Re: Quoting bible verse in biblical greek

You might just follow the convention of Aland in the NTG 28, put the citation either into bold face or italics.

Bibliotheca Patrum Ecclesiae Catholicae, Vol. 5 contains Philippians, Colossians and Thessalonians. ...

Fifth rev. ed., 1938. Often reprinted. Part I (pp. 1-24) is a review of English grammar, something that most American s...

Re: Homeric, Classical, Koine...whats the REAL difference?

You've already had several different answers to your question. I could chime in with my own experience of studying New Testament Koine in my first year of academic Greek, moving on to read the Iliad of Homer in my second year, and then to read Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics in my third year -- but ...

Re: The perceived authority, role and difficulty of Greek

I agree with Carl Conrad on this. Usually there ks an over generalization and a lack of true insight into how language operates. Meaning occurs in sentences, not in individual words. It is usually individual words that get a comment

Re: Trivia: In what year NT canon?

In what year was the NT canon universally accepted by a Council? When was the earliest mention of the NT canon as it now stands? Supplementary question: Which apocalypse is mentioned in the Muratorian fragment as being fit to read in church, but is now not accepted? I think these questions are inte...

Re: διοπετής and word-formation

Say I have a word like διοπετής which means "Zeus-fallen" or "fallen from Zeus." -πετής is related to the verb πίπτω, but how would you exactly describe its relationship? At the least, it appears to be a suffix derived from πίπτω, but can anything else be said of it? There appears to be an adjectiv...

Re: Matthew 6:13 καὶ μὴ εἰσενέγκῃς ἡμᾶς εἰς πειρασμόν

Which implies that God might actually lead us into temptation? Or perhaps testing ... Or am I reading something into this that is not there? This is getting a little too outside my comfort zone, but Jeffrey Gibson has written a paper on this very topic here: http://www.markgoodacre.org/synoptic-l/g...
