Re: In that Day

I wonder if usage of ‘In’ vs ‘on’ might hen an attempt to communicate a subtlety different meaning. I.e. on that day. Vs in those days. (Day referring to a specific day or a general era)

Database of Categorisation of verbs according to (for example) Wallace?

Is there such a thing as a database that catalogues verbs across the New Testament. So you can ask things like 'How many many Perfects are "Aoristic Perfects"'

I know various features of verbs are debatable, but some form of database/catalogue might just be more useful than none at all 😄

Re: Beginner grammar in Accordance vs. paper

Rodney Decker's Reading Koine Greek , as well as Mounce's works are available in Accordance. They cost quite a bit more there than in print, but I'm wondering if it is worth it. I prefer physical books, however for practical purposes, I almost always go digital, it means I always have the books wit...

History of εις and εν

I recall reading some time ago (probably in a commentary) about a transition or confusion between these two prepositions. It came up in discussion today following our first year greek class on prepositions, so I decided to research a little more about this to refresh my memory. The main dictionaries...

Re: Understanding copyright of personal greek translation work?

This is why I am strongly for the idea of an online collaborative project that works to build up the Greek New Testament again from scratch using data from original manuscripts. I imagine we could have some form of interface where we see the raw data in an interlinear type of format, and allow trust...

Re: Hoping for real reading proficiency

There is a world of difference and reading outloud will NOT lead to true reading proficiency or internalization of a language. Sorry, humans arn't programed that way. Real language use for communication is VITAL. Which is why I am sad there is not enough demand for online/live koine/reconstructed c...

Re: Understanding copyright of personal greek translation work?

Stanley Porter writes an interesting article in his recent book "Linguistic Analysis of the Greek new Testament", its chapter 1, titled "Who owns the Greek Text of the New Testament? Issues that Promote and Hinder Further Study"

What is the difference between ἐδύνατο and ἠδύνατο?

It is used both ways in Mark 6, BDAG seems to imply the correct form for the imperfect uses the η, however accordance tags both as 3rd person singular imperfect. Mark 6:5 καὶ οὐκ ἐδύνατο ⸂ἐκεῖ ποιῆσαι οὐδεμίαν δύναμιν⸃, εἰ μὴ ὀλίγοις ἀρρώστοις ἐπιθεὶς τὰς χεῖρας ἐθεράπευσεν. Mark 6:19 ἡ δὲ Ἡρῳδιὰς ἐ...
