Re: How to translate ἐρχόμενος?

Can you recommend some that I can access for free online? I don't read paper books any more. Look at the Greek grammars here on Textkit . They aren't for the New Testament specifically, except for the short treatment from James Strong (which isn't a full course). I recommend that you start with Fir...

Re: How to translate ἐρχόμενος?

My formal training was in AI but interested in Biblical Greek as a hobby. More so now that I am semi-retired. Nice. Considering taking up a specific study? "Biblical Greek" is really a thing. Biblical Greek is just a limited corpus of Koiné Greek. We tend to recommend lots of reading of Greek texts...

Re: How to translate ἐρχόμενος?

Well, it is absurd for her to say that she has "always believed" that Jesus was the Messiah. That makes no sense at all, so the NLT is out. It is also generally unacceptable to translate a present participle in a completed sense. Two strikes for this translation. The third strike is the addition of ...

Re: How to translate ἐρχόμενος?

Hi, TonyChanYT. Is Tony Chan your name? Welcome to B-Greek and congrats for making your first post. Participles do not have tense of their one. It is most natural to read this as referring to the future, since the main verb of the sentence is in the present tense ( εἶ ). "You are the one doing x." I...

Re: Please help me to identify the letters in greek

The first and the thrid word are ok. The second one I was able to find it exactly the same way in this other resouce. Here is a snip with the portion of the text with that word. For the other two that's the way they are presented in the book. Can you help me with those? I have put you on moderated ...

Re: Hi to all.

Nothing beats a pen and paper. Write out the English glosses you want to learn along the left side of the sheet. On the far right side, try to write them out from memory in Greek. Check it. Whatever you did wrong, give it thought, maybe write it down in a new sheet as part of a "work on this" list. ...

Re: Ισαακ or Ισακ

Ισαακ or Ισακ The hebrew pronunciation was something like "yitschâk" (I don't know any hebrew, so I have to trust the Internet for that). As Greek Variants I see Ισαακ (in most Manuscripts), Ισακ (in Cod. Sin., Cod. Bezae, P13, P46). In Editions: Ισαακ. Septuagint as far as I could check: only Ισαα...

Re: Ancient Greek Graphic Novel

I just found some graphic novels of various Ancient Greek stories by Magda van Tilburg. This link is to a section from Herodotus ( History Book II.121) called "the smart thief": https://booxalive.nl/de-slimme-dief/ . It looks like there are four Greek stories available for free to read! Looks fun, ...

Re: Luther's translation of αἰών/αἰώνιος

Thank you for fixing my post. I'll try to add the diacritical marks myself next time, although I have Windows 10, which doesn't do that. I added a .dll that is supposed to enable diacritics but it doesn't seem to work very well. My best option so far has been to find the word I need in an existing ...
