About

Thanks for stopping by!  My name is Kevin Jackson.  I live in the Pacific Northwest (the Tri Cities).   I work at the Hanford Nuclear reservation, doing computer work.  I’ve been married since 1993.  We have three children.  We are active in our church, and both come from a Nazarene background.  I love to study God’s word. My favorite scripture passages are: Matthew 5-8, Romans 8, Philippians 2, and the book of First John. My hobbies are: blogging, studying theology, memorizing scripture, hiking, backpacking, gardening, politics, and wasting time on the computer.

  1. Kevin,

    It’s great to read your posts. I love it!

  2. Is there a way to contact you outside the comment section?

  3. I just found your blog! I teach at SNU, and am working on a doctorate in Wesley Studies at University of Manchester. Check out my blog when you have a chance.

  4. Kevin, I am looking for a good commentary on Romans from an Armenian viewpoint. I do not consider myself either a Calvinist or an Armenian, but am actively involved as a missionary teacher in Southeast Asia.

    Thanks for your site. You have done a good job. I do not run a blog at present, but the website below has my writings on marriage and related topics.

    • Hi Mike, Thanks for stopping by and for the kind words. The link to the website with your articles didn’t make it through. Picrilli’s book on Romans is supposed to be good (I haven’t read it yet). The New Beacon Bible Commentary is also a good resource.

        Mike – my husband and I just started the NBBC, Romans 1-8: A Commentary in the Wesleyan Tradition (New Beacon Bible Commentary). LOVE it. I highly recommend it!!

        Kevin – I’ve just started browsing your site and am loving what I see. My husband and I are Nazarene, but he is currently in law school at a predominantly Baptist university. It has sparked some quite interesting debate, the most recent debate having led me on an in-depth search… and here I am at your site, studying more about Arminian theology.

      • Thanks for stopping by Emily. I hope you find the blog helpful. :)

    • Never mind, I see the link by clicking on your name. :)

  5. Hi Kevin,
    Thanks for the info. MY website is intermin.org.

    Blessings!

    I am so happy to have found your site!! (Lucky for me someone shared your old post on Wesleyan Women on Facebook in response to Piper’s latest assertion.) I am a part-time seminary student and a Methodist and I have been looking for commentaries in the Wesleyan/Arminian tradition and your recommendation for NBBC is perfect. Looking forward to reading more of your posts!

    • Thanks for stopping by Beth! Piper means well I think, but it’s very sad to see him discourage women from following their God given calling. If you haven’t see them already, you might enjoy the series I did about women being called to preach. You can find it here.

      Our small group has just finished a study on 1 John, and we used the NBBC. It was very good.

  7. Thanks for the additional responses to my query. I’ll look at the resources you all mentioned. It will be a challenge to teach Romans in four hours, so it is probably more accurate to day I will teach FROM Romans.

    Blessings to All!

  9. Thanks so much for this site. I’m a mom and wife that loves God and enjoys reading scripture ( and hopefully applying it to my life!) This is really helpful in view of all the majority of printed material out there.

    Question why do you cling to either side? I get why you wouldn’t be a calvanist… it seems to brings the very character of God into question… Just a curious new believer wondering why you chose one of these two sides? instead of praying to be united in one Spirit, as is in Colossians & in one of your favorite books Phillipines 2:1-11
