Re: On Conditionals in the Greek Pentateuch

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 text. Are the parts of the OT that are given in NT in Greek essentially the same or there are variations due to the translation problems. For examp...

Re: δε and ἀλλα

You can read the relevant sections (at least δε and ἀλλα) in http://www.ntdiscourse.org/docs/Discourse%20grammar%20sample.pdf.

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

The JavaScript approach could work, but the more we customize phpBB, the more we have to do every time there's an upgrade. Apart from that, the optimal solution would be to offer personal settings for fonts. I don't like the idea of a forum forcing something else, when I have already chosen a font ...
