Re: My New Blog-Ancient Language Aids, Bible Studies, κτλ

Οf course I should have written εταιροι, not ετεροι. As it happens, I pronounce both ε, αι as ε.

Re: ἀποστασία

And as much as I love Latin, it still bugs me to see Greek works listed with no Greek titles!
Anybody else feel that way? (Yes, I understand the historical reasons why they are done that way, but that doesn't make it valid.)

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 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?
