Re: Peter Rabbit in Koine Greek

Thanks for sharing this! Joey and I (the translators) are excited to finally see it in print. It was a bit of an ordeal to find a publisher willing to pay royalties to Penguin Random House for the use of Peter Rabbit. As far as additional information goes, you might be encouraged to know John A. L....

Re: Peter Rabbit in Koine Greek

I was hoping that the website would have some details, but alas! It will be interesting to see how they go about it. I personally would have mined Aesop's Fables for vocabulary and expressions.

Nathaniel, thanks for explanation. I now see much better what you are getting at.

Re: Logos 8 Academic Professional

I am about five years in reading/learning NT Greek. I have the Nestle Greek 1904 Text and morphology in an excel file which I have looked at over time and analysized etc, with the goal of presenting the text with other related information, in a form which might be more conducive for reading in a gr...

Re: Same noun different gender / declension

You mean like ἀδελφός and ἀδελφή? Same root, different morphology, different referent, so not the same word, though closely related. In Latin you have fīlius, son, and fīlia, daughter. Invariably a Latin student will confuse them translating one as the other, to which I will say something like, "No,...

Re: What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12?

I agree with Bill on this one -- in doesn't quite make the best sense out of ἐν in the English context. "By" is the best English gloss. For ζάω not so much conduct one's life or retain one's live, as simply to live = be alive = have life. There is more than one way to express each of the previous co...

Re: 2 Cor 5:21 anarthrous nouns

I separated your post from the old thread and moved it here in the hopes that it would get better attention. I'll let someone else talk about why they may be anarthrous, but it makes the point rhetorically stronger to use the nouns instead of adjectives. The adjectives would, I think, also mean some...

Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

Next we will look at Stéphanie Bakker's study, The Noun Phrase in Ancient Greek: A Functional Analysis of the Order and Articulation of NP Constituents in Herodotus , AMCP 15 (Leiden: Brill, 2009). Though not a grammar, it is a grammatical study of the ancient Greek noun phrase, and in my opinion, ...

Re: Catena in Marcum: ὥσπερ οὖν

The problem might be ἀναχώρησις. Here it means something like "an isolated place," hence "They abyss is a place isolated from this world, therefore the demons think it's not a good idea to be sent outside the earth, where there are no people, into the outer darkness..." No. That is not problem. It ...

Re: Catena in Marcum: ὥσπερ οὖν

Here is the text from page 316, lines 26 through page 317 line 2 with the part of most interest highlighted: “Καὶ παρεκάλει αὐτὸν πολλὰ, ἵνα μὴ ἀποστείλῃ αὐτοὺς ἔξω τῆς “χώρας,” ἢ εἰς τὴν ἄβυσσον ἀπελθεῖν, ὥς φησιν ὁ Λουκᾶς. ἡ γὰρ ἄβυσσος ἀναχώρησίς ἐστι τούτου τοῦ κόσμου. ἀξιοῦσι τοίνυν οἱ δαίμονε...
