Greg Beale at SBTS

Last week, Dr. Greg Beale (Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology) gave the Gheens Lectures at Southern Seminary. His topic was the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament, one for which Dr. Beale has written extensively on. His three lectures were:

Recent Developments in Old Testament in New Testament Studies that Challenges the Organic Integrity of the Testaments

A Classic Proposed Example of the Misuse of the Old Testament in the New Testament: Hosea 11:1 in Matthew 2:15

The Problem of Allusion and the Implications for Interpretation and Biblical Theology

A number of Dr. Beale’s important works on the subject would include his book, The Right Doctrine from the Wrong Texts?: Essays on the Use of the Old Testament in the New, a Commentary on Revelation, an monograph on The Use of Daniel in Jewish Apocalyptic Literature and in the Revelation of St. John, and a co-edited (with D. A. CarsonCommentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament. Later this year we should see the publication of a New Testament Biblical Theology, focusing on how the Old Testament is transformed in the New Testament.

Dr. Beale is one of my favorite New Testament scholars. He is an leading expert in the New Testament authors use of the Old Testament. Likewise, his work on Idolatry is one of the best I have read on the subject. I once had the pleasure to sit in on a Greek Exegesis of Revelation class in which he was the guest teacher.

  1. This is a very helpful post. I heartily recommend Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament, both as a book and, even more so, as a focus of study. Seeing more of Christ is the point of it all.
