“The Faculty of Theology and Religion at the University of Pretoria, during its Spring graduation ceremony last week, conferred an honorary doctorate on Prof John Kloppenborg, Professor of Religion at the University of Toronto, for his contribution to the study of the New Testament.

Prof Kloppenborg is one of the few New Testament scholars in the world who is considered by his peers as an expert in several fields and on topics in the study of the New Testament. His work on the Saying Source, known as Q, has set the standard for the past 35 years.
