Re: Texts of non biblical papyri

You've also got the first 17 issues of the Oxyrhynchus Papyri on archive.org: https://tinyurl.com/y6ds5kmb

Though you will likely find quite a few of those papyri in the volumes on papyri.info.

Re: "remember me" is unclickable

Hi Tim, I think it's something to do with the exact URL that you use. I remember having this problem, but once I changed my B-Greek bookmark to point to https://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/index.php , everything has been fine since. I believe it's if you have it without the www. it doesn't seem to ...

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

That's an absolutely fantastic film, Benjamin!

You speak clearly and not too fast. It was easily followed when I was both listening and reading the subtitles.

Also very nice that YT allows you to remove the subtitles. Be good practise for everyone :)

Re: Infinitive Subjects of ἐγένετο

Well yeah, I've certainly "jumped the gun" a bit on this one. Just done my own search in Acts, and found nothing like "indefinite-subject ἐγένετο followed by time margin (often ἐν+infinitive) followed by a finite verb (+/- conjunction for the finite verb)". The only thing close enough was one that h...

Re: Scribes don’t augment right

2. I ton of them were for any verb beginning with ευ which remained unaugmented instead of the expected ηυ, regardless of whether it was imperfect or aorist. I am not sure though whether I should view that as a conjugational feature, or whether it should be treated as an alternative spelling. It se...

Re: New Testament Greek Manuscripts, by Reuben Swanson

B-Greek forum member Alan Bunning runs https://greekcntr.org/index.htm , which is sorta like Swanson, though at the moment not nearly as many manuscripts used in the lines. I myself recently purchased Swanson's volumes on Acts, Luke, and Mark (still awaiting delivery of the final two mentioned) due ...

Re: Infinitive Subjects of ἐγένετο

I agree with what Barry said - it's likely a Septuagintism. That most of your examples are from Luke-Acts (as Barry also noted) is a good indication - it is well known that Luke was attempting to mimic Septuagint style in his compositions. I'd also say it's just impersonal: "It happened... It became...

Re: 2 Cor 5:10

You'd probably be better searching for the lemma form rather than the genitive: βῆμα. Can try Perseus Online as a start: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?l=%CE%B2%E1%BF%86%CE%BC%CE%B1&la=greek#lexicon Click on "LSJ", and you'll get the following: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc...
