Centre for Gospels and Acts Research

The Sydney College of Divinity Centre for Gospels and Acts Research (CGAR) promotes research into the four Gospels and, due to the connections with Luke, the Book of Acts.  It seeks to foster better understanding of these foundational documents of historical Christianity,  and encourages research from a variety of methodological perspectives, including historical, archaeological, theological, exegetical, literary, sociological, feminist, and text-critical approaches. A key part of the Centre’s work is the publication of its journal, JGAR, the Journal of Gospels and Act Research, by SCD Press.
