Re: Illustrating Semantic Range

Yes, it's "unfamiliarity with the language." And I think that's exactly what's involved in the current discussion on the regular B-Greek list about πάντα πιστεύει, "believes all things." Even the NET has "believes all things" for this expression, but it is really what people on the B-Translation lis...

Textbooks (Introductory, Secondary) and Reference Grammars

I think we ought to make a distinction between (a) those instructional works that we ordinarily call "textbooks" or even "primers" but perhaps including "intermediate" or "second-year" textbooks. We ought also to distinguish Biblical Koine textbooks from Classical Attic or Homeric textbooks. Among t...

Re: Feeds should be working now

You can subscribe through your blog aggregator, I think; Jonathan reads them in Google Reader. Since Apple Mail will download any RSS feed, I simply clicked "subscribe" for each forum, typed in/read "pasted" the URL http://www-test.ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum into the popup for RSS feeds -- and soon st...

Re: Working Papers in Greek Language & Linguistics

Incredibly? You didn't expect any response at all? I personally think that hosting such "working papers" as you describe would (a) perform a function of immense value not only to serious students of Biblical Greek but to serious Classicists concerned with the whole development of the Greek language,...

What are the topics in Teaching Methods?

I am throwing out this topical question or interrogative topic simply to see whether we have a fundamental agreement on what belongs here. I am probably stating the two methods -- there may be others -- probably in sharper contrast than I ought, but this is to get the discussion started. It seems to...

Re: What Secular Greek texts do you give NT Greek students?

I should let Louis answer this one: the #1 answer is, I think, Epictetus. Louis has a site devoted to resources for reading and studying the Enchiridion or "Manual" of Epictetus, a selection from the Stoic teacher's street lectures delivered in Rome as recorded by the historian Appian. Parts of Marc...

Re: Best online Septuagint?

A PDF file of Rahlfs, not very convenient: http://ba.21.free.fr/septuaginta/cover.html Of course, the most convenient of all is in a Biblical software passage; I have the LXX in Accordance, but it's there in other packages too. But they're commercial. Free software: The Sword Project, with programs ...

Re: Middle or Passive? καὶ ὃς ἐὰν ἀπολελυμένην γαμήσῃ μοιχᾶτ

I think you probably are trying too hard to bend the Greek. I don't think we should assume that the different synoptic versions should be harmonized. I think that ἀπολελυμένην probably should be best understood as a passive: "a woman who has been divorced from (her) husband. The question may be aske...
