Re: Pastor and student

In general, ancient texts were not meant be read once, but over and over, with much reflection on what the author is trying to communicate. What connections are suggested even by a linear reading of the text? Mark is not just writing a stand alone piece. He is writing in an already existing body of...

Re: Beginning...again

Carl Conrad has a grammatical supplement to the JACT Reading Greek course that provides lengthier explanations. I am not 100% sure to which edition it is keyed but I suspect that it is to the current (2nd ??) edition.

τὴν θεὸν at Acts 19.37 is interesting.

Re: Hello - return to bgreek

Oh yes... ;-)

I know that what I'll be doing in my teaching won't quite (!) satisfy some folk - but I think I can learn lots from them, even if we can't replicate what they've achieved. With my change of focus I'm reading more of the stuff on pedagogy here and it's already helpful.

Bryant, Clay, Barry

If you're willing to sign up for Lexham press newsletter then you can have a free copy of Baugh's ECC as a pdf or as a free Logos book. I'm a dabbler in these things but I found his comments on cola in the introduction fascinating.

Hello - return to bgreek

Hello again, Returning to B-greek after a break of a year or two, and really since my last sojourn was fairly brief, it's been years. New context: now I'm an instructor in New Testament at a small seminary in South East Asia. Unexpected role: I'm going to teach Greek! Not something I had especially ...

Re: Interacting with a text without verse numbers marked

Jeffery right about the other software too. It's easy to suppress the referencing system entirely in accordance also. Like Jeffery I've also frequently led bible studies in english with all the "paratext" stripped out. It helps folk to get beyond textual "atomism". In the early years of formal instr...

Re: ...Nestle-Aland, UBS, or something else...?

If I may put in my 2c. If you can get a free copy of the Greek NT on your computer do learn how to be able to copy and paste it into various formats (word documents, emails, web pages like this) and learn how to be able to type it. There are high quality portable and free options out there! I found ...
