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...

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..

Re: Looking up English words derived from Greek

Randall Buth sent me a file one called GreekCognates.pdf. It has 11 pages of Συγγενικαὶ Λέξεις. But the English gloss is only filled out for the alphas. That is the only list I know of....
