Re: Romans 1:1. Own translation. Grammar check

Thank you Barry, (1) Yes, I understood the “problem”. I am glad I am on track, so far. … The context is interesting (!), but I am not presenting my interpretation here.

Re: Form of the Word Πολύς in Matthew 24:12

Matthew 24:12: "Καὶ διὰ τὸ πληθυνθῆναι τὴν ἀνομίαν ψυγήσεται ἡ ἀγάπη τῶν πολλῶν ." The majority of Bible translations which I have checked render the last word as “many,” whereas there are also many translations which use the comparative form “most.” At least two translations render the word as “gr...

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": . It looks like there are four Greek stories available for free to read! Looks fun, ...

Re: εὐθύς in Mark

It was easier to just search for it on the web, because academia wants to do all kinds of extra stuff for me. OFF TOPIC Been using Academia for ages to get articles one at a time. No problems. You just refuse all offers to upgrade. Serious or even semi-serious treatments of language and exegesis ar...

There is no evidence in ancient times for the 'palatalized' pronunciation of κ as [kʲ] before front vowels which is normal in modern Greek.

Thank you for posting that Perry. Should I understand from that that since the subject in the previous Claus is Satan, the subject and the claws under consideration now is non-optional and explains why it is explicit?
Or, Jeffrey. :lol:
I think he meant Barry (dyslexia of the fingers ?)

Re: A Newbie Greek Learner

Hello! I just officially made my entrance into the world of Biblical Greek, so I likely won't be active for awhile. Even the beginner threads I saw were way over my head!

I have an interest in Koine Greek, though only having the most rudimentary skills in dealing with its complexities. I am nearly entirely dependent upon resources and upon commentary by those skilled in it. Anyhow...thanks for the opportunity to benefit from your superior abilities! Daryl Welcome, D...

Re: Colors in Ancient Greek

What has just occurred to me is that, even today, different people-groups 'see' colors differently. Many years ago I taught a class composed entirely of Iraqi students - and they had great difficulty in distinguishing between 'blue' and 'green' (It was a Chemistry class; one of the tests for an alka...
