  1. Hello Scott!
    My name is Nicole and I’m a seminary student doing some research on Hebrews 6:1-8. I stumbled upon your blogpost from 10 years ago on that passage and found it very helpful! I was wondering if you’d be willing to exchange a couple emails on an interpretive question I have. I would love your input on something that’s come up in my research.

    • Sure. I don’t want to give my home email out here. I don’t think I have an email or private messaging option on the blog, but if you want to connect to my Facebook/Meta page of the same blog name (use spaces there), we can PM through there.

      • I definitely understand that. It asked for my email when I commented and said it wouldn’t be made public but I guess you didn’t see it on your end either. I’ll search on FB.
