It seems, right from the stat, that it would be necessary to post three or four chapters of my book, Reading and Pronouncing Biblical Greek, in their entirety so that readers like you would have a clearer picture of the historical evidence upon which I base all findings. Doing so, however, would be...

Nomina Sacra

Tim Finney and I are discussing the Nomina Sacra: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nomina_sacra And we're trying to figure out what the set of words represented by Nomina Sacra have in common.

Re: Reading Greek beyond the basics: Saturation style

Re: Please critique my theory of

Would you equate the subjunctive in this case with "would"? IE: "...so that we would become..."? IE: Is "might"="would" as you read it? I think the subjunctive is a consequence of ἵνα here.

Re: Funk BIGHG

Incidentally, I would absolutely love to put together a team of people interested in working on making useful texts available, one or two at a time. Louis is leading the work on the Robertson grammar, I'm helping a little. I'd like to see us identify high-quality texts that are old enough to be free...
