Re: Θεός

Barry, Here is the footnote after the phrase "predicative term." I'm not sure it is any more helpful in answering the question. I posted the TDNT entry more as informational than explanatory and also to indicate Harris' source. Sorry for the confusion. And thank you so much for your participation i...

Re: Θεός

With a little help from my fiends (Sounds Beatle-ish in my ears.) I've learned that evidently Harris got the idea that θεός was originally a predicative term from TDNT A. The Greek Concept of God. 1. θεός in the Usage of Secular Gk. The question of the etym. of θεός has never been solved. It can th...

Re: Θεός

The rest of his comments are as follows: "Sometimes the term (with or without the article) refers to deity in general; that is, the divine power and qualities that are the common possession of all gods. W. H. S. Jones observes (253) that the articular ο θεός (like ο άνθρωπος, "mankind") is "very of...

Re: E.A. Sophocles

On the positive side, I like it because Sophocles doesn't frequently compare Greek grammar to Latin - frequent references to Latin are a chore rather than an aid for me, becuase I double majored in Greek and Modern Greek (rather than Latin). I particularly like the practice of capitalising "obsolet...

Re: E.A. Sophocles

If it means anything in terms of expressing my opinion of Sophocles' lexicon, I can just say that I was the one who wrote the marketing copy. It's still marketing-speak, but its still my opinion. The entries are small and don't provide a lot of information, but there are plenty of words in Sophocle...

Re: E.A. Sophocles

I'd be interested anyone's opinion who is actually familiar with it. Thinking about it, you were probably referring to the software that you saw on offer rather than the lexicon per se . My comments were about the lexicon in its print form. I actually have no exprience with personal Bible Study aid...

Re: English translation of phonetic koine greek word exomolo

Can anyone out there point me in the right direction of the English definition of this nominative, feminine, noun? In the future, Don, please use an actual Unicode Greek font and also cite some of the context in which the word appears, or that very least a reference where it can be found. That help...

E.A. Sophocles

Has anyone had any experience for this? Logos is offering the E.A. Sophocles collection at low bid. Their marketing makes it sound wonderful, but I'd be interested anyone's opinion who is actually familiar with it.

Incidentally, here is a good scan of the Nestle 1904: http://archive.org/details/biblentgreektext00nestuoft But the internet reviewers sure make a lot of weird comments about this text ;=> It looks like the reviews were hijacked by militant representatives of the King James Version Only crowd.
