I am an amateur investigator into the era of Jesus and the apostles. I hold a B.A. in Classics and currently work as a Site Manager and Scoring Director for an educational handscoring and test development firm. I spent nine years of my youth living in Mexico. I am a Christian. What kind of Christian? Put me in a line of Christians, randomly chosen, and those to my left will say that I am a diehard conservative, those to my right that I am a raging liberal. But I have far more interest in history than in theology. My website is TextExcavation, which I am always in the process of developing. I am also a team blogger at Thoughts on Antiquity.
