Re: McMaster & B-Greek

Which things might require a change in policy? We could have a section where theology and other topics which have hitherto been considered out of bounds would be allowed. People who are uninterested or offended could just stay out of this section. If a thread got closed, people resume it there. I a...

McMaster & B-Greek

On Mike Aubrey's blog, he says I’ve never actually seen either students or professors from MacDiv participating in the discussions on the B-Greek list. . There are currently 15 comments discussing why. What can we learn from this discussion? Which things can a change of software help with? Which thi...

Policy: User Names and Profiles

Your user name, signature, and profile should clearly identify you. We do not allow anonymous membership on B-Greek, and we do not allow names like "Terminator" or "Captain Midnight" - people using such names may be banned. Spaces and periods are allowed, so you can have a user name like "Jonathan R...

Re: List of Beginning Grammars

Wow - that's a little overwhelming! Which of these are most worth looking at, and why? Which ones are best for composition? Anyone familiar with these two on particles? Hoogeveen, H. 1829 -- Greek particles Paley, F. A. 1881 -- Short treatise on the Greek particles and their combinations according t...

Re: What is DECODING and GRAMMAR/TRANSLATION?

I think there's a middle ground here. Let's compare what Carl wrote to my description of phrasing a Greek text . Both use the same verse as an example, which makes comparison fairly easy. I once had a notion of a computer program that would display Greek paragraphs with accretions of each new word/p...

Re: What is DECODING and GRAMMAR/TRANSLATION?

Gack. For a while, I would take any text that I wanted to understand and line it out, as described here , often starting with an automatically phrased Greek New Testament . I find that helpful.

Re: Policy: B-Greek does require Greek

Carl Conrad has created a test that you can use to determine whether you have a working knowledge of biblical Greek, as we understand it here. A few guidelines for the test: Feel free to use a lexicon for some unfamiliar words, but this is otherwise a closed-book text. This is a self-test. Use this ...
