PhD Candidate Timothy Henderson Receives SBL Regional Scholar Award

The Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) has notified Graduate Student Timothy Henderson that he has been chosen as one of two recipients of the 2010 SBL Regional Scholar Award. The selection committee granted this award on the basis of his nomination by the Upper Midwest Region of SBL for a paper he presented at the 2009 regional meeting. That paper, entitled "Jesus the Murder Victim: Appropriating Scripture in the Gospel of Peter's Narrative of Deicide," was a reworked portion of the dissertation he is currently writing. Award recipients receive a monetary gift and will be recognized on SBL's website next year and at the 2010 annual meeting.

In notifying the department, Henderson says that this award testifies to the strength of Marquette's theology department, which has played a significant role in preparing him to be an active and contributing member of the biblical studies guild. He especially acknowledges the feedback he received from Dr. Hills on this portion of his dissertation, which assisted him in producing a high-quality work that is worthy of this recognition.
