Re: Koine Reading Group on Reddit

This is great stuff. I did see it and found it an interesting idea. I can't imagine signing up for a reddit account, but I will be following and reading with interest.

Re: Editors Needed for Greek Lexicon

This would be an amazing project to be involved in. Now if only I had a spare 20 hours per week. 😄

Morphology of ζαω

My dictionary, and Accordance tell me that "I live" is 'ζαω', so one would expect it to decline like the left column below. But when I look at the LXX/NT it actually declines like the list on the right: ζῶ ζῶ ζᾷς ζῇς ζᾷ ζῇ ζῶμεν ζῶμεν ζᾶτε ζῆτε ζῶσιν ζῶσιν Is this a case of "languages don't always f...

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

The high similarity between the BGB and the NA is because the BGB is a work derived from the NA, more precisely, when it agrees with the SBLGNT, replacing the text of Nestle 1904. But the BGB is not derived from the NA is it? It's derived from the Nestle 1904 which is clearly now in the public doma...

Capitalisation of διαβόλος in Ephesians 6:11

I am not sure if this question is about the Greek definite article, usage of the article in English, or lack of understanding of church tradition. 😀 πρὸς τὸ δύνασθαι ὑμᾶς στῆναι πρὸς τὰς μεθοδείας τοῦ διαβόλου· Most translations translate "the devil", but HCSB stands out in translating it as "the De...

Re: From παλαιστή to πῆχυς (Psalm 39:5, Matt 6:27, Luke 12:25)

1. Is it reasonable to detect an echo of the Psalmist’s words in this saying of Jesus, or is that merely an illusion, a mirage? I think this requires an assessment of how likely the original audience would have made the connection. Would it have been obvious to the original audience. If you can mak...

Re: BLC Living Koine Greek - word count?

I am tempted to attempt a very basic CI based audio course based on the work that you (Randall Buth) have done. Just a head's up: It takes a lot of work to get the Greek idiomatic and correct. There are people trying to do this, some are reliable, others not. But it takes quite a bit of background ...

Re: ὁ καὶ ...

A little more digging and I did find this helpful summary: Καί is a polyfunctional word in Ancient Greek that can function both as a copulative conjunction and as an additive adverb. On the one hand,it is one of the most important copulative conjunctions in Ancient Greek (see, for instance, Bonifazi...

Re: ὁ καὶ ...

It is, for the lack of a better term, "adverbial". In lexicons, this is one of the usages that gets glossed 'also' rather than 'and.' Thanks Mike, that is how it naturally read to me, but I just needed some confirmation that I wasn't getting it wrong here. Much appreciated. (I couldn't find this me...

ὁ καὶ ...

This is the first time I have come across και occurring in this position.

Code: Select all

ὁ καὶ δηλώσας ἡμῖν τὴν ὑμῶν ἀγάπην ἐν πνεύματι. (Colossians 1:8)
The sentence seems perfectly readable, however I am curious about the grammar. Is καὶ still simply acting as a coordinating conjunction?
