Re: Learning Greek Verbs

Is there any easy (or what is the least difficult) way of learning Greek verbs? I have "All the Greek Verbs" by Marinone which is useful but not for learning verb forms. I assume the reason there is no Greek equivalent of, say, Barron's "501 Latin Verbs", "501 Hebrew Verbs", etc. is because there a...

Re: ΖΗΤΩ B-GREEK!

I'm very glad that Carl will continue as a member of the advisory board and as a contributor. He continues to be my best sounding-board for B-Greek, and was extremely helpful in deciding how to structure the new forum. His deep knowledge of Greek and enthusiasm have always been one of the main thin...

I'm just reading an article by Charles L. Quarles, "The Use of the Gospel of Thomas in the Research on the Historical Jesus of John Dominic Crossan", CBQ 69 (2007): 517-36 in which he writes, "Since the causal clause that follows the Beatitude in Luke uses second person forms, however, οἱ πτωχοί in...

Re: Romans 13:3b - Statement or question?

"QELEIS DE MH FOBEISQAI THN EXOUSIAN·" (Romans 13:3b). This is punctuated as a statement. Is it more likely to be a statement or a question?

Re: Staging a New Testament meal

Here are some specific responses from the Classics list: You might want to look for A. Dalby & S. Grainger, The Classical Cookbook, Getty, 1996. it has a number of recipes adapted for the modern kitchen from ancient sources. Umm Is there really such a **thing** as a NT meal? The location of the meal...

Ferguson & New Bible Dictionary

I find one of the best handbook introductions to the "History, Culture and Background" of the New Testament is Everett Ferguson's Backgrounds of Early Christianity , Grand Rapids, Eerdmans, 1993 (second edition). Succinct, but lots of relevant information (I used it in teaching NT Intro). Surprising...
