Re: Another Newbie

Welcome, Mike. I'd encourage you to read a verse-or-so of the Greek New Testament each day - even if you don't understand everything at present. Read it aloud, and listen to yourself speak.

Re: Teaching the Genitive

I'd like to ask the pedagogues, teachers, and self-learners on the forum how you teach what the genitive means.

Re: μὴ κατακαυχᾶσθε καὶ ψεύδεσθε

In James 3:14 I see μὴ κατακαυχᾶσθε καὶ ψεύδεσθε I'm trying to understand if "you must not boast and you must not lie" is grammatically valid; that is, if the negation applies to both imperatives. Thanks in advance! Considering the context, one could hardly see ψεύδεσθε as a positive impe...
