John Murray (theologian)

John Murray (October 14, 1898 – May 8, 1975) was a Scottish-born Reformed theologian who taught at Princeton Seminary and then left to help found Westminster Theological Seminary, where he taught for many years.


Murray was born in the croft of Badbea, near Bonar Bridge, in Sutherland county, Scotland. Following service in the British Army in the First World War (during which he lost an eye) he studied at the University of Glasgow. Following his acceptance as a theological student of the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland he pursued further studies at Princeton Seminary under J. Gresham Machen and Geerhardus Vos. He taught at Princeton for a year and then lectured in systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary to generations of students from 1930 to 1966, and was an early trustee of the Banner of Truth Trust. Besides the material in the four-volume "Collected Writings", his primary published works are a commentary on the Epistle to the Romans (previously included in the "New International Commentary on the New Testament" series but now superseded by Douglas J. Moo's commentary), "Redemption Accomplished and Applied", "Principles of Conduct", "The Imputation of Adam's Sin", "Baptism", and "Divorce".
