Hi There!

Postby Scott Cove » November 19th, 2013, 12:45 am

Hi there!

My name is Scott Cove, and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Theology/Ministry Double degree at Melbourne School of Theology (In Melbourne, Australia of course!). Having just completed first year Greek (one of the most intensive in Oz, I am told), I am looking to keep my skills up, as well as sharpen them for the upcoming Intermediate course in Febuary. As a result, I have set myself a summer project to work my way through and translate the Pastorals, starting with Titus. I have come up with a few questions already, and am looking for some help with particularly the gramatical issues that arise.

I am looking forward to digging in with you all!

Thanks,
Scott.

Welcome, it's nice to know the church is not totally dead in Australia! Also, I'm not sure if this site allows for it, but I would love to get some people and translate through a book together, if others would be up for it. Maybe we could set up a topic within the forum, stay at the same pace, and share questions and encouragements. :ugeek: But I'm newer to this site than you are, maybe people have already done it.

We have done this here before (see http://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/viewforum.php?f=51), but in 2014 we will be working through Isaiah in Greek through a Facebook group, at https://www.facebook.com/groups/461575637214732/

Cool, thank you! The LXX might be interesting to try, I've really only taken NT Greek.
