1. DESCRIPTION OF THE LIST
B-GREEK is an electronic conference designed to foster communication concerning the scholarly study of the Greek Bible. Anyone interested in New Testament Studies is invited to subscribe, but the list will assume at least a working knowledge of Biblical Greek. Those interested in learning to study the Bible more personally and less exclusively academic should join the BIBLE list
Subscription to this conference is open to anyone interested.
2. HOW TO SUBSCRIBE
You may subscribe by sending an e-mail message to
with the following request as the text of the message.
If you want to subscribe to only a digested version of the list, then give the command
You can be subscribed to both the immediate version and the digested version of the list at the same time.
This, the 'SUBSCRIBE ...,' must be part of the message; the subject line will be ignored. If you must request a subscription to a different address than your own return address you can give the command: SUBSCRIBE B-GREEK <address> but this requires operator intervention, and is therefore *not* appreciated.
3. WHERE TO SEND COMMANDS AND MESSAGES
Remember two simple rules-of-thumb:
If it's a command (SUBSCRIBE, UNSUBSCRIBE), send it to the list requester: MAJORDOMO@VIRGINIA.EDU
If it's a message for general distribution to the members of the list, send it to the list: B-GREEK@VIRGINIA.EDU
4. PLEASE DO NOT "REPLY" TO MESSAGES FROM THE LIST
Also, Please DO NOT USE THE REPLY function on your email's software when replying to the entire list. Half of the software out there replies only to the original sender, and half of it replies to the list owner! NONE of it will send a message to the list as a whole, so don't use your software's reply function!
5. MAJORDOMO LIST SERVER COMMANDS
Here are some additional MajorDomo listserver commands: HELP Retrieve the automated help message INFO <listname> Retrieve the general introductory message for the named list LISTS Show all the lists served by this Majordomo server END Stop processing commands - it is a good idea to put this command as the last command for any message to Majordomo WHO <listname> Show the members of the named list
