BRIEFLY ABOUT ME

My name is Daniel Mikkelsen. I am the founder of this company and my vision with it is to teach people to read the New Testament in the original Greek.

I personally got interested in Greek about 9 years ago when I was still working as a motor mechanic just a couple of years after I began to read the bible more seriously. Although the interest was there, it actually took me a while before I got to learn Greek. I, in fact, tried to teach myself for a period but with no success. It was really first after I started my bachelor in theology I got a hang of it, which is about 7 years ago. So, when I think back on it now I probably would have benefited a lot if I had had a personal tutor to guide and motivate my learning. This is what I want to be for you; the tutor that I lacked in the beginning of my Greek journey.

Nevertheless, I still succeeded to learn Greek on a high level and I have over 6 years’ worth of quality training in koine Greek from good universities which include the University of Cambridge and the University of Copenhagen. I hold an MPhil from Cambridge that specialises in New Testament Greek and exegesis and Master's in Theology from the University of Copenhagen that has a broader focus on all disciplines of theology. I am currently doing my PhD in New Testament at the University of Edinburgh in which I am examining Paul’s understanding of the material of the resurrection body in relation to his doctrine of salvation.

Furthermore, I have also published an peer-reviewed article within the New Testament subject area – specifically regarding 1 Corinthians 15.35-58. Besides this, I serve as translator on the New Testament board of translations committee of “Den Frie Bible” (The Free Bible) a copyright-free translation of the bible into Danish in which I have almost completed the translation of 1 John and are about to review the translation of 1 and 2 Corinthians.
