About

My name is Jason and this is my little corner of the web where I share my musings on everything from biblical studies to pop culture. I have a wonderful wife, Melissa, and 4 wonderful children–Leah, Andrew, Evan and Caleb. I was born and raised in Louisiana, but now reside in Heartland, TX. I am currently a Ph.D. student at Dallas Theological Seminary studying New Testament.

I graduated from Northwestern State University in 2001 with B.A. in Social Science and minor in French. I finisihed my M.Div. w/specialization in biblical languages at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in 2004, during the last semester of which we were called as pastor of Pisgah Baptist Church in Forest Hill, LA.

My interests range from reading (academic and leisure), golf, blogging, listening to and playing music (guitar and drums), and, of course, spending time with the family.

I am a member of both the Evangelical Theological Society and the Society of Biblical Literature.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope what you found was helpful and enjoyable!

    Jason,

    I wanted to let you know that you won a copy of How To Argue Like Jesus. I have no other way of notifying you. Please email me at tdelaney017@yahoo.com with your physical mailing address so I can send you your book.

    Thank you and God bless.

    Interesting to see a baptist adorning their blog with Eastern Orthodox iconography, and a very old-Byzantine Greek font to boot.

    John: I came across the icon a year or two ago and found it very appealing. Do you happen to know the details about it? And yes, the font is an old uncial font. I thought it looked better than standard Greek fonts. Thanks for stopping by!

    Looks like a fairly standard Orthodox icon of Christ. From the style, my guess would be Russian. The red inner clothing represents inner divinity and blue the humanity he put on. ο ων in the halo means “the one who is”, referring to the “I am”. The right hand blesses, and the left holds the Gospel.

    John: Thanks for the info. I recently received a stack of large volumes on Russian Orthodox icons. I’ll have to pore over them and see if this is indeed Russian. Don’t know that I even noticed the participle at the top!

    Welcome to the blogosphere. I’m fairly new myself. At the moment I’m finishing my M.Div. at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary and am anticipating being finished this coming August. Afterwards, I may pursue Pastoral Ministry via the PCA (Presbyterian Church in AMerica) or Doctoral Studies. Look forward to hearing more from you on here in the future.

    John, thanks for stopping by. I’m glad the Regional Foods were spot on! What’s your favorite from down that way?

    Follow me on Twitter (@eatingtheroad) and let me know your username so we can keep up!

    ETR: It’s hard to pick a favorite, so here are some favorites: muffulettas, roast beef po-boys (New Orleans style), boiled crawfish, and gumbo. There are a host of others, but these top the list. Oh yeah–red beans and rice!!!

    Prof. Jason:

    Many thanks for your very helpful web site.

    Please permit me to ask you a question. Is there way I can turn Helena (sometimes appears as Gentium) font (both appear as words using English letters into Greek font used in NA27?

    Thanks so much. sj

    Yours,
