Re: First 1000 Words in Koine Greek

I really liked the idea of this when I read it on Daniel Street's blog and I enjoy the pictures so far. But I think that when there is only one main thrust given that they loose some of the immersive qualities that the 1000 word books have with their full scenes with many objects. For instance the i...

Greek Cursive

I hope that this is the correct place for this query and if it isn't that the moderators will move it. Is there a standard connected cursive for Greek writing like there is in English or Russian? If so can someone direct me toward a good resource for learning it. Does anyone know the modern Greek wo...

First Person Imperative

If the imperative tense has only second and third person forms then how does one give oneself a command? For instance, I recall when I was kid that we would pull our trampoline up next to the elm tree in our side yard so that we could climb the tree and jump to the trampoline. Being afraid of height...

Re: BDAG 2nd Edition v. 3rd Edition

I agree completely with Carl on Autenrieth. I have a copy of Autenrieth from the public domain. It was one I was considering printing for myself (I work for a printer). The version is from either late 19th C. or early 20th. The version on Amazon appears to be the same edition. Does anyone know if t...

Re: BDAG 2nd Edition v. 3rd Edition

That is very helpful. This is a little OT but do you know off hand any free/cheap Attic/Homeric lexicons of quality?

BDAG 2nd Edition v. 3rd Edition

Greekers- Until today I had been using Abbott-Smith's Manual Lexicon of NT Greek which can be found free on Google Books. For all of my intents and purposes it has served perfectly well, but the BDAG, from comments here and elsewhere, seems to be the mother of all Greek lexicons like the OED for Gre...

Re: Learning Greek on one's own

Susan- I Greek on my own. I have been working through two books, one an inductive approach through John's Gospel, the other Machen's NT Greek for Beginners. I am about halfway through the former, a quarter through the latter. Do you find that you learned as much in the classroom after you had worked...

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 w...

I have only been studying Greek, and entire on my own, for a few months, maybe six months. I am working through William Rainey Harper's New Testament Method (On G...
