After relocating to Stellenbosch, where he earned his MPhil cum laude, he came to Johannesburg to co-lead a church plant. After serving for several years in a part-time capacity with SATS, while completing his PhD (New Testament), he joined us full-time in 2019 as the Coordinator of Faculty Research. Bat’s interests are in Pauline literature, Early Christianity, and the social world of the New Testament. He is also interested in public theology, especially how it intersects with Southern Africa. Bat is married to Vanesha. They live in the north of France.
