Grace and peace to you Greg. Praise the Lord....you have been saved.
Don’t know if you have e-Sword but if not, install it and then install some of the great commentary modules which will help you understand any particular verse or verses. I like The Expository Notes of Dr. Constable commentary module and also Jamieson, Fausset and Brown Commentary. And there are many other great modules available on this site.
Keep asking questions!
Thank you for the kind words. I'll look into the commentary that you mentioned.
