Waltke Resigns from RTS

In an interesting “coincidence,” this week Reformed Theological Seminary is announcing the resignation of Prof. Bruce Waltke. Here’s the announcement:

Dr. Bruce Waltke from the RTS Orlando campus has resigned from his position as Professor of Old Testament and will no longer be making his annual trek from the West Coast to teach his winter and early spring classes in Orlando.

Of course, it would be pure speculation to connect the dots between last week’s abrupt about-face on Waltke’s Biologos video and this resignation announcement. But the correlation is interesting. Interesting enough to make professors in conservative evangelical contexts think twice before suggesting we carefully consider the plausibility of the scientific consensus regarding evolution.

Tremper Longman III was uninvited from his regular teaching at RTS this fall after a video was released in which he questioned the historicity of Adam.
