Specialization
New Testament & Greek

Holly Beers arrived at Westmont in 2012. She teaches the required Introduction to New Testament course as well as biblical Greek and upper-level New Testament courses that include Jesus in the Gospels and Topics in New Testament. Her specialty areas include Luke-Acts, the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament, philosophical hermeneutics, and second temple Judaism. Her publications include the article "Servant of Yahweh" in the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels (IVP, 2013) and a monograph entitledThe Followers of Jesus as the Servant: Luke’s Model from Isaiah for the Disciples in Luke-Acts (T&T Clark, forthcoming). She is currently researching the “righteousness” language in Luke’s Gospel as well as the use of the Old Testament in 1 Corinthians 11.

Holly studied at North Central University in Minneapolis, MN (B.A.), Bethel Seminary in St. Paul, MN (M.A.T.S.), and London School of Theology in London, England (Ph.D.). She is married to the world’s most supportive husband, Max, and has two sons and a daughter with Old Testament, rather than New Testament, names: Noah, Moses, and Eden.
