Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Jacob Cerone. I am married to my lovely and beautiful wife, Mary Beth. We have a newborn baby named Elijah, and two dogs (Tölpel and Jazz). My main interests lie in languages: Greek, Hebrew, Latin, and German. I also love theology (biblical, systematic, narrative, and historical). I am currently a student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary as a ThM candidate. My major professor is Dr. David Alan Black and my research focus is Septuagint studies. I currently attend Cary Alliance Church, and was recently ordained by the Christian and Missionary Alliance. I also serve as research assistant for Dr. David Alan Black. My hope is that all I learn and write will be to the glory of Christ.
ἐνθύμησις means “the process of considering, thought, reflection, idea” (BDAG). The material on this blog will not be directed towards one particular theme. It will cover areas of my life, ministry and study. In essence, what you will find here will be the byproduct of my thoughts from day-to-day and an ever evolving glimpse into my thoughts on various topics or interests through time.
One more note about the blog. The banner for the blog is a picture I took in December 2008 of Wartburg castle in Eisenach. This is where Martin Luther found refuge after the Diet of Worms. It is also where he translated the New Testament into German under the protection of Fredrick the Wise.
