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: Back after many years.

I know a little Hebrew,
and I know a little Greek.
One owns a pizza shop,
the other sweeps the street.

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.

Re: Nestle 1904 (BFBS) in Unicode

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.

Re: Progress log

This is a log of my efforts to analyze texts, and in the process learn solid grammar and syntax. This is how I have learned to deal with ancient texts: First I underline the verbs Then I circle the words that introduce secondary sentences Then I find objects, subjects, participles etc. That is a pr...

Re: Penelope Kappa

Hi, I am a native greek speaker, and I want to focus on koine greek. My goal is not only to read the texts (which I can already with reasonable ease) but to be able to remember/learn/recognise grammar and syntax, and to develop active skills. To be able to write and compose texts. What better way t...

Re: Γινωσκωσιν at John 17:3

That the future is sometimes used is certain. E.g. Rev. 9.5 ἵνα βασανισθήσονται and 14:3 ἵνα ἀναπαήσονται are not dependent on a potential vowel, since theta-aorist subjunctives use -ωσι not -ησονται. But apparently the variant listed is present, not future. Let me suggest that the subjunctive in p...

Re: Γινωσκωσιν at John 17:3

First of all, please remember that text critical issues per se are not part of the purview of B-Greek. ἵνα with the indicative in classical Greek means "where," but that is impossible from the context here. Here it would simply be a solecism, a copyist error, based on the usage elsewhere in John and...
