Re: οἰκεῖος vs. συγγενής? οἰκία vs. συγγένεια

Yes, indeed a good point. I think the only threshold I need to meet for what I am writing is that the distinction we outlined above could be one that an ancient Greek speaker would have conceivably made, even if he didn't always use it that way or if his friends used it a bit differently, etc. In ot...

Re: οἰκεῖος vs. συγγενής? οἰκία vs. συγγένεια

οἰκεῖος vs. συγγενής? οἰκία vs. συγγένεια

Re: Martyrdom of Polycarp animated film in Koine Greek (with subtitles)

Thank you very much for the feedback! That's encouraging.

Martyrdom of Polycarp animated film in Koine Greek (with subtitles)

I thought I would share my animated film of the Martyrdom of Polycarp in Koine Greek. It has subtitles so it is a great way to practice if you are not used to hearing Greek:

English to Koine Greek Lexicon

Re: Intro - David Wyman

Welcome David!

I have some contacts at or associated with SBTS and also have a good friend who may be coming soon to do a PhD (who does communicative Greek!).

I would be happy to help in any way that I can with the group you are starting!

I am really excited to announce that next month (early next month) I am planning on releasing the first (that I'm aware of) Koine Greek animated mini-film based verbatim on an ancient Greek text (23 minutes in length). I have more to say here along with a trailer: https://www.kainediatheke.com/blog/...
