Re: Replying to a post

This is a question about replying to someone's post (forgive me if I am dim). I introduced myself in the Introductions section. Two people replied (Hofstetter and Jones) and welcomed me, and I want to reply to each of them. All I can see is POSTREPLY at the very top of the three posts, and POSTREPL...

Re: Patrick Maxwell

Greetings, Patrick, and welcome. I remember both those stories well, and with regard to Brown, greatly admired him but was glad I had the classroom context for my own studies. Old and retired you may be, but fresh and young when it comes to Greek. Feel free to jump into any discussion and ask any qu...

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...
