New Testament Scholar Says Coronavirus Vaccine Is ‘Absolutely Not’ the Mark of the Beast

One of America’s leading evangelical scholars is rejecting speculation that the COVID-19 vaccine could be the “mark of the beast,” as mentioned in Revelation.

Thomas Schreiner, a long-time New Testament professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and the author or editor of 10 books, said Sunday in a series of tweets that he’s often asked about the issue and is “grieved” that some are embracing it as true.

“I am working on a major commentary on Revelation in the Baker series,” Schreiner tweeted. “When I am out speaking and now via email I am being asked more and more whether the vaccine is the mark of the beast. My answer: absolutely not! There is no exegetical or theological basis for such a view.”
