Re: Koine Greek Whatsapp group

Can you give an example of how WhatsApp can be used for language learning? I'm not sure that it would be worth getting messages while you're sleeping. ;) I mean, if someone sends a voice message while you're sleeping on the other side of the world (which might wake some people up), then you want to ...

Re: Hi everyone

I’m just starting out learning Koine Greek so I can read the Bible in the original Greek. I started learning two years ago using the Mounce book, but didn’t get very far because I’m trying to avoid using any glosses or translation. I recently found the online Koine Greek class on biblicallanguagece...

Re: Why not start with modern Greek?

It's obviously the same situation with Hebrew. Learning modern Hebrew will only assist in learning biblical Hebrew, but learning modern Hebrew is not sufficient for proficiency in the biblical language. I think we'll agree that the case is the same with modern Greek and the biblical or classical for...

Re: Help for a translation

Right, the difference is that I took σέ as the subject of the infinitive rather than the object, which I think makes better sense out of the ὅτι clause, but I'm also annoyed at having to exegete this sentence, since I'm getting older and grumpier. Your reading is also possible. I'm about to hit for...

I don't remember a message from you. Could you send me a PM. I'll fix it right now. :ugeek:

And I certainly apologize on our behalf if we got the message but missed it. Thanks for your attention to this.

Re: Help for a translation

I would render something like "Child, we are under great obligation to our parents even for you to be mindful that the one who sins against his parents sins twice." I took both χάριν and ενθυμεῖσθαι as objects of ὀφείλομεν . That is, we owe our parents thanks and we also owe them to look after you.

Re: Help for a translation

Jason, you're right regarding the hortatory subjunctive. I'm not sure about your interpretation of the whole sentence though. No problem. We all have our different readings of texts. ;) If there were more context, we might be able to come to some agreement. For the purposes of housekeeping, have yo...

Re: Help for a translation

οφειλομεν means to be obligated, ie. with respect to parents (τοıς γονευσıν) be filial. The ομεν ending has a hortatory sense, "let us be...". Shouldn't the hortatory be in the subjunctive rather than the indicative? τοῖς γονεῦσıν ὀφείλομεν should just be read as "we are obligated to our parents," ...
