An MLK Day treat

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

μὴ κατὰ χρῶτα, ἀλλὰ κατ' ἀρετήν.

I was unable to capture the alliteration or any of the poetry of the original. I'm not real happy with my attempt to capture the essence.

Alternate renderings into Greek of this or any ...

Revelation 3:10: Roman Empire or Whole World?

Hello everyone! :)

This one is about eschatology (or not?). Let´s see what you think:


Rev 3:10: ὅτι ἐτήρησας τὸν λόγον τῆς ὑπομονῆς μου, κἀγώ σε τηρήσω ἐκ τῆς ὥρας τοῦ πειρασμοῦ τῆς μελλούσης ἔρχεσθαι ἐπὶ τῆς οἰκουμένης ὅλης πειράσαι τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς "

Is the hour of test affecting the Roman Empire or the whole globe?

ὅστις in Matt 2:6

Matt 2:6 wrote:ὅστις ποιμανεῖ τὸν λαόν μου τὸν Ἰσραήλ.


I'm struggling here with ὅστις. What would the change in meaning be if it had read ὅς instead of ὅστις? Any thoughts?

A Female προστάτις in Romans 16:2

Hello everyone,

here is another interesting one on Paul and women:

Romans 16:
1 συνίστημι δὲ ὑμῖν φοίβην τὴν ἀδελφὴν ἡμῶν, οὗσαν διάκονον τῆς ἐκκλησίας τῆς ἐν κεγχρεαῖς,
2 ἵνα αὐτὴν προσδέξησθε ἐν κυρίῳ ἀξίως τῶν ἁγίων, καὶ παραστῆτε αὐτῇ ἐν ᾧ ἂν ὑμῶν χρῄζῃ πράγματι, καὶ γὰρ αὐτὴ προστάτις πολλῶν ἐγενήθη καὶ ἐμοῦ αὐτοῦ.

3 ἀσπάσασθε πρίσκαν καὶ ἀκύλαν τοὺς συνεργούς μου ἐν χριστῶ ἰησοῦ,

What, do you think, was Phoebe´s role? And ...

ἤ in 1Corinthians 14:36

Hello everyone!

I am 27, German and currently studying theology and working as a bible teacher. I was wondering whether you could help me with a translation. The question is: How would you translate the ἤ in verse 36?

34 αἱ γυναῖκες ἐν ταῖς ἐκκλησίαις σιγάτωσαν, οὐ γὰρ ἐπιτρέπεται αὐταῖς λαλεῖν· ἀλλὰ ὑποτασσέσθωσαν, καθὼς καὶ ὁ νόμος λέγει.
35 εἰ δέ τι μαθεῖν θέλουσιν, ἐν οἴκῳ τοὺς ἰδίους ἄνδρας ἐπερωτάτωσαν, αἰσχρὸν γάρ ἐστιν γυναικὶ λαλεῖν ...

A Christmas treat

This is a bit early, but it will probably take me a few weeks. (Or months?)

Τοῦ ἐν ἁγίοις πατρὸς ἡμῶν Μεθοδίου πρεσβυτέρου καὶ ἡγουμένου εἰς τὸν βίον καὶ τὰ λείποντα τοῦ ὁσίου πατρὸς ἡμῶν Νικολάου ἀρχιεπισκόπου Μύρων.

Ἐπειδὴ ἡ τῶν καθ’ ἡμᾶς λόγων πλοκὴ τῇ ἀσαφείᾳ τῆς πρωχονοίας τὸ γρῖφόν σοι ἐντυγχάνοντι ἐπέχειν νομίζεται, ζητεῖ δὲ ἡ καθαρά σου ἁπλότης, ὦ ἀνδρῶν ἄριστε καὶ περιφανέστατε Θεόδωρε, λόγον ἐγκωμίου τῇ φράσει ἀποίκιλον καὶ νοήμασι τὸν ...

Koine NT Study Guides?

Years ago, there was a website with free study guides for all or most of the books of the Koine NT. They were written for 2nd year Koine students, I think. Is the site still around?
