Speaking Engagements

What materials I present

My materials contain a thorough sifting from the best of the available biblical scholarship, coupled with my own research and thoughts regarding scholarship.  My material reflects a keen interest in the way one takes information from the Greek Bible and presents it to others in Modern languages, such as English.  This often involves a variety scientific approaches to analyzing text and language.  In the course of my studies, I have been exposed to a number of issues that impact one’s understanding of the text.  Some of these materials are well-suited to interested persons of all types, while others might be best for a group of pastors, or group leaders.  I am prepared to lecture and moderate discussion regarding several topics listed below:
