Schwandt - An Introduction to Biblical Greek: A Grammar with Exercises

Not that I am looking for yet more beginner grammars for Greek, but has anyone had a chance to review this one? If so, any thoughts - Logos doesn't let me see a preview of it and I am simply curious

Re: Relevance theory

Rather than create a new thread I was wondering whether anyone has had more thoughts on this? I have enjoyed Margaret Sims work on ina and hoti using relevance theory and her book “a relevant way to read”. I have also noted with interest Fantin’s incorporation of it into his book on the imperative m...

Re: Fantin - The Greek Imperative in the New Testament

Thanks for that link - interesting read. I was glad to see that it makes use of relevance theory, if only so that I can dig more into it. Since reading Margaret Sims book on ina and oti I have been slowly trying to improve my knowledge of this theory. Out of interest - I think I read somewhere that ...

Re: Fantin - The Greek Imperative in the New Testament

Concise review - glad to hear it. Thanks, just always aware that I come to these books without the danger of uncritically accepting things that may be largely viewed as inaccurate.

Fantin - The Greek Imperative in the New Testament

I am just about to start reading Joseph Fantin - The Greek Imperative Mood in the New Testament. I was wondering what the general consensus on this book is (if there is one) amongst the the scholarly community? Is there anything that I should be wary of here?

Re: What book next?

Thanks Barry, good to hear a second voice confirming what Stirling has suggested. I will add Thessalonians onto my list to start after Acts then Whilst I may have grumbled about the vocab - I am not averse to learning it. I hope to eventually reach a competency with vocab and grammar where I can rea...

Re: What book next?

Thanks for the suggestion Stirling. I think I have the Culy-Parsons handbook on paper at home so I will hunt that out and see what I can make of it. Re the vocab, I don’t like relying on lists anyway - was just hoping for something that wouldn’t give me AS much as Luke did! I use Olivetree on my mob...

Re: Καὶ ἦν διδάσκων τὸ καθʼ ἡμέραν ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ

Needless to say, the places without outnumber those with more than 4:1, plus is peculiar to the Lucian corpus :) That is of course if you don't take the apostolic fathers into account. Although, to be fair I only found one example there Ad Autol. iii. 30. Ἔτι μὴν καὶ τοὺς σεβομένους αὐτὸν ἐδίωξαν κ...

Re: Καὶ ἦν διδάσκων τὸ καθʼ ἡμέραν ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ

Thanks both for the replies A previous reply failed to post for some reason, but thanks for doing the work for me in finding the examples. I got round to logging into Logos and doing the search but you had beaten me to it. So the question then is 1. Whether there is a fundamental rule that governs t...
