Last year, Dr. G. K. Beale was the keynote speaker for the Southern California Reformed Baptist Pastors’ Conference. Over the years, Dr. Beale has done groundbreaking research in New Testament studies in the discipline known as biblical theology. His main emphasis has been the use of the Old Testament in the New. It’s a fascinating field, and it helps to have a trusted scholar like Dr. Beale lead the way for younger pastor-scholars. Dr. Beale is a professor of New Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia.
