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 When was Ruth written?
@MarkEdward, I agree. Now that I think of it, I can come up with a couple of reasons to skip Solomon if written afterwards.

comment Was the text of Matthew 28:19 changed?
I'll keep my list of citations from the ANF in case it is requested. But posting it really just junks the answer. References available upon request. :)

comment Was the text of Matthew 28:19 changed?
@Daи, it wasn't complete without the ANF. However, I was shocked at how little evidence there is against the long form. Eusebius is the only writer to use a short form. I have more references to the ANF, but adding them really junks the looks of the answer.

Regarding note 3, that Keil says Jeremiah and Driver says not Jeremiah does not surprise me at all.

comment Jacob's name is Israel. So why is he still called Jacob?
It's hard to see how they are different people in view of Genesis 32:28 "No longer will your name be Jacob," the man told him, "but Israel, because you have fought with God and with men and have prevailed."

@Daи, I've got some good progress on an answer, but I'm trying to search through the Church Fathers for their citations of Matt 28:19. Should I post what I've got and edit later or wait till I've got it all?
