Re: The BRIDGE Bible

Is there a reason that you don't transliterate the words in the original Greek sentences? I'm guessing that people who use this will pronounce the transliterated text and think they are reading a sentence when they are just reading a list of words as they would be found in a dictionary. If you are g...

Re: Introducing Bob Vorick

I wasn't certain of all the rules and standards here, but I am now. You are still welcome to post the links, but I'd like to try to explain a little more from my perspective. The goal of reading anything in the original is to be able to appreciate what gets lost in translation, but that requires kn...

Re: 1 Cor 6:4

Personally I'm having a hard time seeing that it could be anything other than a question. It might be helpful to list which interpretations you'd like to consider in more detail (a good critical commentary like the ICC should do this). Sure - I think there are two basic questions (see Meyer , Expos...

Re: Introducing Bob Vorick

Hi Bob - you can feel free to post the URLs, but I'd be surprised if people on this forum are going to be all that enthusiastic. Most of us are already skeptical about interlinears because they don't actually help you understand what a Greek text says, you would usually be better off using normal En...

1 Cor 6:4

I hadn't noticed this before, but some editions end 1 Cor 6:4 with a question mark, others with a period - and perhaps a degree of sarcasm (or not), and translations take significantly different views on who τοὺς ἐξουθενημένους refers to and what level of contempt is involved. Can someone help me so...

Re: Introducing Bob Vorick

The policy is basically to ask me before posting links to anything commercial. Feel free to do so in a separate thread, as Barry suggested. I'd be interested in understanding the goals - what is the value of transliterating the Greek, and what do you do to try to convey the syntax of the sentences?

Re: Convertible Propositions

Hi Shad, and welcome to B-Greek!

One bit of housekeeping: we have a user name policy, please follow the instructions at the link and we can change your user name for you.

This term comes from Dan Wallace, and Rod Decker explained it well here.

Re: Lucian of Samosata’s A True History

You can download the pdf of the Nimis/Hayes' edition that Barry mentions from their website: http://www.faenumpublishing.com/lucians-a-true-story.html I read through that with someone a couple years ago and it was some of the most entertaining Greek I've read. Read through their edition of The Ass ...
