Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

It's quite possible that the tools will drive adoption of the text rather than the other way around, assuming we have an openly available text of sufficient quality. I admire your optimism. The only thing I can foresee dislodging Nestle-Aland is a massive loss of confidence in the CBGM. Dislodging ...

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

But suppose we go the other route and create a text. What would it take to get street cred so that it can be used in academic publications and translations? The big problem is network effects. There is a lot of value in everyone working from the same text, and academics have settled on Nestle-Aland...

Re: Lawrence O. Richards ὑπόκρισις word group

I like this thread. To me, it really does seem sound.

I like this example from 1 Peter 1:22:
1 Peter 1:22 wrote:εἰς φιλαδελφίαν ἀνυπόκριτον
Should ἀνυπόκριτος be seen as a privative - "without play-acting", or has it taken on an active meaning of "genuine" on its own?

Re: Pastor and student

Seneca wrote:Accordingly, since you cannot read all the books which you may possess, it is enough to possess only as many books as you can read.
So Seneca said that before my wife did?

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

But suppose we go the other route and create a text. What would it take to get street cred so that it can be used in academic publications and translations? We can re-interpret my question "why wouldn't that work today" to mean "if it produced a work with credibility then, why wouldn't it work in s...

Re: Finding Old Greek-Latin Lexicons

Micheal Palmer lists these ancient Greek lexica , but none seem to be Greek / Latin. There are links in his original post. Ancient Greek Lexicographers: Writers in the ancient world who produced dictionaries or word lists to help readers and orators Ἀμερίας (3rd century BC) Amerias was a Macedonian ...

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

In the older thread which I linked in a previous post in this thread we saw that Nestle 1904 was made mechanically by majority vote. So I ask again, why wouldn't that work today? Take NA27, SBLGNT and THGNT. Remove punctuation, paragraphs and capitalization. Somehow make them to use the same orthog...

p.s. would a moderator kindly change my username to Sam Parkinson? I can't work out how to contact one directly, as I haven't posted enough to message any of you - at least as far as I can work out!
Done.

Re: Sam Parkinson

Finding B-Greek has been like finding a gold mine: there's just so much good stuff here. I've had to teach myself, and being able to learn from such an array of people who are far further on is marvelous. I'm glad you like it here. I love hearing that kind of thing. I'm a pastor-in-training based i...

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

From earlier discussion, I think they actually want to make it open, but found this difficult . Do you why? I'm not sure. I should try to reopen the discussion with them. And perhaps stop discussing that particular question in public ;-> In general, I think that traditional publishers are rarely fa...
