Exegete Everything

The word "exegete" means literally "to lead out." The subject of Biblical Hermeneutics is dedicated to the science and art of interpreting Scripture. As a Christian, I believe that we should thoughtfully interpret, share, and apply Scripture, to our cultures, communities, and ourselves. This site is an attempt at capturing some of that in my own life.

Home Cook: Dabbling

My last meal? The food would be much less significant than the company.
— Mario Batali

Why cook?

1) Hobby. I wanted a creative outlet that wouldn't necessarily take me away from family and friends and so cooking scratched that itch.

2) Hospitality. Jana and I LOVE entertaining people. Having our home filled with family and friends from all walks of life is something that our family genuinely enjoys.

3) Jesus. Who he was and is around the table is beautiful.
