I have been studying 1 Corinthians 1 for a while (specifically v.26-31). I have been baffled by the alternate use of the word "Moros" (μωρός) in simple translations but the variant "Mora" (μωρά) is sometimes used. Is there a significance to this? If so, what is it? What is the difference between th...

I may have the opportunity to teach a session at a NT Greek refresher course ("I kinda learnt Greek at seminary 25 years ago and haven't really used it since") and I'd like to give the students some papyri to read, to give them a taste of "real-world" Koine. Could anyone suggest some materials that...

Ever deeper, ever deeper goes a journey with Cyril and Nestorius as traveling companions. Thanks for the articles Stirling. James, I had indeed not seen the context at all...I had captured the text on TLG while running a search on biazetai. I guess our writer must have been a pseudo A. Old Athanasi...
My gut feeling (and it's only that, I haven't the time to do a proper search right now) is that ἄρτι can carry a sense of "up until now", and νῦν can carry a sense of "now, at this moment" Shirley R. How do you read ἕως ἄρτι? ἕως ἄρτι - "up until now" - but those are only 'gut feelings' from how I'...

Some of the forms of φέρω seem totally unrelated to φέρω in just about every visual way. Is there any way to explain why φέρω looks so different in these forms? If you need some help with similar verbs, check out the chapters of the Online Textbook http://www.drshirley.org/greek/textbook02/chapter2...

Several things are suggested here. 1) Prepositions don't easily map from one language to another, in what one would expect from having learned the initial glosses at the beginning level. We were just discussing this in our Latin 4 lit class the other day. 2) Individual authors might use different p...

Apparently the Greek Orthodox Church has also done a bit of re-writing : "ὡς καὶ ἡμεῖς ἀφίεμεν τοῖς ὀφειλέταις ἡμῶν" (eg. at http://www.orthodoxprayer.org/Lords_Prayer.html (though the rest of the text follows Matthew rather than Luke) Maybe they think it's best to say we're working on forgiving the...
