Re: NT Word Study

First, apologies to Barry and others, if I upset them. It was not intended. Maybe I should be asking where on this site, forum members might share incites/examples of the greek way of life, revealed through some of the many ancient sources which are read by members here. Education and schooling, occ...

Re: NT Word Study

Probably and some would say definitely, the wrong title for this post. I have a copy of “The Precise Parallel New Testament” which has the Greek text plus seven translations. I often look up how these to compare with the Greek. Even as a novice of Greek, I can see that many of these prominent transl...

I almost always check out “Introductions” and share in the thoughts and motivation of people from around the world who are inspired to understand the NT in its original language (form...

Re: Book by book analysis.

As a first step for a book by book analysis of the Nestle Greek 1904 file obtained from - https://github.com/biblicalhumanities/Nestle1904 - I have generated an excel file for Matthew which gives a break-down in Parts Of Speech (POS) categories.

Re: Book by book analysis.

I'm coming to grips with this stuff using excel. I don't have time to learn about GIthub at the moment.
But it's looking interesting and I may have some stats soon.

Re: Book by book analysis.

Thanks Jonathan, Read this, but you may know another way. The following discussion may seem “over the top”. I realize that things are usually harder to do than you think or too hard and are not worth doing. But some or all of this may have already been done. I may “lose” a reader in this post but I ...

Book by book analysis.

My question is, can the same thing be obtained on a book by book basis for the GNT. ie An analysis for Matthew, Mark, Luke etc. I'm wondering i...

Reading in 1 john. In chapter4 the work of God in Jesus Christ is clearly stated. But in verse 10 there is the word "ilasmon" which used to describe the offering of Christ - sin offering. This word must have had significance and meaning to the ancient greeks and there should be uses of this word in ...

Re: καιρετε from Nashville, TN

Hi there Cory, Its interesting that you say you tried Greek 15 years ago and there is still an interest to learn it. That means something. I have been reading Greek for about three months. Someone has said - on this forum - that if something is important it will become clear with time but if it isn'...
