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 What is the origin of the household tables?
-1. So much here doesn't address the question. I appreciate you sharing your hermeneutic, though.

comment What did the 70 elders see, if man can't see God and live?
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics! Thanks for your answer. What we strive for here is for questions arising from the text and answers dealing with that text and related texts. This reads more like an answer from personal experience while we are looking for scholarly work. Can you revise? Also, the questioner has requested that the answers be from a Tanakh (Hebrew canon only) perspective.

comment Why is this same word translated both “they”, “he” and “him” in Luke 10:38?
Like this: net.bible.org/#!bible/Luke+10:38. That'll get you to the verse in the text side and then just scroll for the notes.

comment How can we ensure a given “chiasm” was intentional by the author, and is not merely fanciful eisegesis?
If you just have the idea at the start and end with differing amounts in the middle, that sounds more like an inclusio than a chiasm.

See this for grammar reasons as to why the lack of article doesn't mean Jesus is just "a god".

comment Why “Inn” for “Kataluma” in Luke 2:7
To us the handful of miles from Jerusalem to Bethlehem is trivial. When the transport choices are foot and animal, it's a lot longer time. But more importantly, can you support your version from the text? Luke specifically says there was no room for them in the katalouma so they laid him in a manger/stall?
