Re: Pronunciation of initial I in Semitic names

Not quite sure what you mean by 'value' of the letter Iota, but in this case Greek ι = Hebrew י, which is a vowel-consonant (used to represent both a vowel and a consonant), and as such is very much a consonant at the beginning of Semitic names. For the pronunciation of ι, then see https://www.bibli...

Re: discorse: Athanasius On the incarnation

Is there a Critical Apparatus to this at all? I see that Archibald has omitted translating ὁ Σωτήρ/the saviour, so just wondering whether that's an oversight/purposeful omission. There are quite a few things in the translation that also don't add up, example: καὶ μὴ νομίσῃς ὅτι φύσεως ἀκολουθίᾳ σῶμα...

Re: Conjugation of ποιέω: ἐποίησα

I'm not quite sure what Bill Mounce says on this, but it sounds to me that you're either confusing the imperfect and the aorist, or are thinking in terms of the 2nd aorist and not the 1st aorist. Double check what Mounce says concerning the 1st aorist. Also, as we're dealing with an -εω verb, this m...

Re: Recommend papyri for teaching?

Archive.org has quite a few of 'The Oxyrhynchus Papyri' volumes there, several of which contain translations of the papyri contained within:

Re: Finding Searchable Texts of Jewish Apocalyptic Literature

The NIGTC is probably more referring to 2 Edras 7:113 (4 Ezra 7:113) as an example of the Apocalyptic literature 'in which the sequence of ages plays a significant role', rather than an example of the usage of συντέλεια (τοῦ) αἰῶνος. The Latin is as follows: dies enim iudicii erit finis temporis hui...

I'm kind of perplexed. Ῥαββί is just the transliterated form of the Hebrew רַבִּי, which means διδάσκαλος.
Actually, רַבִּי means 'My Great one' or 'My Master'; Hebrew for 'Teacher' is מוֹרֶה or מֵבִין.

Re: Why is the Johannine corpus so easy to read?

On Titus, the figure I got was 144 new words to learn, in the 659 word letter. It seems much harder to me (beginner-intermediate) than Matthew or Luke. Even though there are far fewer words to learn, they're concentrated in a small text, so that instead of 6-7% of words being new, it's 22%. A 15-wo...
