Thank you for posting that Perry. Should I understand from that that since the subject in the previous Claus is Satan, the subject and the claws under consideration now is non-optional and explains why it is explicit?
Or, Jeffrey. :lol:

Re: Abbott-Smith note on γινώσκω vs οἶδα

Stirling, I don't know if it's just by chance, but I was able with all of the instances you quoted to say "know who x is" and have the sentence make sense. I personally read γι(γ)νώσκειν as knowing someone in the sense of having a familiarity with them (which comes from experience) and οἶδα to have ...

Re: Typing Tutor for Ancient Greek

Yeah, I just started typing out Greek texts. Take out your Greek NT or LXX and start copying it onto the computer. Force yourself to find the keys. If you cannot find one, ask here. ἐν ἀρχῇ ἐποίησεν ὁ θεὸς τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν. ἡ δὲ γῆ ἦν ἀόρατος καὶ ἀκατασκεύαστος, καὶ σκότος ἐπάνω τῆς ἀβύσσου, ...

Re: A Newbie Greek Learner

@Jason Hare I have been using biblingo for Hebrew, and it definitely does present grammar. I have been using it for Hebrew and I am impressed. Jonathan Robie : That's really nice to hear. I'm glad that the app is working and is helpful. Did you get it at a discount? From what I see, it's about $300...

@Jason Hare, I'm using Biblingo, which is still in the beta testing stages.
@Christina Diggles: I'm really unfamiliar with the new app. Does it present grammar and everything? Have you considered using a traditional grammar, or will this app cover everything?

Re: Are "Yeshu" and "Yeshua" translated identically in Greek as "Jesus"?

It is common but incorrect to claim that Yeshu was an acceptable form of the name in the first century. The claim is based on ONE ossuary. All other ancient attestations are ישוע . And the one ossuary is peculiar. The name Yeshu is written right up to a border line with no spaceישו, and elsewhere o...

Re: Are "Yeshu" and "Yeshua" translated identically in Greek as "Jesus"?

Thank you for your reply! Might you be able to provide me the name of this ossuary? I know that Chrstian Arabs say Yesua' (with the glottal "ayin" that you mention is now a minority in Hebrew). The argument of my Jewish friend is that, originally, Jesus' name was pronounced as Yeshu3 (with the ayin...

Oh, and (perhaps more importantly) what grasp do you have of Greek, if any?
