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 Before the Tower of Babel did all speak Hebrew as the original human language?
Comments aren't meant to stay forever and may be deleted after a time. It's best if you can edit the references and information into the answer. Here's more references to Hebrew being the [language of Heaven] for you (hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/questions/8984/…): The rabbis spoke of Hebrew as the language of Heaven (Sifre to Deuteronomy 333; BT Shabbat 115a; Bava Batra 82a; Hagigah 16a, etc.; Bereshit Rabba 18:4; Kohelet Rabba 7:8, etc.).
