Rev. Adam Kubiś, born in 1976 in Mielec (Poland), graduated from the Janek Bytnar High School in Kolbuszowa in 1995. He was ordained to priesthood on May 24, 2001. In June 2001 he 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 the thesis on the pneumathology of John's Gospel (Jn 15:26-27) under the direction of Rev. Dr. Hab. Michał Bednarz. Subsequently, he spent one school year in pastoral work in Brzostek.
In July 2002 he was assigned to Rome to study biblical sciences at the Pontifical Biblical Institute (PBI). Then from October 2003 through February 2004 he 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. He then returned to Rome and completed the entire curriculum at the PBI. After presenting his thesis dedicated to the concept of liberation in the Fourth Gospel (Jn 8:31-36), written under the direction of Prof. Johannes Beutler SJ, he received a licentiate degree in biblical sciences (S.S.L.) on 8 June 2006. During the final year of his studies in Italy he also worked as an assistant parish priest in St. Francis Parish in Carpi, in the province of Modena.
Between 2006 and 2010, he continued his biblical studies at the Dominican École Biblique et Archéologique Française de Jérusalem (EBAF) where he defended his 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 his S.S.D. he moved to Austria to work in the diocese of Graz-Seckau for two years. Since October 1, 2012, he is serving as a lecturer at the Institute of Biblical Studies at the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin and the Theological Seminary in Rzeszów.
