The Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society is published four times a year (March, June, September, December) by the Evangelical Theological Society.
Founded in 1949, the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) is a group of scholars, teachers, pastors, students, and others dedicated to the oral exchange and written expression of theological thought and research. The ETS is devoted to the inerrancy and inspiration of the Scriptures and the gospel of Jesus Christ—thus, the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society (JETS), is an academic periodical featuring peer reviewed articles, as well as extended book reviews, in biblical and theological disciplines—honoring these beliefs.
The Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society commenced publication in 1958 as the Bulletin of the Evangelical Theological Society. The first issue was just 20 pages in length and contained only one article. But that article by Ned B. Stonehouse of Westminster Theological Seminary, was titled "The Infallibility of Scripture and Evangelical Progress." It was Stonehouse's presidential address to the society. Only 47 persons were in attendance at the Annual Meeting when Stonehouse gave his address.
From that small beginning, under the editorship of Steven Barabas of Wheaton College, the journal has grown remarkably in size, and the contributions are recognized worldwide for their penetrating scholarship and insightful handling of the Scriptures. BETS became JETS in 1969 with volume 12. When JETS celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1982 under the editorship of Ronald Youngblood, each issue was 128 pages in length. During 2007, the readers of JETS receive the four handsome gold colored issues of the 50th anniversary volume, each of which contains 224 pages of astute refereed articles and scholarly reviews. Dr. Andreas Köstenberger now serves as the editor.
