Re: Greek Byzantine New Testament MP3

The Maurice Robinson recordings are included in BibleWorks (while they are still open for the next week or so). Their closure might mean someone else (Accordance?) picks up their catalogue to resell. This other NT recording is not from the Hellenic Bible Society, and is a bit quick, but it is clear ...

Re: 5x1 definition challenge

Back to the original topic, though:

ὀλιγόπιστος (οὐσιαστικό): ὀ μικρήν πίστιν ἔχειν

ἀρετή (οὐσιαστικό): τι ἄνθρωπος ἔχων, ὤστε λέγομεν περί αὐτού λέγων Αὐτος μεγας και δίκαιος ἐστίν

(Please pardon and/or correct my many errors; I am very new at this.)

Re: 5x1 definition challenge

Is there a textbook that provides example sentences for each vocabulary word that is fully comprehensible for the student in the Greek ? Randall Buth has "400 friends", "Λέξεις 400" -- I have a Greek one from the John audio package, but I think they might be included with the textbooks as well, pos...

Re: Sad news about BibleWorks

Microsoft and Apple march ever forward ensuring that you will not be using 50 to 60-year-old software. The nature of an operating system means that it needs to remain tied to the latest hardware -- its job is to make the latest hardware useful to application software. But that doesn't mean we can't...

Re: Modern Koine pronunciation resources

John Simon (from Austin, Texas) reads the entire Greek New Testament here:

(He also has Hebrew and Latin content there.)

I found this via a handy list of Greek audio by Louis Sorenson here:

Re: θυσίας in Leviticus 2. 3

This question seems to be about neither Greek nor Hebrew, but English! I think the confusion is coming from the 1611 archaic usage of "meat" which then meant what we now mean by "a meal" or "food" in general. The context (Leviticus 2:1) specifies that this θυσια/מנחה is not animal flesh but grain fl...

Where does ἀγάπη come from?

Where does ἀγάπη come from? (The word, that is.) I've followed up comments from Leon Morris in a 1979 address on 'Love, Christian Style' in BDAG and Nygren's Eros and Agape and wondering if there is more info around than the sparse and aging info there? The story I'm getting is that it barely appear...

Re: Use of DIO in Philippians 2:9

I'm not an expert, but I don't think either διό or the aorist indicatives ὑπερύψωσεν καὶ ἐχαρίσατο force the matter of time -- they're just past with respect to the writer/reader -- but your assumption (3, 1 in restatement) does.

Re: Use of DIO in Philippians 2:9

Bobby, 'because of but not after' seems logically possible (defended philosophically in Eleonore Stump, The God of the Bible and the God of the Philosophers , and I think the Greek terms could bend that way), but a much unlikelier reading than the more obvious inclusion of temporal reference in this...
