Re: New Greek Teacher

Welcome, Adam! I would second Barry's advice about reading Greek yourself, as much as possible. Include some Septuagint reading and Apostolic Fathers after you feel comfortable reading the GNT. And, to best help your students, find a way of introducing them to authentic Greek readings, at least simp...

Re: Books omitted from LXX

I agree with Barry. In a similar vein, we correctly speak of "Jerome's Vulgate" even though we're aware (or become aware) that he is not responsible for all of the final product. But he is responsible for most of it, so it fits to attribute the Vulgate to him.

Re: John 1:18 and Exodus 3:14 LXX

Barry, do you have any particular Philo passages in mind here? He's on my Greek to read list, but I haven't gotten to him yet.

I've done a small amount of reading on this topic over the years and find it fascinating, particularly as I'm translating John.

Oh well. Maybe in the next update. Meanwhile, it will still be useful.

Re: Frequency Lists

Barry, do you know if the generator can do phrasal searches, e.g., for idioms?

Re: Taxonomy for hierarchy in corpus linguistics

I agree with using Septuagint that way. Just like I'm fine with using the term "Jerome's Vulgate" even though I'm aware he did not produce all of it--there were portions of the previous Old Latin he didn't revise, etc. We all know what is meant in such cases. And if we don't, we can ask for clarific...

Re: Complete Josephus

Thanks for the replies. It was a year or so ago, and I don't recall which Logos Basic version it was. It could be that I didn't spend enough time looking at the available options and wrongly concluded that the interlinears were the only original language Bibles offered. I'll look into it further now...

Re: Complete Josephus

Does anybody know if this module and the Duke Papyri set mentioned recently work with the free version of Logos? My budget doesn't permit me to get the full version. I decided not to get the free version earlier when I found that the only original language Bible texts it supports are interlinears. B...

Re: English-Koine Greek Lexicon

χαιρετε, Φριδερικε και γυναι σου! Friedrich, there is an occasional Ancient Greek chat on Facebook although I haven't tried it. I'll look up the details and send you a PM. One of our fellow B-Greekers and I chat in Koine by typing on Google Hangouts about once a month. I would be glad to do that wit...
