Re: Infinitive in Ignatius to the Ephesians 3:2

Thanks Mike, so the next question... why not a noun phrase. The use of an infinitive seems somehow more dynamic than a noun given that it is a verb, but is that correct?

Infinitive in Ignatius to the Ephesians 3:2

Hi all, more infinitive questions (seems to be something I see more on the board at the moment than normal). How does the infinitive function in the text below? ἀλλʼ ἐπεὶ ἡ ἀγάπη οὐκ ἐᾷ με σιωπᾶν περὶ ὑμῶν, διὰ τοῦτο προέλαβον παρακαλεῖν ὑμᾶς, ὅπως συντρέχητε τῇ γνώμῃ τοῦ θεοῦ. καὶ γὰρ Ἰησοῦς Χριστό...

Re: FILM: Gospel of Mark in Koine Greek (Lumo Project - Faith Comes by Hearing - KaineDiatheke.com)

Hey Benjamin, can you make this available for download like the others. It would be good to listen though to help but would be useful to do so on the mobile at times

Re: 2 Clement 10:3

Thanks for the reply Barry, I hadn’t picked up on that use of εστιν so good to store that one away and make sense of the passage. Re the οιτινες - I was seeing that as introducing people who bring in human fears/worries due to their focus on pleasure. These people are the reason that the peace that ...

Re: Acts 9:15 ἐνώπιον ἐθνῶν τε καὶ βασιλέων υἱῶν τε Ἰσραήλ

Posts like this really do help me in more ways than one. It is great seeing a problem posed, and good answers given. It is equally as great to see established board members and Greek readers asking them, not just us beginners. Gives some hope on those days that not everything seems as easy in transl...

Re: Audio of the entire Gospel of Mark in Living Koine Greek pronunciation

Hey Benjamin, it would be great if you can make that one available for download like you have with the Gospel of Luke.
Loving listening to them, struggling mightily to move from Erasmian in pronunciation at the moment, but great to have something to measure myself against

Re: Works on the infinitive

Thanks for both suggestions Mike. I will get onto them (based on the price I will be getting the kindle version only on the first link!!!!) subordination strategies sounds useful given that most work I have read so far hasn’t really explained why you would use the infinitive with an article to portr...

Works on the infinitive

Hi all, can anyone recommend any good works on the infinitive from a linguistic viewpoint? I am currently reading Lovelady's dissertation on tagmemics and the infinitive but was wondering if there is anything newer. I also am going to re-read Denny Burke's book, and have Clyde Votaw and Hamilton For...

Prepositions workshop June 2017

Hey all, just wondering if anyone knows whether there will be a book coming out any time soon from the Greek prepositions workshop that was run back in June 2017?
I believe there was a book planned
