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.

I checked the Vulgate because Jerome preferred to work from the Hebrew. He is no help here because the Psalm stops with verse 10 in the Vulgate.

comment What was Er's sin?
Ah, s.b. "he was a firstborn and failed to act appropriately." That is, act as a firstborn should act in passing on the name and legacy.

comment What was Er's sin?
@JackDouglas, you mean Er's sin was displeasing because he was a firstborn and act appropriately? I can agree to that.

comment Why did Elisabeth remain in seclusion in Luke 1:24?
We did the same thing: waited to announce until the time when most miscarriages occur was past. Hadn't considered that.
