Re: Form of the Word Πολύς in Matthew 24:12

Πολλῶν is not a comparative form. The comparative of πολύς is the various permutations of πλείων, πλέων (used 46x in the NT, including 6x in Matt., according to NA28 Accordance module). However, simply because it is not a comparative form does not mean it can't be used to express a comparative (or e...

Re: εὐθύς in Mark

Beware of Academia also - it appears that anyone can post anything.
I concur that the results on Academia can be very uneven. There is, though, a great deal of high quality work available there. The internal search engine, at least what is available for free, is certainly not awe-inspiring though.

Ancient Greek Graphic Novel

I just found some graphic novels of various Ancient Greek stories by Magda van Tilburg. This link is to a section from Herodotus (History Book II.121) called "the smart thief": https://booxalive.nl/de-slimme-dief/. It looks like there are four Greek stories available for free to read!

Re: Luther's xlation of αιων/αιωνιος

There are over a hundred instances of the word αιων in the GNT, but one that still reads "world" in the NRSV is Romans 12.2, καὶ μὴ συσχηματίζεσθε τῷ αἰῶνι τούτῳ ἀλλὰ μεταμορφοῦσθε τῇ ἀνακαινώσει τοῦ νοός ὑμῶν, εἰς τὸ δοκιμάζειν ὑμᾶς τί τὸ θέλημα τοῦ θεοῦ τὸ ἀγαθὸν καὶ εὐάρεστον καὶ τέλει...

Re: Luther's xlation of αιων/αιωνιος

1. As one of the site admins is sure to tell you at some point, we use actual names on this forum, not pseudonyms, so it would be good to change that. 2. Do you have a particular passage or passages in mind on your question about Luther? In Ewigkeit makes as much sense as "into the ages" a...

Re: Modern Greek First?

Thanks for sharing this video! Certainly will have cause to share it with other people in the future as this is such a common question. The one thing I have noticed as I study Modern Greek is that it has given me a boost in my word-reading speed. Since Modern Greek is spoken blazingly fast (at least...

Re: Translation of Phil. 3.16

I'll probably sign off of this discussion after this, as I'm a bit confused what you are actually trying to assert at this point. Even your German translation is treating the syntax of Phil. 3.16 as different from the examples you pull from TLG where φθάνω + infinitive is "idiomatic" (the ...
