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...
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!

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 would enjoy getting to the point where I could read the Bible in Greek and experience it a little bit closer to the way those ...
