-Young; Whitley CollegeThis article explores an inter-cultural reading of 1 Corinthians 8.4-6 from the political and ideological contexts of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (or North Korea; DPRK afterwards) today. The Pauline passage (1 Cor 8.4-6) indicates Roman imperialism and the Imperial cult(s) that had a heavy impact upon the life of people (including Christ-believers) in Roman Corinth of the first century CE. In Roman Imperial cult(s), the Roman emperors were worshipped as divine, and people in the Roman Empire were compelled (at least by social pressure) to honor them as gods. This notion is, to some extent, reflected in the Pauline language—“there may be so-called gods…on earth…there are many gods and many lords” (1 Cor 8.5). The Roman emperors would be seen as amongst these many gods and these many lords in the Pauline description. The DPRK’s culture and society is primarily shaped on the foundation of Juche ideology. The Juche literarily means “self-reliance” and emphasizes the DPRK’s independence from other countries in terms of its political, ideological, and economic systems. Furthermore, in this Juche ideology Kim Il Sung the founder of the DPRK’s communism is claimed as a divine figure, and the people of the DPRK are compelled to venerate and worship him. The discovery of such social, cultural, and religious similarities in the two polarizing contexts encourages me to attempt inter-cultural dialogues between the Christ-believers in first century Corinth and the people of the DPRK today, who appear to see the Juche ideology as the religion officially constituted and recognized in their country today. This attempt makes a contribution to recent Asian Biblical scholarship that would acknowledge and encourage Asian Christians and scholars to read Christian Scriptures from Asian cultural, social, religious, and political contexts.

- Publication“21 Martyrs of Libya”: Presenting Holiness in the Contemporary Coptic Church(Brepols Publishers, 2021) Tumara, Nebojsa; St Athanasius CollegeIn the Coptic tradition, recognition of someone’s holiness is a rather spontaneous process and the Holy Synod of the Church rarely announces new saints. Nevertheless, a new trend has become evident. In 2013 the Church officially canonized Patriarch Cyril VI of Alexandria (1902-1971) and Archdeacon Habib Gerges (1876-1951), and in February 2015, the Coptic Patriarch of Alexandria, Tawadros II, canonized twenty-one Coptic Christians, a week after the media of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) uploaded a video onto social media showing their beheading. The video on social media depicting their vivid and horrid staged execution inspired the iconographic presentations of the event. Following the newly established, diverse, and ever-growing iconographical and hagiographical tradition around the newly recognized martyrs of the Church, this paper will examine how holiness is visually constructed in the Coptic Church, in light of the legacy of late professor Isaac Fanous (1919-2007), who established the canons of the Neo-Coptic School of Iconography.

- Publication6- “La lettre de Denys l’Aréopagite à Timothée comme texte liturgique, ”(Pontificia Universidad Cataolica del Perao, Fondo Editorial, 2018) Youssef, Youhanna; St Athanasius CollegeRésumé : Parfois il est difficile de suivre l’évolution de la liturgie copte, car il y en a plu sieurs traditions locales. Nous avons choisi un texte très peu connu de nos jours. Il s’agit d’une lettre de Denys l’Aéropagite, selon un manuscrit de la collection de l’église de Samannûd, qui se lit lors de la fête des Apôtres le 5 Abîb, 29 juin julien. Nous commençons par une introduc tion sur Denys l’Aréopagite, puis nous noterons que les manuscrits qui contiennent ce texte sont catalogués comme des manuscrits bibliques ou théologiques et rarement dans la caté gorie « liturgiques ». Nous expliquerons ensuite quand et où ce texte est entré dans la liturgie copte, à savoir via le rite melkite de Syrie puis d’Égypte, notamment au Caire où il passera à l’église voisine de Harat Zuwaila, pour être enfin diffusé dans les autres régions de l’Égypte, ce qui est reflété par le manuscrit de Samannnûd

- PublicationA Bastard in the Royal Family: Wither Mission?(Theological Students’ Fellowship, 2010) Flett, John; Pilgrim Theological College"Flett highlights the incongruity between statements of the missionary nature of the church and the subordinate position assigned the subject by the theological guild. He locates the problem in the mistaken assumption that mission is a temporary activity, a means and not an end. The theological warrant for mission is not an external command of God confined to this age, but rather, Flett argues, God’s own life of self-witness." - Cambria Janae Kaltwasser
