A Joint Statement from Reformed Theological Seminary and Westminster Theological Seminary

After over a decade of faithful service at Westminster Theological Seminary (WTS) as the J. Gresham Machen Chair and Research Professor of New Testament and Biblical Interpretation, Dr. Gregory K. Beale has been appointed as Professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS) in Dallas.

The RTS Board of Trustees and Chancellor Ligon Duncan welcome Dr. Beale to this new post, starting on June 1, 2021. In this new role, Dr. Beale will teach various New Testament courses and be part of the young and growing RTS Dallas campus. This is a homecoming for Dr. Beale who is a native Texan.

The WTS Board of Trustees and President Peter Lillback express deep gratitude to Dr. Beale for his influential scholarship, writing, and teaching, along with his life-shaping ministry in students’ lives. We wish him fruitfulness in this new ministry at RTS. Moreover, in view of our deep admiration and mutual affection, we warmly welcome and anticipate Dr. Beale’s periodic return to the Westminster campus in the years ahead for select courses and lectures.

With this transition in view, RTS and WTS will seek to deepen our institutional partnership, as we pursue fresh educational and ministerial collaboration.
