I'm for Greek!

Dear Greek F(r)iends,

I appreciate your calls for Greek-only posts. If there's anyone on
the list who likes rabbit-chasing, I'm among the most guilty.

I do wonder, however, exactly how we construct these boundaries.
If all we want are text-critical and philological comments, then I'm
less interested than if we welcome some questions like:
        - what's a parable?
        - how did ancient social and literary contexts shape the
        meaning of texts?
I'm not interested in going into methodology or theology on this list,
but I do think issues such as these are important for our Greek

Would appreciate your feedback and will submit to the larger wisdom of
the group.
