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 Did the Preacher apply his heart or his mind to the task?
@davidbrainerd, I was thinking more of how we understand heart now (emotional) and people reading this in one of the older translations.

comment Is there additional significance in the pairings of the twelve disciples?
As a tax collector, Matthew would be expected to be a "by the numbers" man. Thomas, as we see in John, is a "I have to see it" man. That could be a reason to pair them.

@fdb, thank you. I went through several variations on that phrase trying to avoid the legal wording and came up with nothing better.
