Re: Interacting with a text without verse numbers marked

Jeffery right about the other software too. It's easy to suppress the referencing system entirely in accordance also. Like Jeffery I've also frequently led bible studies in english with all the "paratext" stripped out. It helps folk to get beyond textual "atomism". In the early years of formal instr...

Re: ...Nestle-Aland, UBS, or something else...?

If I may put in my 2c. If you can get a free copy of the Greek NT on your computer do learn how to be able to copy and paste it into various formats (word documents, emails, web pages like this) and learn how to be able to type it. There are high quality portable and free options out there! I found ...

Re: βλασφημείσθω

Glad you worked out how to make better use of perseus. I don't really use it enough. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it quicker than I have. There are I'm sure some perseus 'guns' out there in b-greek-world. It's one of those goldmines that are worth getting to know.

Re: An accusative absolute ? [Mk 3, 15var] [W 032]

At http://epapers.bham.ac.uk/1664/1/Bezae%2DLatin.xml You can find a transcription of the entire latin text of Codex Bezae. Don't know if that is of any help? The relevant section from there is (sorry line numbers and verse numbers got a bit jumbled): 1813et ascendit in montem · et uocauit ad se quo...

Re: βλασφημείσθω

Hi again Mike, I think you're doing just fine. You know the saying that goes something along the lines of "Give a man a fish and you'll feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you'll feed him for life" or whatever it is. Well I'm guessing that b-greek's task is to "teach" rather than "give"... p...

Re: βλασφημείσθω

Since you're on this forum I'm guessing you have access to the internet?

LSJ" link (5) There ...

Re: ἀληθής

The current edition of Bauer in english is not freely available online - BDAG (Bauer-Danker-Arndt-Gingrich) 2000/2001 Uni Chicago Press, though digital editions of it are available. Neither, as far as I am aware, are its two precursors, BAGD (1979) and BAG (1957). They are all well within copyright,...

Re: Conjugation of "forgive" in 1Jn 1:9

My electronic text of Smalley has its own textual issue at this point, but it is fairly clear that he's made an error re. the parsing (not conjugating) of the verb. He's not got another text in front of him.
