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: First time visit

Thank you so much, I finally also received a reply from my Professor. I appreciate you timely response. I guess it is obvious I am totally new, but also committed to learn. Once again, thank you for your kindness. Belinda Guerrero Dear Belinda, Welcome to B-Greek in case your professor didn't go in...

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...

Re: Recommend papyri for teaching?

I may have the opportunity to teach a session at a NT Greek refresher course ("I kinda learnt Greek at seminary 25 years ago and haven't really used it since") and I'd like to give the students some papyri to read, to give them a taste of "real-world" Koine. Could anyone suggest some materials that...

Ever deeper, ever deeper goes a journey with Cyril and Nestorius as traveling companions. Thanks for the articles Stirling. James, I had indeed not seen the context at all...I had captured the text on TLG while running a search on biazetai. I guess our writer must have been a pseudo A. Old Athanasi...

Re: ἄρτι vs νῦν

My gut feeling (and it's only that, I haven't the time to do a proper search right now) is that ἄρτι can carry a sense of "up until now", and νῦν can carry a sense of "now, at this moment" Shirley R. How do you read ἕως ἄρτι? ἕως ἄρτι - "up until now" - but those are only 'gut feelings' from how I'...

Re: Conjugation of φέρω: ἤνεγκαν, ἠνέχθη, etc?

Some of the forms of φέρω seem totally unrelated to φέρω in just about every visual way. Is there any way to explain why φέρω looks so different in these forms? If you need some help with similar verbs, check out the chapters of the Online Textbook http://www.drshirley.org/greek/textbook02/chapter2...
