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 Does the Shibboleth story help us date the book of Judges?
That doesn't say "editing" to me. It says "preserved."

comment Does the Shibboleth story help us date the book of Judges?
"He seems to imply that this counts as a sort of literary flourish that results from careful editing, rather than a carefully preserved bit of linguistics as I'd imagined the story to be." Like you, I'd conclude the opposite as he does. There are parts of the Pentateuch (which Judges is not, but bear with me) that show themselves to be older. For instance, Gen 1 contains a few nouns with case endings, which faded from Hebrew long ago. Ex 15 is similar but the passages before and after lack them. It would be like a modern book having 3 paragraphs in KJ English in the middle of a chapter.
