About ξἐνος

Haere Mai (welcome)

This blog is mainly the work of Jonathan Robinson, a resident alien in New Zealand. Its title ξἐνος (xenos) is an ancient Greek word used in the Bible to describe a resident alien. 'Resident alien' also functions as a good metaphor for being a follower of Jesus in the world.

This blog is a work in progress, written by a work in progress. Everything herein is provisional and offered in humility. Please leave a comment, I value your thoughts.

I'm currently a PhD student at Otago University, NZ, on hiatus from being an NZ Baptist pastor, and was previous on faculty at Carey Baptist College. The views expressed in this blog are my own and do not (necessarily) reflect or represent any organisation I am or have been a part of.

Thanks for reading,
