Re: "I just don't think it makes you a better exegete ... " Theology, exegesis, and Learning Koine Greek Communicatively

Not too long ago someone posted a link to an article discussing research on language acquisition which concluded that composition didn't contribute significantly to acquisition. Reading and comprehending large volumes of text written by native speakers was the main factor in acquisition. You won't ...

Re: "How do we know how Koine Greek was pronounced?"

How did you produce that video? The hand looks like it was automated somehow. How hard is this kind of presentation to do?

Re: New Testament Audio Texts

I thought I would just add the link to my website in this thread, since it includes parts of the New Testament (mainly Luke and Mark) in the "Living Koine" pronunciation that are not anywhere else as far as I know:

Re: "How do we know how Koine Greek was pronounced?"

Thanks for the feedback! It's well taken. Yes, that is of course a very good question. I actually have a number of those that came up for me as I was making the video and I just kept telling myself, "I need to keep this at about 2 minutes" :) Eventually I do plan to make a much longer video that act...

At other times, I think this question comes up by those who are wondering what the best/right pronunciati...

Re: Finding a List of Modern Greek Bible Versions

That sounds like a very interesting project. Here are some of the most recent ones: 1901 - Alexandros Pallis / Αλέξανδρος Πάλλης (in Modern Greek) 1904 - Neofytos Vamvas / Νεόφυτος Βάμβας (in Katharevousa) 1967 - Vasilios Vellas / Βασίλειος Βέλλας (in Modern Greek) - this is with the Hellenic Bible ...
