Re: Numbers 21:13

You will get more out of your work if you focus on learning Greek grammar as the key to understanding the Greek without appealing to outside sources. Best of luck to you as you continue your studies. I am more towards lexicology rather then Grammar, i can translate words but i struggle forming sent...

Re: τοῦτό ἐστιν τὸ σῶμά μου

thanks again for your replies. I continued to think about this, and I ask you to please translate this for me, - it's not written literally in this way, but I believe it would help on the way to better understanding of our original verse; How would you, please, translate this: ἐσθιόντων δὲ αὐτῶν λα...

Re: Modern Koine pronunciation resources

Thanks! I've only heard one Modern Greek recording on Youtube and it was quite old. This one is much better.

Re: Modern Koine pronunciation resources

I'm not sure what trolling Youtube means but I meant PDF's, epubs, etc. Something that can used without internet. Probably should've said that, sorry.

But it's mainly offered on campus rather than online. The Greek courses have webpa...
