Re: Answer Key to Machen

I agree that Athenaze is an excellent teaching resource. I would only supplement it with a careful study of NYU’s strategy for teaching a year of Greek in a ten-week summer session. Do you have details on this program? What books do they use? Can it be done independently? Intensive is a better desc...

Re: Answer Key to Machen

So - with objections noted about the "clunker" Machen - recommend another. As I mentioned above I taught out of "classic" Machen for 4 years at WTS. It was a fairly comfortable fit at the time, since it was similar to my beginning Greek text in College, Crosby & Schaeffer. But even then I didn't li...

Re: Septuagint Commentary Series - Isaiah (21-Oct-2020)

A new volume in the Septuagint commentary series from Brill is coming out. I have their Genesis commentary and they do a great job discussing the Hebrew background behind some of the translations. They also deal nicely with the Greek grammar on its own terms. It is Brill who publish these though, s...

Doesn't this happen on Zoom daily with all the Greek and Hebrew reading groups popping up all over the place? ;)

Senior Scholars Discussing the Odyssey

Senior scholars reading the Odyssey from the Greek (Gregory Nagy, Douglas Frame and Leonard Muellner). What impresses me is the easy collegiality and the fact that they are having fun with the text. Apparently there is a series of these which you can access easily from the video. https://www.youtube...

Re: Luke 22:20--What is being poured out?

ἐκχυννόμενον. Pres pass ptc neut nom sg ἐκχέω (attributive, with τὸ, modifying ποτήριον). After noting the neat parallel that τὸ ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν ἐκχυννόμενον forms with τὸ ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν διδόμενον in verse 19, Nolland (3:1054) argues that “while some have tried to make grammatical sense of this situation, it ...

Re: Dynamic Syntax

I recently came across Dynamic Syntax in one of my books and have started to read on this / download journal articles and buy books. Does anyone know of any work applying this to Koine/classical Greek? It looks interesting as a cross-over with my relevance theory interests. The basic principle as f...
