Dr. Greg Beale

Rev. Dr. Gregory K. Beale (PhD, Cambridge) holds the J. Gresham Machen Chair of New Testament and is a professor of New Testament and biblical theology at Westminster Theological Seminary.  Dr. Beale’s academic interests include the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament, the book of Revelation, the biblical-theological theme of the temple as the dwelling place of God, and the topic of inerrancy, among others.

For those who are new to Dr. Beale’s writing and teaching on these interests, he recommends several resources as places to start. On the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament, he would suggest starting with his course A New Testament Biblical Theology, available free online from Westminster, or reading A New Testament Biblical Theology: The Unfolding of the Old Testament in the New. On Revelation, he would recommend his commentary Book of Revelation (New International Greek Text Commentary) or the newly-released Revelation: A Shorter Commentary. On the biblical-theological use of the temple, consider “Eden, the Temple, and the Church’s Mission in the New Creation,” or his book on the topic. On inerrancy, he would suggest starting with The Right Doctrine from the Wrong Text?, or his article “Can the Bible be Completely Inspired by God and Yet Still Contain Errors?”.
