I'm a hobbyist programmer, part-time sysadmin, and full-time data center management, automation, and cloud computing architect and delivery engineer.

I have experience with myriad editors, shells, and OSes. While I have my [strong] preferences, am pretty much beyond the religious wars of "what's best" when it comes to platform, editor, or toolset: if it works for the problem at hand, and you know it, it's [probably] worthwhile :)

comment Does Jesus's change in attitude about drinking wine on the cross relate to his statement ‘It is finished’?
@MonicaCellio - don't forget, too, that Jesus has already been brutally scourged prior to the crucifixion - that would have laid bare parts of His internal anatomy for display

comment Why is Rahab and not the spies included in the “Hall of Faith”?
don't forget she is in the line of David, and therefore Christ, too

Moses didn't prohibit being a prostitute - God did

comment Did God create the constellations?
or, perhaps, we're looking at the Masoretic here :)

comment Are the twenty-four elders of Revelation 4-5 angels or humans?
also consider that the visions are not necessarily linear in their portrayal of events

comment Was Greek Mark's second language?
I find it somewhat amusing that the gospels are thought to have been written no earlier than ~60AD, but a great deal of evidence shows that Paul's letters were [mostly] completed by then.

comment Are the rings for carrying the incense altar pure gold?
@swasheck - a gold abr at the bottom of the stack in Ft Knox isn't appreciably different in shape from one at the top - and each one is 30lbs, give or take

comment Why did Stephen give such a long speech?
one minor point - Moses didn't die before the Promised Land because the people opposed him, he died for striking the rock when God told him to talk to it

comment Is Leviticus 12 saying that giving birth to a child is a sin?
do not forget the issue of the blood being the reason for ceremonial uncleanness, which also required a sin offering to be made: there is blood issued when giving birth, too

comment Can Enoch's hermeneutical approach be determined?
these types of questions seem to presuppose that there was no more revelation available to the early saints than is recorded in Genesis. If the words of John are correct in describing Jesus' ministry that if everything were to be written even the world could not contain the books, then why would we presume the available revelation of God in the early days of the earth was limited to only that which was recorded for our good?

comment How many wives does Deuteronomy allow a king to have?
of course, David's many wives led to other problems - Absalom's uprising, the rape of his daughter, etc

comment Does Exodus 22:28 call for child sacrifice?
child sacrifice is explicitly forbidden to the Hebrews - however, using the same word in differing contexts with different thrusts is quite common

comment Does a leper have yellow hair or black hair?
how is this "obviously just a typo.."? Without backing-up this statement, the answer is, at best, a comment.

comment Did Noah take two doves, or fourteen?
