Re: The Words Συντελεία and Τέλος in Mt 24

Bill, I think they are essential synonyms, although both the Greek and Latin translations are quite interesting. However: וְהִגְבִּ֥יר בְּרִ֛ית לָרַבִּ֖ים שָׁב֣וּעַ אֶחָ֑ד וַחֲצִ֨י הַשָּׁב֜וּעַ יַשְׁבִּ֣ית׀ זֶ֣בַח וּמִנְחָ֗ה וְעַ֨ל כְּנַ֤ף שִׁקּוּצִים֙ מְשֹׁמֵ֔ם וְעַד־כָּלָה֙ וְנֶ֣חֱרָצָ֔ה תִּתַּ֖ךְ...

Re: Translating Origen's harder section

Thanks for the points of grammar I missed. The way I understand is: Φαμὲν τὸ μικρότερον περὶ αὐτοῦ λέγειν τοῦ Χριστοῦ· We say ‘the least’ is speaking of him (who is) of Christ. Is that right?. That looks right. I am still especially puzzled by the structure in (20) and have made another attempt. Do...

Re: Apocopic word forms

Don't know why anyone would want to do this, but the reason that it changes to the aspirated form is because it precedes an aspiration without and intervening letter. ΜΕΤΑ would be the correct form, and so with all of them.

Re: Online Latin / Using Greek to Learn Latin

This is obviously a bit off-topic for this forum, but I am interested in learning latin. 1. Does anyone have any favorite online resources for doing that? 2. Even better, are there any learning resources (print or online) that use greek to teach latin? Thanks! Shirley has given you some good resour...

Re: Online Latin / Using Greek to Learn Latin

Even back when I was in elementary and middle school (after the earth had cooled but before the dinosaurs), I didn't really learn any English grammar until I took Latin. And yes, it helped with Greek... :)

Re: A list of all forms of the participle?

Phillip, just google it. There are a ton of resources online. Also, practically every textbook has such charts, not only in the chapters in which the concepts are introduced, but handy appendices at the end of the book. Here is one online: https://ancientgreek.pressbooks.com/chapter/37/ and another:...

Re: 2 questions on Eph 3:14-19

I can't really give an answer to the second question -- it's more about how you conceptualize and outline the text after you understand the syntax. For the first question, if τούτου is cataphoric, what reasons are being given in what follows? Nothing, really, and so it makes much better sense for it...

Re: Translating Origen

The translation is fine, though I think προτρέπω is a strong term, "urging, impelling."

Jonathan, maybe it's something, but is strikes me that it's a scanning error of some sort.
