Machen & "the language of the street."

Date: Sun Oct 26 1997 - 15:00:27 EST

The precision and completeness with which the Koine Greek is analyzed on this
list amazes me. (As a matter of personal faith I believe the scriptures are
capable of such analysis.) Now help me here, Machen described Koine Greek as
"the language of the street." English "street talk" is not very gramatical.
 How do we know we are not stretching the point? Was there Koine grammer?
 And how do we know this grammer. Did the writers know and use excellent
grammer, or did we create a grammer to explain what they wrote?
