In Genesis 2:7-8 we read:וייצר יהוה אלהים את האדם עפר מן האדמה ויפח באפיו נשמת חיים ויהי האדם לנפש חיה ויטע יהוה אלהים גן בעדן מקדם וישם שם את האדם אשר יצרAnd Adonai God formed the man of dust from…Continue

Books I consider Canonical:
Tanak (Old Testament)
Favorite version of Scriptures:
About me:
I love math, science (esp. entomology), textual criticism, and martial arts. Of course the passion for scriptural exegesis overshadows the former things to the point that it need not be included in the list. I love the Most High and how He destroys my biblical paradigms every few years. I enjoy these moments of intellectual humility because they remind me that the job of interpreting scripture will never end and that the more I learn, the more I realize that I don't know anything. It's awesome. I tend to take an academic approach to scripture because I believe the law of parsimony to be true most of the time. Objective data comes before subjective data always (Peshat first).
Marital Status
Erez Yehiel, Hazakim, Idan Raichel, Ronen Shalom, Ariq Sinai and good old 80's music.
Paleography; Real big on Textual Criticism and am proficient in Biblical Hebrew; NT Apologetics; I Own copies of the Hebrew Biblical DSS, Hebrew Sectarian DSS, Codex Vaticanus {B}, Codex Sinaiticus {א}, Codex Khabouris, Peshitto/Syriac Tanach, Von Gall Torah Shomronit (Samaritan Pentateuch / תורה שומרונית), Shem Tov's Hebrew Matthew, Jacob Chaim's Rabbinic Bible, Bible Hebraica Stuttgartensia (critical תנ״ך), the Mesorah, and much of the Chazal. HaShem {ב״ה} has blessed me greatly. Biblical (manuscript) languages: Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, Ugaritic, Latin
Sharing the majesty of Adonai with people and rippling the stagnate waters of antinomian Christianity.
Favorite Television Shows and Movies:
History Channel, NatGeo, How The Earth Was Made; stuff like that. Oh and the Steve Wilkos show sometimes.

וידעת עם-לבבך כי כאשר ייסר איש את-בנו יהוה אלהיך מיסרך  
ושמרת את-מצות יהוה אלהיך ללכת בדרכיו וליראה אתו

"Thus you are to know in your heart that the LORD your God was disciplining you just as a man disciplines his son.
"Therefore, you shall keep the commandments of the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to fear Him. (Dt 8:5-6)

From the חז”ל:

-- Polemo inquired of Rabbi (saying), “If a man has two heads, upon which one must he put tefillin?” The Rabbi replied, “you must either go into exile or be regarded as banned” – (Talmud Bavli, Masechta Menachot, 37a)
What is your favorite quote? (From Scripture or elsewhere)

Posted on April 18, 2012 at 4:30pm 5 Comments

Something I've been interested in for awhile is the possibility of a textual variation in Genesis 49:22. When the MT (= Massoretic Text), LXX (= Septuagint), and SP (= Samaritan Pentateuch) are compared something arises:…


Exegesis: 1 Enoch 15:8-12 -- Rephaim, Nephilim, Giants, and Demons

Posted on March 30, 2012 at 3:00am 2 Comments

The Book of Enoch, a pseudepigraphic work, provides extra-biblical details on the era that preceded the deluge. In its expository retelling of several events, the book offers an etiology for certain or perhaps all, evil spirits. Based upon Schodde's translation of the Ethiopic documents, The Book of…
