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.

This is a great question. I had never noticed the similarities. And @JonEricson, I'll get Jude. No worries.

comment How can I identify puns in the Hebrew Bible?
Puns are the hardest thing to translate. Any type of humor risks being lost in translation, but puns are almost guaranteed.
