Re: βαπτίζω with prepositions

I will note that Everett Ferguson's Baptism in the Early Church also covers this issue in the first chapter, though the book itself is not strictly focused on linguistics. [ Gary - I fixed the formatting of this post. The software does not recognize HTML, but BBCode is somewhat similar. Try to previ...

What Greek software is still unmade?

Since I find myself unable to get a job teaching Greek (lacking a degree tends to have that difficulty), I am taking up computer programming as a breadwinning skill.

Giving a nod to νεύω: nonverbal communication

I am curious what we can know (or reasonably guess) about the nonverbal body language used by the ancients. As I was reading through the LSJ one day I came across the entry for ανανευω: to throw the head back, in token of denial (which we express by shaking the head}, Horn., Hdt., etc* 2. c. acc, re...

Re: More Songs in Ancient Greek: "You Are Holy"

Thank you! I saw that version about a day before I posted mine. Mine's been around for about six weeks, but I haven't posted it online due to not understanding copyright matters. But since others feel safe posting and citing educational purposes as fair use, that works for me. I feel mine is grammat...

Hello! I hail from the United States. Thus far, I've taken three years of traditional seminary courses in biblical Greek, yet I've supplemented that with five years of training on my own since then. Although I've somewhat internalized an Erasmian pronunciation, I'll give it παση σπουδη to break myse...
