Stack Exchange employs me as a Community Manager. I've been known to respond to jericson@stackexchange.com. Alternatively, I maintain an office on chat. (Please ignore the meta cruft.)

You can read about what I've done over the years in my curriculum vitae.

On a personal note, I'm married and have three children. Our oldest son loves school, friends, games, and reading. (He can't wait to get on our LEGO® Answers site, but he's not quite old enough. My posts there are usually at his request.) Two of my children happen to have been born on the same day. I sometimes write about that experience.

Don't have time for a full review of something? Why not try my 5-second reviews?

Occasionally, I write a post for Eschewmenical.

comment Which experts believe Paul “lost” his arguments in 1st Corinthians?
Welcome to BH.SE! It's exciting that you've started out by asking three great (and diverse) questions. Although it would be entirely tangential to the question, would you mind linking to the theory in question?

revised The beloved disciple vs Peter
The first sentence was a bit disjointed so I cleaned it up. ;-) Feel free to re-edit if I changed your intended meaning.

comment What was Ruth's legal status?
I'm not sure I understand why all the rigmarole. It makes for a great story of redemption and romance, but why did Boaz even bring up the field? It sounds like he did something clever, but I don't know what. Is the point that he managed to get both the girl and the field instead of just Ruth?

comment Was Goliath killed twice?
Good work at pulling a great question out of yesterday's drafts. It seems like potential contradictions could be a rich vein to mine for questions in.

comment Misleading “but” in Matthew 5:22 KJV?
+1 That's a really good point. Now I'm not so sure of my answer, however. ;-)

comment Misleading “but” in Matthew 5:22 KJV?
This started as a comment, but grew into a full answer. What I don't know however, is if there's any reason to use δε versus δ. Did Matthew (or subsequent scribes) usually pick one to mean "but" and the other to mean "and"? This verse would imply that usage.

I went ahead and asked the question of how Paul's defense works myself. It's an important question that troubles many.
