Re: Rev. 1:4 ὁ ἦν not ὁ γενόμενος

Barclay (Revelation) suggested a long time ago that this was ungrammatical, but probably due to the author's emphasizing the unchangeable nature of God. It could be, but fixed rules for the details of a language is a myth created by government language committees who have the power to change the la...

Barry I went to the user control panel to modify my profile but wasn't able to change the user name.

Stephen thanks.
You can't, actually. A moderator has to do it for you.

Re: Peter Rabbit in Koine Greek

Sure! We went for a formal equivalency to the degree our vocabulary constraints allowed (GNT and LXX vocab only). Glosses are provided as reader helps for all words occurring fewer than fifty times in the NT. And we made a concerted effort to use actual idiom and constructions found in our corpus a...

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. It looks like James Tauber and Christoph Jasinski have started working on an annotated text of Aesop's Fa...

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: 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,...
