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 Are there intra-textual supports for a politicized reading of Revelation?
"By connecting passages to historical events," do you mean that he believes it all happened in the first century or that he believes Revelation has been being fulfilled over the course of history since?

comment Did Jesus wear pants?
Question reminds me of a sermon clip a friend sent me. The preacher spent several minutes on the topic "Real men pee standing up." I was in shock (the bad kind). My friend had been equally horrified.

comment Why did the witnesses lay their coats at Paul's feet?
The average Roman, I might agree, but I believe part of Luke's purpose is a legal defense for Paul's upcoming trial. Luke leaves off with Paul about to make his defense. Since Luke shows several times how Christians are willing to pay the ultimate price for their faith, it seems odd that he would write it after Paul died and not show that. If Luke-Acts was first written with the purpose of explaining to Theophilus (who seems to be an official of some kind) what Christians mean and do, we could expect Theophilus to know how Jews act. After all, Theophilus means "lover of God."

There is a running tension in Acts between Greek and Hebrew Jews. I'll edit to include more details.

Wish I could upvote this twice. I found some really interesting things going on as I researched the passage!
