different word count of new Testament and Apostolic Fathers

I know that the New Testament has 5420 different words, the Apostolic Fathers has 4296 different words. But can anyone tell me the different word count for both books combined. Thankyou. And the Apostolic Fathers I am asking about is the Michael Holmes edition.

Re: Managing Time as a Self-Taught Beginner

Actually I am reading as much greek as I can daily. I'm reading through the new testament again now, this time without using the English version as a check to my comprehension. A lot of the greek my brain is responding to in greek thought directly, a lot also my brain finds easier to translate into ...

Why do many translations say Grace upon Grace, or Grace for Grace? Can you please tell me if I wrote brothers, help me, correctly? Thanks James bell

Re: Who does their main bible reading in Greek?

The greek new testament is my daily reading. I'm reading two to three chapters daily. At two and a half years of effort, two hours a day, and having memorized all the words down to 10 times frequency or less, I must say, I have not arrived. Rather I sometimes despair of knowing greek. Somebody said ...
