Re: Learning Greek on one's own

My recommendation, of course, for learners of Greek and/or Hebrew is to find ways of using the language for real communication and to do so at the speed of speech. There are programs and courses available. You will find them if you look hard. (Try "Koine Greek fluency". "Living Biblical Hebrew", et...

Re: 2Timothy 2:16

Terry, I think Carl has given you an excellent answer here. Let me add one encouragement – as readers of a "synchronically frozen language" :D we start out with the strong assumption that our ancient authors knew what they were doing better than we ever shall. For them, the language was a living, fl...

Re: Reading and Pronouncing Biblical Greek Authentically

Listening to your audio and looking at your pdfs of the history of the language, it almost appears as if you are wanting to suggest that there has been no change in the pronunciation of the language since the Classical period.

Matt. 5:37 ἔστω δὲ ὁ λόγος ὑμῶν ναὶ ναί, οὒ οὔ· τὸ δὲ περισσὸν τούτων ἐκ τοῦ πονηροῦ ἐστίν. Hi guys, What is it that leads some translations to translate the last part of this verse as "comes from the evil one", rather than "comes from evil"? Thanks It's the substantive use of τοῦ πονηροῦ.

Louis L Sorenson wrote:Or could ἵνα [να] be implied?

Modern is: Tι θέλετε να σας κάνω
I meant to address this point earlier. It's not unusual for ἴνα to be omitted, see Matt 20:32, Τί θέλετε ποιήσω ὑμῖν...
