Good luck, Christina. What book or program are you using for your introduction? :)

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

It is common but incorrect to claim that Yeshu was an acceptable form of the name in the first century. The claim is based on ONE ossuary. All other ancient attestations are ישוע . And the one ossuary is peculiar. The name Yeshu is written right up to a border line with no spaceישו, and elsewhere o...

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...

Oh, and (perhaps more importantly) what grasp do you have of Greek, if any?

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). ♥
Sorry for the nerdiness.

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?
