J. T. Beck developed his entire theological thinking as an interpretation of the Scriptures. He read the Bible as a portrayal of the historically effective dynamics of God's actions for salvation, and in its texts he looked for the world's system of life, which he considered from the perspective of eschatological hope ("biblical realism"). Beck influenced entire generations of ministers. His scholarly influence however has remained comparably limited. His thinking did stimulate the biblically-oriented theological concepts of H. Cremer, M. Kähler and A. Schlatter, it had a later influence on K. Barth's first interpretation of the Epistle of Paul to the Romans and is reminiscent of the biblical-hermeneutic orientation of theological work.
