Re: What version did Jesus use?

I've enjoyed reading this thread and had a chance a few days ago to read Randall’s paper, regarding the distinction between Ἑβραϊστὶ and Σύρων . I was reading St. John Chrysostom’s Homily V on 2 Timothy. In that homily, St. John C. has a discussion on the contrast between Nero and St. Paul, which in...

Offline Lexicon App

Hi, This might be something everybody but me already knew, but . . . About a year ago I found some dictionary files for use with the Golden Dictionary App. Below is a link to my Dropbox.

Reading Recommendations After Xenophon

I just finished Anabasis and thought it was terrific - the Greek was straightforward and I'm a history buff, plus a great story. What is the natural step after Xenophon for history? Herodotus? (But I'm not familiar with the dialect). I've read Josephus Jewish War. I understand Thucydides is quite di...

Re: Reading greek of the early church fathers?

I am now working my way through Chrysostom's Homilies on Romans. Now at pg. 218 of 497 - the man had a lot to say, much of it very thought-provoking. Particularly regarding wealth and poverty. The vocab is much beyond the New Testament and Apostolic Fathers. Syntax is much also more complex. For wha...

Uncial New Testament

Does anyone have an idea of where to purchase a New Testament in Uncial script? Not necessarily a facsimile of a codex (which are too much $$). Just a GNT in Uncial script. My reason for wanting one is sort of silly, but I would like to use it devotionally -- getting "close" to the text, etc. Thanks...

St John Chrysostom Recomendations

(Happy Thanksgiving, of course)

What text by St. John Chrysostom would you all recommend as a first exposure to his work?

I was considering his homilies on Romans, but was wondering if there is a better (or more usual) entry point.

Thanks

Re: Greek/English Facing Page Patristic Texts

Thanks, everyone, for the input --- Which books on St, Vladimir Seminary Press are Greek-English diglotts? http://www.svspress.com/categories/Popular-Patristics-Series/. The two Greek/English volumes in the Popular Patristics series are St. Athanasius On the Incarnation (44A) and St. Gregory of Nazi...
