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 Different translation of “The Great Tribulation?”
I just checked the TR of this verse (go to page 4 of the linked file). It has the definite articles in the questioned places.

comment Different translation of “The Great Tribulation?”
I wonder if this is one of the passages where the KJV followed the Vulgate. There are a few. Still does not excuse it but may explain it.

comment Jesus and the cross
"The stake could have been fixed to an existing column to form a cross or a T, we simply don't know. Best to stick to the literal translation." There is plenty of evidence from archeology and literature of the time to show that stauros was used to refer to the traditional cross.

comment Is NWT's translation of John 8:58 reasonable?
But they can't get there from John 8:58. The Greek is "I am" not "I have been." And the context beyond the verse shows that the Jewish leaders understood it as blasphemy, a claim where Jesus claimed himself to be God.

The word is plural. ἥλων is a plural case of ἥλος.
