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 Which of Paul's letters were written to strangers?
Can you show the verses from Thessalonians and Corinthians where Paul has visited them? Likewise with Colossians as to why you conclude he had not? Looking for patterns/similar verses in Scripture would be on-topic, but without those, this might be read as a question looking for a text.

A reference for the claim is needed. Maybe draw an analogy with the kings (or judges or anything where time is kept). Can you find one with a statement where we would recon the rule to be one more year than what the Bible lists?
