Re: W.J. Hickie, Greek-English Lexicon to the NT

I like that lexicon. I used to carry a copy of it around, from the seminary library, when I was in an elementary Greek class. I liked to carry either Souter's little lexicon, or Hickie, althernating so that someone else could get to use it too. I liked them more than the Barclay Newman lexicon. Than...

Re: notes on the Greek tems in a NT

Who was Bucephalus, he had a role in carrying the Greek language, didn't he? Bucephalus (Βουκέφαλος, "ox-head") was the celebrated (coins, art) horse of Alexander the Great. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bucephalus Yes, that was what I meant, Bucephalus had a galloping big role in spreading the...

Re: notes on the Greek tems in a NT

The reason I made a query here was to get someone else's views, who are able to judge or report on the book. We don't discuss translations on B-Greek. Is there anything in scope to discuss here? I thought Leonard said he wasn't interested in the translation but in the value or usefulness of Ann Nyl...

Re: notes on the Greek tems in a NT

I just got back to where I can be online. Let me render an apology, if my query is considered to be an attack. I reckon I do have a certain amount of tone, and so at the season of Christmas, let me not tromp upon someone going about doing what they love. I did read on amazon, and on her own site as ...

notes on the Greek tems in a NT

The book I am referring to here is a translation of the New Testament(the source, she calls it. What I am inquiring about is not the translation, but the fact that Ann Nyland claims to have included many fine notes in her translation, lexicographical notes. She says she has done all of this linguist...

Re: Handbook of Greek Verbs

Is this the book that is called "Tutti Frutti"? (I think it had a title like Tutti Verbi Graeci)

Re: Greek according to Luke

It is interesting that Mr. LaSor chose the book of Acts. Thanks for the note about how you found that book to be. You had a good thorough course of introduction to Greek via LaSor, didn't you? I briefly looked at it(LaSor) years ago at seminary, it struck me how that he must have been a Bible transl...

LXX Greek

This may be the place to put this inquiry. I do not have any particular portion of the LXX to ask after, although I have been reading in the Psalms, so well as I am able to. A friend whom I have lost track of, who was a Hebrew tutor, told me that the Hebrew of the Psalms, or the Wisdom literature an...

Re: Greek according to Luke

I spoke with a fellow who was a student at Asbury University when Michael Harstad, the author of this Greek grammar, "Greek according to Luke", taught there. They used this book and the little LIddell. It sounds like it is more of an inductive study, as verses from Luke are used, and notes given as ...
