"I am interested in all aspects of Religion. I have studied both the original languages and the primary texts related to Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism. The languages include Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, and Sanskrit. The texts include the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament), The Septuagint (the Greek Old Testament), The Apocrypha, The Greek New Testament, the writings of the Church Fathers, the Qur'an, and the Vedas. I have also been introduced to the primary texts of other religions in the English language.

I have an avid interest in learning the languages of sacred literature, learning the background for each piece of literature and learning how to interpret the literature. This interpretation is based upon a thorough analysis of the language, text and background for the text.

I have been given several opportunities to teach Greek at various levels, New Testament Introduction, Ephesians, 1 Corinthians, Romans, James, World Religions, Church History, Old Testament Survey and textual Exegesis. My master's thesis was on Hermeneutical Models. This paper analyzed various systems of interpreting texts and proposed a new system for understanding the process of interpretation. I am currently researching the Greek verbal system. My PhD dissertation is on the verbal aspect of Greek Perfect tenses, which involves sifting through competing views, while finding commonalities between opposing views.

I have tutored diverse students particularly in languages and exegesis of those languages. These students I tutored were able to excel in the class because of my tutoring, in spite of starting the course being deficient in one or more skills which the course demanded.

I am an experienced student-paper editor, who critiques the student papers with an eye for what is publish-worthy. Many of the papers I have proofread and helped them edit have become published within the academic field of the student." less...
