Re: Hebrews 2,10 - meaning of the Aorist participle

Dear Barry, nice to meet you! Oh, no, yes, there is a second problem: >The question of its implied antecedent was discussed above under αὐτῷ. At least this one is not tempting the rendering if you stay with "he", so the Lord Jesus or God, the father, can function as antecedent. But in the latter pa...

What pronunciation is it? https://christthetruth.net/2012/06/23/free-greek-audio-bible/ Right on their web page they state: The Koine Greek (Textus Receptus) audio Bible is now available for download for all who have already learned...
