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 “A god” or “God” in John 1:1?
@hannes, God is not predicative in ho theos agape estin. ho theos is the subject. agape is the part to move after the verb when we translate. And I am arguing against uncap in John 1:1.

comment “A god” or “God” in John 1:1?
@hannes, right. It's a case where translating literally would destroy the meaning.

I like how you distinguish what the author knows and what Abraham knows. Very good focus.
