I rarely offer my two-cents to this list for this exact reason. I myself
originally became intersted in Greek thanks inpart to the LXX and what it
had to offer historically to both the OT and the NT. I have posted a few
questions sheepishly early on in my b-greek career, hoping that the big
B-greekers could help guide me in my littel b-greek ways, but was cordially
shunned and left to become a silent partner to musings of Conrad, Gibson and
few other regulars. Although I appreciate the forum and the interesting
dialogue I detest the snobery which seems to come out in the most simple
answer. If not as a teacher enjoying the process of teaching, perhaps as a
Christian you can enjoy the process of helping a fledgling along. I suggest
an off-list apology be issued to Grant, and a sense of gratitude be paid to
the Lord for giving you both the knowledge and the ability to share it with

Thanks for your time,
