Re: Are "Yeshu" and "Yeshua" translated identically in Greek as "Jesus"?

Thank you for your reply! Might you be able to provide me the name of this ossuary? I know that Chrstian Arabs say Yesua' (with the glottal "ayin" that you mention is now a minority in Hebrew). The argument of my Jewish friend is that, originally, Jesus' name was pronounced as Yeshu3 (with the ayin...

Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

So the interesting question then to me is this: how is understanding of a TSKS construction taught in the classics ? I know that there is a section in Smyth relating to it, but I just searched The Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek (2019) and found NOTHING relating to it. That's fascinating! Smyt...

Re: A Graded Reader keyed to Duff's Grammar

Thanks Susan and Jason both for the problem and non-problem reports! You do need a font that supports polytonic Greek to display polytonic Greek text. I don't think there are that many. I've picked for this document Alegreya which is Open Fonts Licensed and available from Google Fonts here: https:/...

ἀμὴν, ἀδελφέ!
Accents, my friend! The pause brings us ἀμήν, since it is followed by a comma, and ἀδελφός takes its accent on the antepenult in the vocative singular (ἄδελφε). ♥

Re: Looking for a study-partner

Greetings, Enak.

I moved your post to a different part of the forum (since it has nothing to do with forum projects). I hope you can find a study partner to work with.

Do you have a textbook that you want to work through?

Re: The expression: "ἐντεῦθεν καὶ ἐντεῦθεν"

How else would the questioner expect it to be understood? What possible agenda could be had regarding this verse? Sometimes I feel so naïve.
