Re: Workbook Questions Clarification

Thank you for your response Dr. Buth! I agree completely that communicating in every way (speaking, writing, listening, etc.) with that language is a huge help to learning it. That's how I innately learned Tagalog growing up and the same with English--I never had to read a grammar. My follow up ques...

Biblical Greek Materials

Just searched various threads on this site about learning Greek and this is what I gathered so far: 1. Maximum exposure of Greek (30-45mins a day) 2. Read extrabiblical writings 3. Eventually learn attic and classical greek (or even start learning it) 4. Smyth + BDF are the preferred grammars 5. Rea...

Re: Workbook Questions Clarification

Is there something wrong with Dr. Wallace's grammar? :o I don't know about Stirling, but I'm being somewhat facetious. For the work doing at your level, as long as it is helping you interact with the Greek, it's fine. There are issues at a methodological level, and I think there are better material...

Re: Workbook Questions Clarification

I do not have the workbook (and hope never to have it) ... Yes, strive for a "Wallace-free" library and you will do better. "Wallace-free" functions as a qualifier of "library." I do have Wallace's GGBB simply because it is widely used and quoted, and it's helpful to have the "original text" availa...

Re: Workbook Questions Clarification

Now... Καὶ τῇ πρώτῃ ἡμέρᾳ τῶν ἀζύμων, ὅτε τὸ πάσχα ἔθυον, λέγουσιν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ I do not have the workbook (and hope never to have it), but the problem seems to be the word "related." Of course, πρώτῃ is "related" to ἡμέρᾳ as an adjective modifying a noun, and also the genitive. But here I...

Workbook Questions Clarification

Hello, I am learning Koine Greek on my own and I am reading Dr. Wallace's grammar. I am also doing his workbook and I have the answer sheet. My question is, what is the criteria of the "word related to" question? For example, the verse is Mark 14:12. "And on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when t...
