Re: George/'s discussion/disagreement/argument with
Carl Conrad:

Not to quell discussion or dissent, but I have learned over my couple
years on B-Greek that - to paraphrase an E.F. Hutton commercial - "When
Carl Conrad speaks, everybody listens!"

When he nixes or disagrees with a point or suggestion or "insight" I
make, I conclude it's probably pretty much a dead horse, and I don't try
to beat it anymore. When he agrees with or supports what I - a "little
Greek" - have to say or ask, I feel blessed and encouraged. Both are
good learning experiences, and I appreciate his willingness to respond
at length to any question, great or small.

Now that I've probably embarrassed him with all this praise, I'll go
back to reading the rest of the digest postings.

"Eric S. Weiss"

Be skeptical of what you are about to hear when someone who hasn't had
at least a year or two of biblical Greek and/or Hebrew says: "Now, in
the original Greek (or Hebrew) it really says (or means) ...."
