Matthew 13:45 ουρανων = heaven or heavens

Matthew 13:45: “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like..." "παλιν ομοια εστιν η βασιλεια των ουρανων εμπορω ζητουντι καλους μαργαριτας" I thought ουρανων would parse as "Masculine, Plural Genitive"? Why does it get translated to be "Heaven" not "Heavens"?

Re: Sabbath genitive or accusative

Thanks, your right, in an attempt to go back and edit for clarity, I've mixed it up. I'd fix the original post, but I can't find the edit button, it looks like it might disappear after a while, I am sure there was an edit button there before.

Re: Checking answers in Duff's "The Elements of New Testamen

Thanks Guys, I appreciate the feedback, I have come to realise that given my interest in this, perhaps I should apply to study this for real at college here in Melbourne. I've put in some application forms, we'll see what happens. :) In terms of the book for self teaching; apart from feeling like I ...

Sabbath genitive or accusative

While doing some translation practice, I wasn't sure if Sabbath should be considered in this sentence as genitive or accusative. Do you (s) keep the Sabbath because of the law? τηρεις το σαββατον δια τον νομον; I know it doesn't matter in this case because nominative and accusative of sabbath have t...

Re: Checking answers in Duff's "The Elements of New Testamen

Hi Jacob, I am sorry that one aspect of The Elements of New Testament Greek hasn't worked out for you as you had hoped. ..... I hope that this works for you. There are still an awful lot of practice exercises for you in the book, which answers are supplied for, even if not the 'section B sentences'...

Re: Question about taking college courses

Should I take this to mean that learning the language well enough to pick-up and read a Greek bible is not very obtainable, or that it will take decades of study? I realize that I'm not going to ever be considered a Greek scholar, but being able to read the New Testament is the only goal that would...

Re: Checking answers in Duff's "The Elements of New Testamen

I hadn't noticed that statement of rationale, but it does basically mean that this book does not cater for people who want to self study. Its disappointing because I purchased the book with the expectation that I would be able to learn greek, I am uncomfortable with the idea that I have to do exerci...

Re: New Testament Greek Vocabulary Assessment

Yea, I feel cheated after trying out your site. I got the number down to "3 words left" before you get something, and then I did a few more and it jumped up to "28 words left", its like it forgot that I had already done so many words.

That said, its good study practice :)

Re: Question about Living Koine materials

I love the newer materials, but how do you go with the pronunciation differences. I'm not a huge fan of imaginary pronunciation :)

Re: Checking answers in Duff's "The Elements of New Testamen

Sadly the links to the exercises on that page are all broken. Thanks for the pointer though. Ultimately I was hoping to be able to work through the book and check my answers; otherwise what is the point of the book?
