Re: In Acts 5:3, what is the function of σε?

No, the subject of the main verb in the English example provide by Michael is "I" and the subject of the infinitive is "her." If the subject were the same it would be something like "I wanted to eat an apple." As in English, so in Greek, if the subjects are the same the subject of the infinitive is...

Re: In Acts 5:3, what is the function of σε?

Here's the phrase it is part of:
ψεύσασθαί σε τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἅγιον
σε is the accusative subject of the infinitive ψεύσασθαί.

Re: 1 Pet 1:8 which verb does ἄρτι construe with?

... εἰς ὃν ἄρτι μὴ ὁρῶντες πιστεύοντες δὲ άγαλλιᾶσθε ... Normally ἄρτι is construed with ὁρῶντες, despite the placement of the negative μή and the redundancy of the present tense.

Re: Learning Koine Biblical Greek for a native French speaker

Re: Typing Tutor for Ancient Greek

I would recommend that you activate the Polytonic keyboard that is already in the Mac or PC system. It is the Greek national keyboard. Then you will have a standard anywhere you travel in the world, on any machine. (PS: there are minor accent differences between PC and Mac). You don't want to learn...

Re: Typing Tutor for Ancient Greek

Yeah, I just started typing out Greek texts. Take out your Greek NT or LXX and start copying it onto the computer. Force yourself to find the keys. If you cannot find one, ask here. ἐν ἀρχῇ ἐποίησεν ὁ θεὸς τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν. ἡ δὲ γῆ ἦν ἀόρατος καὶ ἀκατασκεύαστος, καὶ σκότος ἐπάνω τῆς ἀβύσσου,...

Re: A Newbie Greek Learner

@Jason Hare I have been using biblingo for Hebrew, and it definitely does present grammar. I have been using it for Hebrew and I am impressed. @Jonathan Robie: That's really nice to hear. I'm glad that the app is working and is helpful. Did you get it at a discount? From what I see, it's about $300...
