I studied 3 semesters of Koine at Regent College in Vancouver back in the late 90’s.
Ian, I feel that because you were at Regent College in the late 90's I might have taught you. IIRC, I was the teaching assistant for Intro. Greek there in 1997-1998. But I don't remember many names!

What Greek words are translated with the phrase “as was stated”? The phrase “οὕτω τοίνυν, ὡς εἴρηται” appears to be too long for the short English phrase “as was stated.”
ὡς εἴρηται.
οὕτω and τοίνυν are like English "thus"

I just heard of this audio Septuagint: http://www.bible.is/GRKAVS/Gen/1/N
I just tried to access this link and it's broken. Did anyone here download the files while they were available?

Re: Help on a text from St John Damascene

what does it really mean this term which is used by St. John Damascene : "προβολεύς " in his book on the Orthodox Faith. Αυτός μεν ουν εστι νούς, λόγου άβυσσος, λόγου γεννήτωρ, και δια λόγου προβολεύς εκφαντορικού Πνεύματος, και ίνα μη πολλά λέγω, ουκ έστι τω Πατρί λόγος, σοφία, δύναμις, θέλησις, ε...

Re: Use of the dative τῷ διαβόλῳ in Matthew 25:41

Jesus is appealing to an already known theology concept. I am writing an article on the Tree of Life in Enochic Literature, and as it happens I just read a similar phrase in 2 Enoch 10:4, which is not dependent on Matthew 25: "This place, Enoch, has been prepared for those who do not glorify God .....

Re: Finding Searchable Texts of Jewish Apocalyptic Literature

I could not find a Greek text of 2 Esdras in the module. The passage which I am looking for is 2 Esdras 7:113. Another passage is Testament of Moses (Assumption of Moses) 12:4. Only the first chapter of Assumption of Moses appears to be available. Do you know whether these works are included in the...

Re: Finding Searchable Texts of Jewish Apocalyptic Literature

Greek lexicons sometimes refer to the Jewish apocalyptic literature in the Greek language. Is there a searchable database which contains those writings? Yes. The full TLG includes all the ancient Greek Jewish texts. Much of this corpus is available at the Online Critical Pseudepigrapha (of which I ...

Re: Translating Athanasius

Take note of the case endings and question mark. The subject of ἔλαβεν is ὁ Θεὸς Λόγος, and the object is σάρκα. So we have God the Word taking on flesh. Not the crying but the evangelist is the subject of βιάζεταί. Could I ask my fellow B-Greekers if I have captured the sense of Athanasius' words? ...

Re: Is. 54:4 neg. particle minus after ὅτι (twice)

Notes: ὅτι is the usual reflex for כי in Greek Isaiah. Greek Isaiah tends to use ὅτι with the meaning "because" more than "that" (about twice as often). כי לא appears also in Isa 7:9; 27:11; 28:27,28; 36:14; 37:19; 38:18; 47:1,5; 52:1,12; 54:14; 55:8; 57:16. The negation does not disappear in the ot...

Re: Jeremiah 50(27): 17-20 poetry or prose?

Is greek Jeremiah 50(27): 17-20 poetry or prose? ... It turns out that identifying poetry in the Greek translations of the Hebrew Bible is not simple. To clarify, this is not a question about classical Greek poetry. It's a question about an attempt by the translator to transfer the salient features...
