Re: The Perennial Question: Best Intermediate Grammar Text?

From AT Robertson's "A Short Greek Grammar of the New Testament": Three types of New Testament grammars are needed: a beginner's grammar for men who have had no Greek training, an advanced and complete grammar for scholars and more critical seminary work, an intermediate handy working grammar for me...

Re: ἀπὸ ὁ...

In Revelation 1:4 it says, "χάρις ὑμῖν καὶ εἰρήνη ἀπὸ ὁ ὤν καὶ ὁ ἦν καὶ ὁ ἐρχόμενος..."
Why does it say ἀπὸ ὁ instead of ἀπὸ τοῦ?
Or you could read it as a truncated version of "ἀπὸ (οὗ ἐστιν) ὁ ὤν καὶ ὁ ἦν καὶ ὁ ἐρχόμενος..."

Re: List of single-instance words in the NT by book?

If you know Microsoft Access, you can download my NTDatabase3.mdb http://www.letsreadgreek.org/resources/NTDatabase3.mdb and find that information by querying one the NT texts.

There are some Semitic Koine texts, like Joseph and Asenath, Maccabees (some written in Greek and some translated), early writings of the church fathers. There also some secular Koine texts s...

BTW, the new book, Advances in the Study of Greek: New Insights for Reading the New Testament , by Constantin R Campbell, Zondervan, 2015, has a chapter on Pronunciation (chapter 9. pp.192-208). Campbell comes to the conclusion that using a Modern or Restored Koine pronunciation is a better choice, ...

Re: Proofreading your Greek

And probably, if you have time, run your content by a friend who can read/write Greek so you have a second set of eyes. i.e., get someone else to proof-read your content.

Re: Looking up English words derived from Greek

So I looked at Buth's list and the one Carl referenced. I cannot find a reference to ἰατρός doctor . This is the word for 'doctor' from which we have the suffix -iatric and -iatrist.. Bariatric,Pediatric, Podiatrist, ktl. So I believe that this subject needs an update. I cannot believe that in 2015,...
