This week’s chapel speaker was our own Dr. Jonathan Greer. He explored “waiting with promise” through the lens of the Old Testament.

As he led our students through an experience of the story of Moses and the people of Israel during the time of the Exodus, we were able to understand afresh that they all waited under the promise God had given to them. They waited for the promises to be fulfilled, but in the midst of their waiting God called them to remember one truth: “He is YHWH.”


Dr. Greer serves at GRTS as associate professor of Old Testament and director of the Hesse Memorial Archaeological Lab at GRTS. Dr. Greer is also the associate director of excavations and is the residing zooarchaeologist at Tel Dan. He and his wife Jennifer have three children.
