He studied theology at the University of Utrecht, where he passed the candidate exam in 1982 and also completed the teacher training in the Theological Faculty in Utrecht that same year. Beginning in  1982, he studied at the Theological University in Apeldoorn, where he again obtained a candidate exam in 1985 and passed the doctoral exam in 1990, for which he received the judicium cum laude. His main discipline was the Old Testament; dogmatics, Judaïca and Akkadian were his minor subjects.

On 8 June 2011, he obtained his doctorate at the Theological University of Apeldoorn with a dissertation entitled Israel in Romans 10. Intertextual and theological analysis of the Old Testament quotations in Romans 9:30-10:21.
