Re: Beginner grammar in Accordance vs. paper

I'm at step 0 and have been doing some research into which beginner/introductory grammar to start with. 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 realize this is...

Re: Rendering imperfective into English (an English question?)

Logically he started teaching when he hadn't been teaching before, but there's no particular focus on the beginning in these examples. I think we may need to be precise about what kind of beginning is supposed to meant. For example, Hoffmann-Siebenthal § 198e (who end up rejecting the category) dis...

Re: Requirements for Baptism

I think you may be looking for Chapter 16 of the Apostolic Tradition . Does anyone have the Greek handy? A concubine, who is a slave and has reared her children and has been faithful to her master alone, may become a hearer; but if she has failed in these matters she must be rejected. If a man has ...

Requirements for Baptism

I'm teaching a course on Church History next semester, and some of the Early Church documents are part of it. I remember reading a Greek text some time ago which discussed Baptism, and the requirements for candidates, and which said that it was OK to baptise a prostitute because she was a slave-girl...

Re: "We have no such custom" as being contentious???

According to Brad Price, in 1 Cor 11:16 “the word contentious is a masculine adjective in the nominative case and the word custom is a feminine noun in the accusative case. If these words belonged together, there would be grammatical agreement in both gender (masculine/ feminine) and case (nominati...

Re: A Struggling Beginner

I've been self-studying New-Testament Greek for about a month now, and I could really use help translating some of the Greek sentences in the book I'm using. If that's the kind of help I might get here, then I think I've come to the right place. :D Ἑταῖρε, βοήθει μοι Dear Jagella, Welcome to B-Gree...

Re: Variations of Vocabulary

I have been studying 1 Corinthians 1 for a while (specifically v.26-31). I have been baffled by the alternate use of the word "Moros" (μωρός) in simple translations but the variant "Mora" (μωρά) is sometimes used. Is there a significance to this? If so, what is it? What is the difference between th...
