Re: ἄρτι vs νῦν

But why would there be two different words that mean exactly the same thing? Surely there is a slightly different meaning? Why wouldn't an author just use one of them as opposed to using them in different places in the same book to describe things? I can only say that this happens in Hebrew, where ...

Re: B-Greek members map

I have to confess to not knowing what OP you're talking about and not really knowing why someone would need to join when they are already a member. Could you clarify what you mean and perhaps put a link to what you're talking about?

Some of the forms of φέρω seem totally unrelated to φέρω in just about every visual way. Is there any way to explain why φέρω looks so different in these forms?
They aren't related. You need to simply memorize them.

What is the primary difference between these two words?
Is there a primary difference? I believe that they're the same thing.

Re: Aorist Imperatives

What exactly do aorist imperatives mean? How should they be translated? When I read an Aorist Active Imperative in the text, it seems like it should be Present instead. Is there something i'm missing? Aorist is the regular imperative. When you tell someone to do something. Present carries the aspec...

Re: Ancient Greek for Everyone

https://ancientgreek.pressbooks.com This looks like it could be a very helpful beginning text. It includes readings from both classical and biblical Greek, has very clear explanations, and even reminds us that the subjunctive and the optative "tenses" really are aspect... :D I quite like it.

Re: When to Treat Participles as Finite Verbs, e.g., Luke 10:18

In other words, it is just as it is in English:

"She saw the children playing in the yard."

In this case, πεσόντα is telling us what Jesus saw τὸν σατανᾶν doing. It could simply be considered a circumstantial participle. He saw him as he fell.

Re: Greek NT and LXX for Kindle

Hi. I'd like to have a mobi version of OT interlinear, but couldn't find this one you mentioned. Would you provide us a link for downloading it? Was this the one you tried? Hi, Jonathan. I can't help but notice that he said "OT interlinear." I think he was asking for resources that haven't been pro...

Jason,
I have a long article on this in the Verbless Clause in BH volume (1999?). gadol ha-bayit has fronted 'gadol' for pragmatic effect.
I'm going to read your article now, which I see you have posted on your website.

Thanks.

Re: Expertise in Greek

[Note to Greek students: BH studies are almost as messed up as NTG. The field cannot definitely say whether he default way to say 'the house is big' is gadol ha-bayit or ha-bayit gadol, (הבית גדול).] Ps 48:2: גָּדוֹל יהוה וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד בְּעִיר אֱלֹהֵינוּ הַר־קָדְשׁוֹ Not יהוה גדול but גדול יהוה ...
