Re: Two Books on Verbal Aspect

Is that this book? The Morphology of Koine Greek As Used in the Apocalypse of St. John: A Study in Bilingualism I never heard of it, this was the closest I could find on Amazon. It seems to be out of print. Yep, that's the book. The title is deceptive because it appears to only be about the morphol...

Re: Two Books on Verbal Aspect

Hi Peter, These two books together are essentially Con Campbell's Ph.D. dissertation. They're well written, but this is not introductory material. And I'm quite sure Con has changed his views somewhat since the two volumes were published. To be honest, there are no dissertation level monographs on t...

Re: John 14:30

Mike, "no claim" is not my suggestion (I thought I made that clear). You did make it quite clear. I never thought it was your suggestion. I'm was just confused as to where it was from. I see now that Jonathan had check a few translations. Do you have a suggestion on how to render the phrase? How ab...

Re: John 14:30

The other problem/opportunity to understand this phrase is that it is providing a rationale for the first half of the sentence: οὐκέτι πολλὰ λαλήσω μεθ’ ὑμῶν, ἔρχεται **γὰρ** ὁ τοῦ κόσμου ἄρχων· καὶ ἐν ἐμοὶ οὐκ ἔχει οὐδέν, How does "no claim" give reason for not speaking much with the disciples any...

Re: Books specific to the Greek verbal system

There seems to be a good discussion about general introductory works and grammars, but I was wondering if anyone could provide a list of solid introductions to the verbal system, specifically that might clear up the confusion around the tense/aspect debate. Personally I would prefer something that ...

Re: Reading Greek beyond the basics: Saturation style

Is there a similar free site that's this convenient for Greek? What site(s) would you recommend for this, if I just want to click on something and listen, without much muss and fuss? I'd recommend: http://www.helding.net/greeklatinaudio/greek/ It's a Modern Greek pronunciation, but its quite good. ...

Re: Best textbooks (Beginning, Intermediate)

It's pretty new (published Sept. 2010), but has anyone had the opportunity to look at Porter's 'Fundamentals of New Testament Greek' and the accompanying workbook? I flipped through the workbook and really appreciated some of the exercises which went beyond the simple recognition drills of Mounce a...

Re: Funk and Goetchius

A question, though: were you saying that Goetchius and Funk used a structural linguistic approach disproved by Chomsky and others, and yet, though the approach in general may have been invalidated in some way, this particular book is, nevertheless, still useful? It's a reminder, isn't it, that some...
