Edinburgh Theological Seminary is delighted to announce the appointment of Rev Ben Castaneda as Course Organiser and Lecturer in Greek and New Testament. He will replace Prof John Angus Macleod who, after 22 years service, recently gave notice that he will retire in the summer of 2022. 

Mr Castaneda grew up in Texas. After graduating with an MDiv from Westminster Seminary California in 2012, he spent a year as a missionary in Uganda, and thereafter, six years in ordained pastoral ministry in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). He will graduate with a PhD in New Testament from the University of St Andrews in 2022, and currently serves as an elder in the St Andrews Free Church congregation. Ben and his wife, Bethel, have five children. 

ETS Principal, Iver Martin, said, “John Angus Macleod will be a hard act to follow, but Ben shows every indication of being a first-class New Testament scholar. More than that, he comes with missional and pastoral experience, both of which form an ideal background to the work he will do in training students for future ministry and mission work.” 

Prof John Angus Macleod will retire in June 2022
