Re: Catenae Graecorum Patrum

This is a marvelous resource. However, the author is a good 19th century Anglican, not a Roman Catholic. He was typical of the stress on patristics in the Anglo-Catholic (also called the Oxford Movement). The Greek language here is not Koine or NT; the fathers cited wrote much more literary Greek. T...

Re: What Secular Greek texts do you give NT Greek students?

Yes, Aristobulus is only available in fragments, i.e. citations in later authors. This is true of many ancient Greek and Lartin authors. The best collection of them in Greek is Albert-Marie Denis, FRAGMENTA PSEUDEPIGRAPHICORUM QUAE SUPERSUNT GRAECA. Leiden: E. J. Brill, 1970. Aristobulus is included...

Re: Smyth "A Greek Grammar"

No one has mentioned the grammar by Ludwig Radermacher in the Handbuch zum Neuen Testament [one can read this one for fun] or his work entitled "Koine" of volume 2 of the Geschichte der griechiscehn Sprache in the Sammlung Gösschen.
