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 Does “Hebrew” refer to the language or the language family?
@e.s.kohen, there's lots of evidence for Mishnaic Hebrew as a spoken language. The evidence in that answer can be found in the sources footnoted.

comment What arguments exist that would refute the theory concerning Aramaic primacy of the New Testament?
@e.s.kohen, we do things differently now. It's not that these had some Hebrew and then something else which was the common language. These had only Hebrew.

comment What are the “generations” in Genesis 2:4?
Fun fact: the LXX title "Genesis" comes from the word the LXX uses for toledoth.
