Preaching and Teaching the New Testament Use Of The Old Testament
(For Pastors, Elders, and Other Interested Christians)
Dr. Greg Beale
Rev. Dr. Gregory K. Beale (PhD, Cambridge) is a professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Dallas. Dr. Beale’s academic interests include the New Testament’s use of the Old Testament, the book of Revelation, the biblical-theological theme of temple as the dwelling place of God, and the topic of inerrancy, among others.
Dr. Benjamin Gladd
Dr. Benjamin L. Gladd (PhD, Wheaton College) is professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary. He has written several books on biblical theology and the New Testament Use of the OT, edits the Essential Studies in Biblical Theology series, and serves on the editorial board of Themelios.
The primary purpose of this conference is to provide continuing education to pastors and to refresh them in some of the biblical-theological approaches, which they learned in seminary. All of this is with a view to enhancing the expository preaching of pastors and the teaching of elders. This is not a conference where pastors and elders sit on the sidelines, listening to one plenary address or sermon after another. There will be break-out sessions for workshops and question and answer sessions. While this conference is primarily targeting pastors/teachers, we would love to have laypeople join us—men, women, college and seminary students.

Discuss and apply the content of the preceding two plenary sessions, including question and answer period.
A methodological approach to studying an OT reference used in the NT.
