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.

revised What portions of the New Testament are purported to have originally been written in Aramaic?
I found a copy of your review from the Stone-Cambell Journal's website and copied it here. I probably copied too much, but I did leave out the background paragraph that does not touch on the question.

revised In the Peshitta NT, what was the original meaning of the word often translated “first day of the week”?
I've inserted quotations from the relevant texts. I picked the Aramaic Bible in Plain English because of the nature of the question. We can use some other translation instead if you like.

revised What is the “Water” of Genesis 1:2?
