Greg Beale leaving Wheaton? Biblical Studies chair vacancy…

UPDATE: Beale is leaving for Westminster Theological Seminary.  In an interview, he talks about ‘coming home’ theologically when he thinks about his move to WTS.  He also feels this is a good time to go to WTS in light of recent events there (which seems to be in relation to Peter Enns).  There will, no doubt, be discussions about how this move will affect the direction that WTS is going in (as in securing its convervative positions).  I am interested also, though, in the direction that Wheaton will go.  Whomever they hire will probably be an important leader in their graduate school and will be supervising phd students.  We will see…
