Dr. Byrd is the senior member of the School of Religion faculty, coming to Belmont in January of 1973.  He teaches Koine Greek, New Testament, and Preaching. Since January, 2000, he has held the H. Franklin Paschall Chair of Biblical Studies and Preaching.  Like all good Greek professors, he could not resist the temptation to create his own textbook. During fall semester 2000, his first year Greek class began using his text A Beginner's Grammar of New Testament Greek. He and his wife, Joyce, are long-time members of Crievewood Baptist Church where she is the organist. They have four grown children - Vicki, Becki, Don, and Ken and grandchildren too numerous to count. He actually enjoys yard work and likes to read and travel. He is currently renewing his interest and incompetence in golf.
