Re: Towards clarity: Defining Christian "disciple-making" (το μαθητευειν) from a purely lexical-contextual perspective

Jonathan, I private messaged you and assure you advertisement was not in my mind at all as much as promoting something I'm sincerely excited about and believe Greek enthusiasts can help me promote. For pragmatic purposes (e.g. clarity in the Church regarding discipleship as a concept) not commercia...

Towards clarity: Defining Christian "disciple-making" (το μαθητευειν) from a purely lexical-contextual perspective

More and more people are talking about "discipleship" these days, which is wonderful! But the more I read and hear, it seems everyone has their own definition they are offering about what this action means, or involves. Like most of the people on this site, I am a Greek nerd. (My own training is in ...

"I want to be able to SMOOTHLY read the newspaper in Koine!"

"I want to be able to smoothly read the newspaper in Koine Greek"! Teachers and learners of Koine Greek come to the learning 'table' with goals that range as widely as methods employed to reach them. And this is healthy. I myself have been in teaching and learning settings where I have had goals ra...

Re: KOINE PHRASEBOOK

Secondly, I really don't know where this Greek is from. If I get a hit from Euthyphro, that tells me naught all (without spending more time than I have researching who this Greek dude is). Is this 7th Century BC Greek or 1st Century? Is there a list of Koine Greek collections so that I could narrow...

Seeking Help with new Koine vocab-building supplement

I'm currently facilitating work on the "C.L.A.P. Picture Memory Game", which will comprise a very simple audio-visual Koine vocabularly-building supplement. (CLAP = "click", "listen", & "point") At present there is a need for narrators, consultants for more analytic competency-type matters, and cons...

When you say "pages", are you thinking of paper publication only? This would be tremendously useful in many formats - flashcard so...
