I am a web programmer by day (PHP) and work on sermons and teaching material in the evenings.

I attended Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri, for a Master of Arts in Theological Studies and a Master of Divinity. I am an associate pastor at a small church in Iowa. While in seminary, my emphasis was on Old Testament studies, but Dr. Wave Nunnally introduced me to the rabbinics. Those have become a special interest as well.

I also enjoy apologetics and was a very active member of the apologetics.org forum before it went defunct.

comment Earliest attestation to Luke's gospel
This is a good question, but can you define indisputable? I've seen things disputed that shouldn't be. I knew one atheist a few years ago who would dispute that quote above unless Justin specifically stated that it was from Luke. Not a good method as that simply wasn't required back then. I have an answer on early dating Luke's gospel here.

@JimThio, I didn't say adultery is sex outside of marriage; I said, "have intercourse with someone you are not married to." I do need to clear that up a little as adultery requires one of the parties be married. It is still true that you cannot commit adultery with your spouse. Therefore, Jesus cannot be using the word in the sense of spouse. That's my point entirely. While the both use the same word for wife and woman, you can't use all meanings in every occurrence as your OP questions. Context determines how a word's meanings are used.
