I can believe that. Before Perseus, I wouldn't even try to read
anything classical. Since I'm teaching myself, though, I prefer
the simpler Koine. I read the Bible every day anyways, so why
not in the original? And I'm a simple kind of guy...
Recently, C.W.Conrad corrected some mis-translations of Greek by
saying, "no, if they meant that, they would have written it like this".
I wish I could write similar, slightly different sentences to draw
out the real meaning of the passage.
