Audio of Philippians chapter 1 in Koine

As I mentioned in another thread, I'm trying to record some audio with a first-century Koine pronunciation. It's a bit different from Buth's scheme, though those who use Buth's scheme won't have trouble understanding it (hopefully). I wasn't sure where to post this so I'm sharing this here with anyo...

Audio of Philemon in Koine

I am attempting to switch over to a Koine (1st-2nd c. CE) pronunciation of Koine Greek from a restored Classical scheme. I've used Buth's books in the past so the pronunciation is not entirely new for me. Here's my attempt at reading Philemon from the SBLGNT: https://archive.org/details/philemon_201...

Re: Classical Greek or Latin after Koine for NT studies?

A bigger picture may be needed. Is "three semesters of German" sufficient for a German literature prof or historical researcher? My simple advice, given freely for 40 years now, is by all means become fluent in Hebrew before doing a PhD. The academy doesn't require this? So we are much the poorer. ...

Re: Classical Greek or Latin after Koine for NT studies?

As a current M.Div student at a seminary interested in applying for New Testament (NT) PhD programs, which is more important and would make me potentially more competitive - Latin or Classical Greek? Of the two, Latin will make you more attractive because you already have some Greek. I don't know o...

I should've mentioned I have taken 3 semesters of Biblical Hebrew and also one semester of Biblical Aramaic.

Classical Greek or Latin after Koine for NT studies?

As a current M.Div student at a seminary interested in applying for New Testament (NT) PhD programs, which is more important and would make me potentially more competitive - Latin or Classical Greek? I've had 3 semesters of Koine Greek in seminary, where we only looked at biblical texts. I've taken ...
