This is a helpful lecture from Greg Beale of Westminster Theological Seminary.

This is taken from lesson 1 of the Preaching and Biblical Theology curriculum as part of the Simeon Course on Biblical Exposition. Learn more here.

For those who want to take a great step in biblical theology, Jim Hamilton’s What Is Biblical Theology? A Guide to the Bible’s Story, Symbolism, and Patterns is now the place to start.

    This brought back memories – both of Dave Helm who I love and Greg Beale who, well, nearly killed me in Seminary. My head still hurts.

    Apart from that, highly, highly recommend the Simeon Trust. And if/when Canon David Short is involved, by ALL MEANS, go.
