In June 2001 I was granted the degree of Master of Sacred Theology (S.T.M.) in Biblical Theology at the Pontifical Academy of Theology in Kraków, having written my thesis on the pneumathology of John's Gospel (Jn 15:26-27) under the direction of Rev. Dr. Hab. Michał Bednarz.


In July 2002 I was assigned to Rome to study biblical sciences at the Pontifical Biblical Institute (PBI). Then from October 2003 through February 2004 I resided with the Jesuit community in Jerusalem and studied Biblical Hebrew and Biblical Archaeology within the compass of the program “The Bible and Its World” at the Rothberg International School of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I then returned to Rome and completed the entire curriculum at the PBI. After presenting my thesis dedicated to the concept of liberation in the Fourth Gospel (Jn 8:31-36), written under the direction of Prof. Johannes Beutler SJ, I received a licentiate degree in biblical sciences (S.S.L.) on 8 June 2006. 


During the final year of my studies in Italy I also worked as an assistant parish priest in St. Francis Parish in Carpi, in the province of Modena.


Between 2006 and 2010, I continued my biblical studies at the Dominican École Biblique et Archéologique Française de Jérusalem (EBAF) where I defended my doctoral thesis in biblical sciences (S.S.D.) with the distinction summa cum laude (8 January 2011). The supervisor of the thesis was Prof. Luc Devillers OP. The dissertation was subsequently published in France under the title: The Book of Zechariah in the Gospel of John (Études bibliques: Nouvelle série 64; Pendé: J. Gabalda et Cie 2012, pp. 590).


After completing my S.S.D. I moved to Austria to work in the diocese of Graz-Seckau for two years.


Since October 1, 2012, I am serving as an assistant professor at the Institute of Biblical Studies at the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin.
