Special Projects

Editor of TombOfJesus.com

I joined the Tomb of Jesus website team and lead work to expand the range of content offered at the website. In addition to this the length of existing articles and comment was reduced to make the website more user friendly.

Keeping in contact with the key scholars and researchers actively involved in the 'Jesus in India' area is an essential part of the job. This has allowed the Tomb of Jesus Website to become the online centre for Jesus in India studies.
