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.

@GrzegorzAdamKowalski, I have edited to answer your question. I was in such a rush this morning, that I didn't realize I had left that part out. Whoops!

comment How does a Bible translator know if it is a poem?
@fdb, Beyond the wikipedia page, there is a plethora of evidence that Mishnaic Hebrew was alive and well in the land among the common people of the first century.

comment On what basis do some modern Bible manuscripts omit Matt. 17:21?
@KodeKreachor, if you are wondering why the verse number is skipped, that is because the numbers are for reference only (not part of the original) but they are consistent across versions that use them. This allows readers to go directly to the verse as their pastor reads. If they changed the numbers there would be much confusion.
