Re: Why not start with modern Greek?

There is a unique continuity and unity in the Greek language, where most of the change happens between Homeric and Classical, but from that period, to the Hellenistic, Eastern Roman Empire, Under Ottoman Occupation and Modern times, all the way up to the linguistic reform in early 80’s, the language...

Re: On Conditionals in the Greek Pentateuch

Ken, I did not ask this, and the question is not for the original Old Testament. It is for the lost part of it, and the much later reconstruction. The Masoratic text IS NOT the original Hebrew, but a reconstruction. New Testament quotes from the Greek Text of the Old Testament, not from the Hebrew t...

Mark, it is not just Randall - kai oi syn aytwi - if you dig further, as John Stuart Blackie did, ἀνάγωσις, reading aloud, not just it is and was an essential part of any language, but particular a characteristic element of Biblical Greek, but also an inhered part of al...
