Re: 1st Post to the forum

By "3 noun types," I assume you mean the three declensions, right? There are more types than there are declensions. Otherwise, an excellent first post. Could you please put your name in your signature so that it will appear on all of your posts? You can do that in the control panel. Welcome to B-Gre...

Re: Relevance Theory and the Bible - a Few Resources

All right, I have to say that I disagree with Grice from the very beginning of his presentation. “Those spots mean (meant) measles.” (I) I cannot say, “Those spots meant measles, but he hadn’t got measles”... (2) I cannot argue from “Those spots mean (meant) measles” to any conclusion about “what is...

Re: Relevance Theory and the Bible - a Few Resources

I appreciate it - and the rest of the information that you're collecting here. Good to know I am not just being annoying with it! Well, I sat down and read the first two pages again and again, and it is still going over my head. I just decided that I'm going to start with Grice so that they're not ...

Re: Relevance Theory and the Bible - a Few Resources

If you mean a paper you can read in that time, give this one a bash; It’s a 2024 paper by Wilson who pioneered the theory https://www.academia.edu/22606655/Relevance_theory Thanks for posting that. I'm going to take the time now to sit and read it. I appreciate it - and the rest of the information ...

Re: How to translate ἐρχόμενος?

Can you recommend some that I can access for free online? I don't read paper books any more. Look at the Greek grammars here on Textkit . They aren't for the New Testament specifically, except for the short treatment from James Strong (which isn't a full course). I recommend that you start with Fir...

Re: How to translate ἐρχόμενος?

My formal training was in AI but interested in Biblical Greek as a hobby. More so now that I am semi-retired. Nice. Considering taking up a specific study? "Biblical Greek" is really a thing. Biblical Greek is just a limited corpus of Koiné Greek. We tend to recommend lots of reading of Greek texts...

Re: How to translate ἐρχόμενος?

Well, it is absurd for her to say that she has "always believed" that Jesus was the Messiah. That makes no sense at all, so the NLT is out. It is also generally unacceptable to translate a present participle in a completed sense. Two strikes for this translation. The third strike is the addition of ...

Re: How to translate ἐρχόμενος?

Hi, TonyChanYT. Is Tony Chan your name? Welcome to B-Greek and congrats for making your first post. Participles do not have tense of their one. It is most natural to read this as referring to the future, since the main verb of the sentence is in the present tense ( εἶ ). "You are the one doing x." I...

Re: Please help me to identify the letters in greek

The first and the thrid word are ok. The second one I was able to find it exactly the same way in this other resouce. Here is a snip with the portion of the text with that word. For the other two that's the way they are presented in the book. Can you help me with those? I have put you on moderated ...
