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 Moses Speak Broken Hebrew?
That Hebrew was a written language in the BC time is well established in the field. The Masoretes established the vowel points used today, but they already had a written language. Look up Paleo Hebrew to see what it looked like in the time of the kings.

Thanks for pointing those out! I'm also looking at some things in the Septuagint and found a couple more Hebrew words I'd like to look into (male' is used in Exodus).
