Recommendation for a history of the Greek language

Hi ya, Could anyone recommend a decent history of the Greek language ? Colvin's on Ancient Greek looks really good though pricey. I'm trying to get a decent sketch, in some detail, of Greek from inception (say 1000 BC, if that is indeed inception) to modern times. Some grammars contain some of this ...

Chronology of Ancient Greek works

Hi ya, I realize this isn't a biblical greek question per se, but perhaps I'll be given a pass on that :) Could anyone point me to a chronology of works in Greek from Homeric times to at least the early CE ? It should be pretty comprehensive if possible. I could take a few lexica (LSJ, BDAG) and ext...

Re: φανεροω in Eph 5:13

Hello everyone! First, I copied this text of Eph. 5:13 from a web page: τὰ δὲ πάντα ἐλεγχόμενα ὑπὸ τοῦ φωτὸς φανεροῦται, πᾶν γὰρ τὸ φανερούμενον φῶς ἐστιν. Then I used a Greek font on my phone to do this: τὰ δὲ πάντα ἐλεγχόμενα ὑπὸ τοῦ φωτὸς φανεροῦται, πᾶν γὰρ τὸ φανερούμενον φῶς ἐστιν. Would some...

Re: Luke 6:27 εχθρους

Daniel, thank You for the answer. But this β-item in BDAG belongs to the b-part of the lemma, where BDAG addresses the substantival meaning of εχθρος; there I understand the gen. as an object-genitive, because in fact the substantival meaning is some in-between: enemy = some one you hate and/or som...

Re: Luke 6:27 εχθρους

Thanks Barry, the semantic part of εχθροσ is clear; εχθρουσ υμων ??? would υμων turn into an Object or into a Subject in the explanation: "The ones that hate you" or "The ones you hate" or are both possible? Regards Jean In some haste, but this is what BDAG has to say, noting this passage in partic...

Re: θύρα in Acts 3:2

I notice that all translations translate θύρα τοῦ ἱεροῦ as "gate" rather than door. It had me wondering why this option was chosen? Is it due to historical understanding of the structure of the temple? My mental image of a "gate" does not align with what I imagine would have been at the entrance of...
