Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

“ Siebenthal’s grammar can fairly be called a research grammar: it certainly replaces Blass, Debrunner, and Rehkopf (and even more so Blass, Debrunner, and Funk, the English translation of an earlier Blass and Debrunner), and it is much more comprehensive than Wallace, Greek Grammar beyond the Basi...

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

Right now, I am using Siebenthal and the Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek as my two go-to grammars. You are using the Classical Greek one for Koine or for classical? For Koine, in much the same way that I use Smyth. Koine is close enough to Attic that you can learn a lot from a good classical g...

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

I have the German original, and have been very impressed with it. Right now, I am using Siebenthal and the Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek as my two go-to grammars. In German, Siebenthal's explanations are clear and precise, and he gives lots of excellent examples. I'm curious about how literal...

Re: Declension of foreign names --- Judith 2:24

The Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible confirms what Barry said, adding that other manuscripts use different names. Abron ay′bruhn (Αβρωνα; some MSS Χεβρων or Χευρων). A river of uncertain location mentioned in Jdt. 2:24 (KJV, “Arbonai”). Some identify it with the HABOR, a tributary of the EUPHRATE...

Re: New Greek Teacher

I appreciate and agree with Barry's responses. Let me respond to this part: I might be rustling some jimmies with this question: but how much value is added to New Testament interpretation by reviving Koine and turning it into an anachronistic living language usable only by the rare folk who care to...

Re: New Greek Teacher

Adam, honestly, you are already doing a great deal that's right, and I think both you and your students will benefit. Doctor docendo discit! A couple of general principles: 1) Metalanguage discussion aside, the more your students and you engage in the Greek without English intervening the better. T...
