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...

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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 ...

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...
