David Willoughby Gooding (born 1925) is Professor Emeritus of Old Testament Greek at Queen's University Belfast, and is a member of the Royal Irish Academy.[1]

He is a highly regarded Bible teacher and his international teaching ministry is marked by fresh and careful expositions of both testaments. He has published scholarly studies on the Septuagint and Old Testament narratives, as well as expositions of Luke, John 13–17, Acts, Hebrews and the New Testament's use of the Old Testament. During the 1980s and 1990s he had a particular interest in the countries of the former Soviet Union and was involved in writing articles defending and promoting Christianity for use in those countries. He has also had a personal impact on a number of evangelical Christian leaders, notably John Lennox.
