Gregory K. Beale Resources

Gregory K. Beale is the Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. He has been on the faculty since 2010. Previously he has served as professor of New Testament at Grove City College, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Wheaton College Graduate School. You can view a list of his publications provided by WTS, as well as a video interview about his decision to join WTS. You can also check out the Theopedia entry for him.

Beale’s work in the area of biblical theology has been and continues to be extremely important, especially in relation to the New Testament use of the Old Testament. I was first introduced to Beale through his book Right Doctrine from the Wrong Text? Essays on the Use of the Old Testament in the New. Eventually I listened to his New Testament Theology lectures from Gordon-Conwell’s SemLink program [this class forms the basis for his recent book New Testament Biblical Theology]. It was an eye-opening experience in terms of the eschatology of the New Testament. The best introductory article for Beale’s theological structure is “The Eschatological Conception of New Testament Theology,” in Eschatology in Bible & Theology: Evangelical Essays at the Dawn of a New Millennium [an abbreviated and revised version has been re-published in Biblical Theology: Retrospect and Prospect, edited by Scott J. Hafemann].

  1. Dr. Beale is an excellent speaker and teacher. I gain so much when I listen to anything in his audio library.
    His work on the book of Revelation is the ultimate. No one has come out with a more comprehensive yet understandable exegesis of this book.

  2. thank you so much. I am presently studying the book of revelation. it is changing my previous views that i held.

  4. I’ve just begun reading “1-2 Thessalonians.” I have found The Theological Context of the Thessalonian Epistles helpful. It is bringing me back to my Reformed roots.
    Would you comment on the current universal persecution? (pg 21) There are presently many well respected Christian leaders predicting that Christ’s Coming is imminent. I recognize our situation is certainly bad, but is it bad enough to make such predictions? I also recognize these leaders have different eschatological hermeneutics, and that herein may lie the problem.
