Re: A Chiasm in 2 Corinthians 13:3-5?

2 προείρηκα καὶ προλέγω, ὡς παρὼν τὸ δεύτερον καὶ ἀπὼν νῦν, τοῖς προημαρτηκόσιν καὶ τοῖς λοιποῖς πᾶσιν, ὅτι ἐὰν ἔλθω εἰς τὸ πάλιν οὐ φείσομαι. 3 ἐπεὶ δοκιμὴν ζητεῖτε τοῦ ἐν ἐμοὶ λαλοῦντος χριστοῦ ὃς εἰς ὑμᾶς οὐκ ἀσθενεῖ ἀλλὰ δυνατεῖ ἐν ὑμῖν. 4 καὶ γὰρ ἐσταυρώθη ἐξ ἀσθενείας ἀλλὰ ζῇ ἐκ δυνάμεως θεοῦ...

Re: φανεροω in Eph 5:13

If φανερούμενον is nominative passive, then it seems that "whatever BECOMES visible is light" would be unavoidably correct. If it is nominative middle (deponent), then perhaps "whatever MAKES visible is light" could be correct. I'm not 100% I understood you correctly. But I believe what you think i...

The term "grammar-translation method"

The term "grammar-translation method" has been used often in this forum. I think it has even been thought that we have invented it here. But I'm just doing some random reading and found this article from EAGLL: https://www.academia.edu/40811004/ENCYCLOPEDIA_OF_ANCIENT_GREEK_LANGUAGE_AND_LINGUISTICS_...

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

I just ordered this from amazon.de. It was sold out from .com and .co.uk, and only 3 left in .de - seems to be popular, or they just had a small amount initially. Maybe there will be demand for a cheaper paperback for NT students?

At the same time I ordered The CGCG.

It's nice to have a Christmas :)

Re: Luke 2:7 - No room at the inn?

As a side note, you'll get more information about the Koine ("definitive") article in https://www.sil.org/system/files/reapdata/17/80/79/17807987582008905937674262856095982918/50670_Hoyle_ScenariosDiscourseTranslation.pdf, p. 141 ff. It can explain both "accommodation" and "a manger". Both are heare...

Re: θύρα in Acts 3:2

That's out of scope for B-Greek forum. We don't discuss the merits or decisions of translations here. By now you already know the semantic range of the Greek word. It may of course be that based on the archeological or historical knowledge the translators have chosen a word which a modern English sp...

Re: θύρα in Acts 3:2

Where is that definition from? It makes a mistake of taking English as normative, Greek as something to be explained with English glosses. Hence the mental dissonance. What if it's only something like "an entrance which can be opened and closed" and the rest is left to the context?

We outline our views on the need for a new Greek reference grammar, discuss our methodological principles, and offer some thoughts on how the book may be useful as a teaching resource.

I'm curious about how literal the English translation is.
Isn't it the forum policy that we don't discuss about accuracy of translations here?

Re: New Greek Teacher

I doubt that reading widely in Greek is an efficient way to build language in your head, unless your reading comprehension is already very good. Read small bits repeatedly and in depth until you are “preaching” them. Learn how to ask questions in Greek and pepper the text you are reading with quest...
