Re: Zachariou - Reading and Pronouncing Biblical Greek

Strange coincidence. I stumbled across BibleMesh and have taken up their biblical languages certificate. Applied, accepted, tutor given is Dr Zachariou. I didn’t even realise he taught there when I posted this or applied. It will be nice to finally learn Greek and get a certificate that hopefully s...

However, the Cambridge Grammar is still a very good thing to have.

Re: Soon Ki Hong on the perfect tense

Though it's the most common perfect in the NT, I would just special case οἶδα and maybe some other really old perfects. They're basically linguistic fossils, and not really a good guide to the productive use of the perfect. In the colloquia, οἶδα is always rendered by a present tense in the Latin. ...

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Hi Barry, Thanks for your comment on Jerome's rendering of קרן which resulted in the horned Moses. I'm considering a blog post on that for my second Latin piece in the Ancient Language Aids category. As I don't have access to HALOT, I appreciate the citation. I will consider it along with other dat...

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Here is a translation of the passage from Perseus, by William Whiston: Manethe adds, "how this namesake of his told him that he might see the gods, if he would clear the whole country of the lepers and of the other impure people; that the king was pleased with this injunction, and got together all ...

How about this?
Josephus Against Apion Book 1 section 236:

Via Erasmeana sempiterna erit! :lol:

Sorry, just thought to inject a bit of humor (et Latine melius semper sonat).

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Well, Luke obviously wasn't writing in epic style, but especially Acts 17 suggests that he had some familiarity with classical literature. He quotes some Greek poets, but I've been thinking there are also echoes of Plato's Apology of Socrates in the Areopagus speech, as well as echoes of Aeschylus'...
