Biblical Theology and Biblical Studies
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 the plenary inspiration of scripture, among others.
For those who are new to Dr. Beale’s writing and teaching, he recommends several resources as places to start. See below for further details:
"Beale's commentary on Colossians and Philemon is everything we have come to expect from a veteran New Testament scholar . . . Beale's exegesis is detailed and rich in insight and theologically profound . . . his emphasis on the fulfillment of the temple in Colossians is illuminating . . . For pastors, students, and professors, Beale's work on these two letters will prove invaluable."
