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 The beloved disciple vs Peter
Traditionally, the order is Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Many modern academics put order them as Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John.

comment Given the differences between Hebrew and Aramaic, how are the Aramaic sections identified?
amazon.com/Introduction-Aramaic-Second-Resources-Biblical/dp/… is the textbook I used. But I would also carefully consider this one: amazon.com/Basics-Biblical-Aramaic-Complete-Annotated/dp/…

comment Why does God say he only revealed his name, Yahweh, to Moses?
Good answer. In the Exodus, they experience God as the great I Am while before they had heard the name. The difference is in knowing someone and knowing of someone.

comment Psalm 23 - long long pursuit of the house of the LORD
"All translation is commentary" reminds me of Hillel the Elder in Shabbat 31a, “Do not do unto others what you would not have them do unto you. This is the whole of Torah; the rest is commentary. Go now and study the commentary.”

comment Who/what is Peter's angel?
even though you used Wright (a trustworthy source), I can't upvote because there is no link between aggelos and phantasmos. (I'm not downvoting either. :))

revised Who is the man in Daniel's vision in Daniel 10?
Clarified who the "he" was. I thought it was Daniel when I first read your answer, meaning I read it as "since Daniel refers to Michael..."

comment What is the “fourfold sense of Scripture”?
Welcome to BH! I like how you addressed how we can apply it today. I changed your square brackets to parentheses (the two have different meanings and parens work with what you are trying to say). I also placed your example into the numbered list to show the four levels more clearly. I hope you stay around and answer more!
