Though Dr Jongkind's first career is in horticulture, he moved to biblical studies in the late '90s and studied at Tyndale Theological Seminary in the Netherlands for an MA (Old Testament), and at Cambridge for the MPhil (2000) and PhD (2005). He was involved in the curatorial preparation for the Codex Sinaiticus digitisation project at the British Library. In 2017 Cambridge University Press and Crossway jointly published The Greek New Testament, Produced at Tyndale House, Cambridge, which Dr Jongkind edited over the previous decade.


Dr Jongkind's main interest is in the textual transmission of the Greek Scriptures, its manuscripts, and also linguistic issues of grammar, syntax, and lexicography.
