Re: public domain audio recording of Matthew in ancient Greek (the non-modern pronunciation)

But is there a good free audio with Erasmian pronunciation? This is about as good as I can find
Not everything that is free should be used.

Re: public domain audio recording of Matthew in ancient Greek (the non-modern pronunciation)

Would another person please listen to Matthew 5 and provide a second review? (see the separate thread https://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=3862 "I opened Matt 5 to get a sample listen. My first reaction: unreliable and not recommendable for students.

Re: Greek Byzantine New Testament MP3

I opened Matt 5 to get a sample listen. My first reaction: unreliable and not recommendable for students. Intonation is like a crossword puzzle, accents are incorrect, introduction to chapter in English, hestitations not according to sense and unrelated to content, and grating, non-Greek, US-Erasmia...

Re: public domain audio recording of Matthew in ancient Greek (the non-modern pronunciation)

What does 'non-modern' mean?
The question is not facetious because several pronunciation schemes are non-modern and non-greek. :o And for ancient, I might assume that you don't mean 5th century BC but are more interested in 1cBC-2cAD, especially land of Israel, East Med.

Re: Papias: Ματθαῖος μὲν οὖν Ἑβραΐδι διαλέκτῳ τὰ λόγια συνετάξατο

It is support because a Hebrew "Oracles of the Lord" is internally consistent as reflecting a title from a Hebrew Gospel, a possibility that Papias probably could not have anticipated. Please note, I do not claim that the two points are sufficient proof, only support. For the proof, please look at t...

Re: Papias: Ματθαῖος μὲν οὖν Ἑβραΐδι διαλέκτῳ τὰ λόγια συνετάξατο

Jonathan, One of the problems is assuming that the tradition (that Papias mentioned) referred to our canonical Matthew. It is rather clear that our canonical Greek Matthew is not a translation but was originally written in Greek (howbeit with Semitic influences). (Yes, I have articles that refer to ...

Re: Understanding Randal Buth's example of the Perfect tense he presents to critique Campell

I am becoming inclined to believe that Randal's example "Πᾶν ὁ μεγας τεθνηκεν" would not be considered by Campbell to suggest process (dying). (Although I am not inclined just yet to disagree with Randall, he seems smarter and more experienced than me :D ) Reading his 2007 (Verbal Aspect...) public...

Re: Can verbs have a case?

In Basics of Biblical Greek, Dr. Mounce said "verbs do not have case or gender" However, wouldn't this be incorrect if the verb is articular? For instance in 1 Thessalonians 1:10 τὸν ῥυόμενον, wouldn't ῥυόμενον be considered being in the Accusative case based on τὸν? Thanks for the help! Technicall...

Re: Understanding Randal Buth's example of the Perfect tense he presents to critique Campell

I don't have Campbell at hand nor have I read your (Randall's) article, but I can't help wondering if you misrepresent Campbell's argument. It's a common traditional view that the perfect has a complete action and present relevance, and the present relevance is a state. Some have argued that the pe...

Re: Understanding Randal Buth's example of the Perfect tense he presents to critique Campell

You're welcome.

I wish that Zondervan would have the Basics of Verbal Aspect re-written by someone with a Greek verbal view.
The field is slow to correct itself when major publishers push a book that mis-represents the issues.
