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 Was Jesus unaware of Joel 2:32?
The change from YHWH to Lord goes back to a Hebrew tradition of avoiding saying the name of God lest they do it lightly. It wasn't removed from Scripture. Picking up any copy of the Hebrew Bible will show you that it is there in the text. However, it was glossed with LORD in deference to the long-running Jewish tradition.
