Software Developer, part-time pastor, and I raise chickens. Who can't love a chicken?

For Christianity.stackexchange.com, my religious background:

  • Grew up in a Protestant, evangelical, nondenominational "Bible Church" (-1990)
  • earned a M.Div at a Baptist Seminary (2008) and pastored a very small Baptist church (2004 - 2008)
  • Served in an Episcopal Church, and yes I did that site. (2008 - 2013)
  • Now attending a Baptist church that has a true passion for breaking down the barriers of church so as to focus on the original mission of the church - namely to bring Jesus to a dying world.

comment Is the al-Hallaj of the Yazidi religion Jesus?
I have no first-hand experience, but Yazidi appears to be a syncretistic religion, in the same way that the Karuke Krishitan in Japan took elements of Christianity and folded it into their own religions.

comment Why was the New Testament Written in Greek?
Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our about and specifically How we are different than other sites. Unfortunately, this just sounds like a forum post, as opposed to a researched answer. There is debate over Aramaic primacy which should be acknowledged. There is no sourcing for the assertion that Jesus spoke Latin. Hebrew is not a sacred language - there are many assertions that I don't think will stand the scrutiny of research.
