New Testament Studies is an international peer-reviewed periodical whose contributors include the leading New Testament scholars writing in the world today. The journal publishes articles and short studies in English, German, and French on a wide range of issues pertaining to the origins, history, context and theology of the New Testament and early Christianity.
All contributions represent research at the cutting edge of the discipline. The journal welcomes submissions that reflect the discipline’s current methodological diversity.
While New Testament Studies is published under the auspices of SNTS (Studiorum Novi Testamenti Societas), membership or otherwise of the Society is not a factor in the review of submitted articles. Peer review is carried out by the Editor in conjunction with an Editorial Board of around 20 members, each of whom serves a three-year term. We aim to publish original and innovative work that opens up new lines of enquiry and engages with an appropriate range of secondary literature in more than one language.
The Editor of New Testament Studies normally serves a five year term of office. As from 1st January 2019, the present Editor is Dr Simon Gathercole, Cambridge University.
