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 Why does God say he only revealed his name, Yahweh, to Moses?
@RonMaimon, the downvote is your prerogative. However, "intellectual dishonesty" implies that either I am committing plagiarism or I have written something that I know is false. I have listed my sources above, and I assure you that I do believe what I have written. I am not committing any kind of intellectual dishonesty.

comment Did Noah take two doves, or fourteen?
Traditionally, it is J and P who are supposed to have given the flood account, not J and E. And both criticisms you give of Wenham's article are from the first 2 pages.

Gordon Wenham has an excellent article in Vetus Testamentum 28 on the unity of the Flood Account. It can now be found online: scotthahn.com/download/attachment/3402

@RonMaimon, shem with the connotation of reputation is well supported throughout the Old Testament (I listed several). Are you saying this is not the case? Also, are you saying that the beth essentiae is nowhere found in the Old Testament?

comment What language did Jesus commonly speak?
@JonEricson, one of the best books I've read on the Hebrew as a living language theory is Understanding the Difficult Words of Jesus by Biven and Blizzard. It's small, but goes into a lot of detail.

Thanks for adding more! And now I have a tough decision to make... Who gets the "accept." Course, it's still open so others could take a shot at the question.

comment What is the difference between “righteous” and “just” in the NT?
Hebrew does similar. Most words descend from a verbal root.

comment How can the Pastoral Epistles not be Pauline?
@Mallioch, one of my professors at AGTS did something like that for his doctoral thesis. It was huge.
