Re: A papyrus for linguistic fun and profit...

Here is another, short and sweet, and a bit like listening in to one end of a telephone conversation. 1 Θαεισοῦς Συρᾶτι τῇ 2 μητρί. γίνωσκε ὅτι 3 Σέλευκος ἐλθὼν 4 ὧδε πέφευγε. 5 μὴ σκ{λ}ύλλε ἑα- 6 τὴν ἐνπῆναι. 7 προσδέχου ἰς τὸν 8 ἐνιαυτὸν Λου- 9 κία. γράψον μοι 10 τὴν ἡμέραν. 11 ἄσπασαι σὺ 12 Ἀμμω...

Re: Learning Everyday!

A quick search shows there has been some interest in phpbb mobile apps but the website works fine in a browser on a mobile device - I use it that way - so I suspect there hasn't been enough interest or someone available and ready to take on the dev. There are generic forum apps that are compatible w...

Curious minds want to know... which Hebrew grammar failed to satisfy you?

Re: One Greek Grammar or Many for beginners Greek

Hi Matthew, My 0.02 and likely not worth either penny :) When I started I picked a grammar and worked through it. It was a slog in a sense but you're just collecting basics. You need to get them in. Once you've got the basics you can pick up a more advanced grammar or cherry some things your basic o...

Re: John 8:25

This is of course is odd in that John uses ἐν ἀρχῇ, ἀπ' ἀρχῆς, ἐξ ἀρχῆς elsewhere. Statements that take this form are common in exegetical literature. I don't think they are valid. If you press that logic it leads to absurd results. In a small sample of someones writing what has been done elsewhere...

Re: John 8:25

I don't think we are going to add much to what centuries worth of readers have seen in this text. τὴν ἀρχήν is adverbial no matter how you cut it -- such adverbial accusatives are not uncommon in Greek, and it doesn't strike me as particularly odd as a variaton on ἐν ἀρχῇ or ἐξ ἀρχῆς. λαλῶ, practic...

John 8:25

Hi All, Ran into this : “Ἔλεγον οὖν αὐτῷ· σὺ τίς εἶ; εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς· τὴν ἀρχὴν ὅ τι καὶ λαλῶ ὑμῖν;” (Ἰωάννην 8·25 GNT28-T) https://accordance.bible/link/read/GNT28-T#John_8:25 This seems to have puzzled translators and grammarians a good bit. There are several points at issue. 1. What exactly...

Re: διηγησις - εν τη οδω

κατὰ Trenchard τίνι ὑποτακτικὸς (post-positive νομίζω;) ἐστιν, ἀλλὰ τινὶ οὐ. οὐτὸς τί, τίνα, τινάς, τινές, τίνι, τινῶν, τίς, καὶ τισί(ν) ἀναγράφει, ἀλλʹ οὐκ ἄλλο. Δανιήλ. But that's exactly wrong. The interrogative τίς κτλ. is particularly not postpositive, while the indefinite τὶς κτλ. is. Thus, o...
