Eunyung Lim – Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago
Eunyung Lim is Assistant Professor of New Testament at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. Lim’s research pays close attention to the marginalized voices in the New Testament, such as children, women, and other minorities, and focuses on how their portrayals function in early Christian literature. Her forthcoming book, Entering God’s Kingdom (Not) Like a Little Child, illuminates the diverse ways early Christ followers associated childlikeness with God’s kingdom by situating the Gospel of Matthew, 1 Corinthians, and the Gospel of Thomas within ancient discourses and practices related to children. She holds both a Master of Divinity and Doctor of Theology from Harvard University.
