Dr Oh completed his Ph.D in New Testament at King’s College, University of London, in June 2001. His special area of studies is the writing and theology of the Apostle Paul, especially the study of Galatians. Earlier he had received the M Div from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and the M Th from the University of Aberdeen. He is married and serves as an Assistant Pastor at the Carmel Bible-Presbyterian Church. He provides leadership for the third worship service of his church, the Saturday Evening Service.

NT 102 is the sequel to NT 101 and both are foundational to the study of the NT at BGST. NT 102 covers the Epistles and Revelation. This course is a general survey of the message of the NT books, their relationships to each other, introductory issues (author, date, occasion, content, etc.), and factors in the first century (e.g. history and religions) that influenced the life and ministry of the early church.


  • To be familiar with the historical setting, occasion, literary genre, and purpose of the NT books.
  • To examine the basic theological arguments in each of the epistles and Revelation.
  • To apply principles within the NT books to the church’s life today.
