My name is Brian (i.e., XegesIs). I initiated this Christian blog in January 2019 for Biblical Studies. Anyone is welcome to ask questions and comment.

There are some guidelines to follow.

First, you must abstain from foul language and behavior. Remain as respectful as it is humanly possible. I will not tolerate foul language and misconduct on this blog. Second, if you decide to comment, please remain truthful to the subject at hand. Do not start deviating into other subject matters that do not pertain to the main subject of a post. If you wish to discuss another matter altogether, then you may simply contact me at

I hope that it benefits your knowledge, understanding, and behavior either as a believer or a non-believer. The goal of this blog is to primarily share what I consider important information for all to become better persons through the spread of knowledge and understanding as well as good practice and rightful behavior.


Blog descriptions

Primary Blog (MCT): main blog about academic research and Biblical Studies

As I review my published posts and as I write more content, I will be incorporating the latest guidelines from The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th ed., whenever it might be applicable. I was not aware of the 17th edition, but now that I became self-aware, I will be following CMOS17.

MCT Blog Theme

This WordPress blog is literally black on white. I do not plan to add decorative backgrounds and colors, and I do not want this blog to ever become cluttered with ads and other distracting pop-ups. As it is now, this blog loads very quickly on desktops and smartphones, and the ease of reading on both platforms is exactly what I wanted for this blog. What I want from my visitors is the ease of reading. I believe this is exactly what I have achieved with this WordPress Theme–thanks to DinevThemes.
