From the website: "This conference furthers a long tradition of rich theological conferences at Westminster Reformed Presbyterian Church. This year we are very pleased to host Dr. Greg Beale and to bring his ministry to bear upon the greater- Chicago area. His scholarship and voice have been important and trenchant within the church as he has stood for truth and faithfulness to the authoritative Word. We hope you will not miss this opportunity to hear Dr. Beale and to grow deeper in your knowledge of Scripture and love for Christ.

G. K. Beale argues that the Old Testament tabernacle and temples were symbolically designed to point to the end-time reality that God's presence, formerly limited to the Holy of Holies, would be extended throughout the cosmos. Hence, John's vision in Revelation 21 is best understood as picturing the new heavens and earth as the eschatological temple."
