Introduction

Post by armstrong-larry@comcast.net » May 26th, 2017, 7:54 am

Hi! I'm Larry Armstrong, a retired Presbyterian pastor. I studied Greek under Doctors Harry Rodgers and Dale Bowne at Grove City College in the 1970's. I used Greek fairly well throughout seminary and in the early years of pastoring churches. But, as with many pastors, I allowed my Greek to slip into the background as I became busy with the professional ministry. Nearing retirement several years ago, I determined to renew my Greek so that I could study the New Testament and Septuagint more thoroughly in retirement. I took a Greek Reading Course at Pittsburgh Seminary under Dr. James Durlesser for a few years, and I've been endeavoring to improve my Greek facility since then. Having run across a reference to B-Greek, I joined in order to read the articles. Thanks for everyone who has contributed. Perhaps I'll eventually have something useful to add. In the meantime, I'll just read.

And remember that a good question is often the best possible contribution.

We have experts here who can answer most questions. We often need more good questions.
