About the Author

Rev. Dr Pieter Johannes Lalleman (1960) is a New Testament scholar who has been living and working in London since 2000, where he teaches at the famous Spurgeon's College. After his theological studies in Utrecht, he was a teacher in secondary education for seven years, while also teaching the New Testament on a part-time basis in several places. Prior to his coming to England, he was the part-time pastor of a Baptist church and a research assistant at the University of Groningen, which in 1998 resulted in a thesis on the Apocryphal Acts of John.
Pieter's areas of interest include backgrounds to the Bible, the use of the Old Testament in the New, apocryphal books and biblical archaeology. He loves teaching Introduction to the Bible, John, Acts and Revelation, as well as teaching and preaching in local churches.
