Re: Koine Greek Chat webpage

χαιρε, πως εχεις;

Is the webpage ready yet? I like the chat idea. Not a fast typist, but am willing to try.

Re: Learning Methods: Memorization of passages

Χαίρετε υμιν πάντα, Ι found the Hoffman method fascinating and may try it too. Let me mention an alternate method of memorization that is helping me. I've started memorizing selected Psalms, focusing on the Messianic Psalms and selected others (e.g., 19, 23,139, and portions of 119; numbering is the...

Re: Where to begin...

Hi Jonathan, Here are the links to the sites I mentioned: If you are on a Windows computer and have Flash Player, you can listen to the LXX online as recorded by a modern Greek speaker at the site http://www.vivlos.net . Click on the button near the top of the page that says Ακούστε την Παιλαιά Διαθ...

Re: Paul Nitz: Communicative Greek in Malawi

Χαιρε, ω φιλε Σαυλε! Thanks so much for sharing your experiences. I'm not a Greek teacher but am always interested in learning more about communicative approaches to learning Greek, as I am continuing slowly to add those to my own self study. I have seen a couple of your videos you shared on Google ...

Re: Audio of Revelation?

This is super awesome! How close is this text to NA28 / UBS5? Or is it more close to a "reconstructed" KJV? It is a Byzantine-type text, so would be closer to a Majority Text edition such as Robertson-Pierpoint. Another great Koine NT audio set is that of John Simon. See a review at our own Louis S...

Re: κύπτειν "bend down" spine or knees?

Carl, of course you are right. I momentarily forgot that we don't deal with textual criticism here. μεταμελομαι, ω φιλοι. And apologies to you, Stephen, as well.

Re: κύπτειν "bend down" spine or knees?

I have an adendum for my post. Was Jesus standing or sitting when he leant down or leant forward to write on the ground? Neither, since the story is not part of the authentic text of John. There is no Greek manuscript evidence for it before the 5th century, and we have MSS of John that go back at l...

Re: Measuring Interest in Basic Greek Composition

I certainly understand why some Greek professors might not want to reveal their identities. Not everyone in academia is as humble as Daniel Streett, for instance. And likely not all administrations are sold on applying living language techniques to learning ancient Greek. But even though we might ha...

Re: Measuring Interest in Basic Greek Composition

Jonathan, definitely add me to your list of participants. Except for not having hung out on existing sites where composition is going on (Textkit and ΣΧΟΛΗ--although I have written very little in Greek there), I definitely meet the qualifications of having very basic and not so good composition skil...
