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?

Pratum spirituale (Leimon)

Ἦν τις γέρων οἰκῶν ἐν τῇ μονῇ τοῦ ἀββᾶ Εὐστοργίου, ὅντινα ὁ ἐν ἁγίοις ἡμῶν ὁ ἀρχιεπίσκοπος Ἱεροσολύμων ἠθέλησεν ποιῆσαι ἡγούμενον τοῦ μοναστηρίου. Ὁ δὲ οὐ κατεδέξατο, λέγων· Ἐν τῷ Σινᾶ ὄρει θέλω γενέσθαι εὐχῆς χάριν. Ὁ δὲ ἀρχιεπίσκοπος ἠνάγκαζεν αὐτὸν γενέσθαι, καὶ οὕτως ἀπελθεῖν. Οὐκ ἀνασχεθέντα δὲ αὐτοῦ τὸν γέροντα, ἀπέλυσεν συνταξάμενον, μετὰ τὴν ἐπάνοδον τὴν ἡγεμονίαν καταδέχεσθαι. Καὶ δὴ οὕτως ἀσπασάμενος τὸν ἀρχιεπίσκοπον, ἐξῆλθεν τὴν ὁδοιπορίαν ποιούμενος ἐπὶ τὸ Σίναιον ὄρος, λαβὼν τὸν ...

Acts 16:16-18 exorcism: πνεῦμα πύθωνα

Acts 16:16 Ἐγένετο δὲ πορευομένων ἡμῶν εἰς τὴν προσευχὴν παιδίσκην τινὰ ἔχουσαν πνεῦμα πύθωνα ὑπαντῆσαι ἡμῖν, ἥτις ἐργασίαν πολλὴν παρεῖχεν τοῖς κυρίοις αὐτῆς μαντευομένη. 17 αὕτη κατακολουθοῦσα τῷ Παύλῳ καὶ ἡμῖν ἔκραζεν λέγουσα· οὗτοι οἱ ἄνθρωποι δοῦλοι τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ὑψίστου εἰσίν, οἵτινες καταγγέλλουσιν ὑμῖν ὁδὸν σωτηρίας. 18 τοῦτο δὲ ἐποίει ἐπὶ πολλὰς ἡμέρας. διαπονηθεὶς δὲ Παῦλος καὶ ἐπιστρέψας τῷ πνεύματι εἶπεν· παραγγέλλω σοι ἐν ὀνόματι Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ ἐξελθεῖν ἀπ᾿ αὐτῆς· καὶ ἐξῆλθεν αὐτῇ τῇ ...

A Koine reading list

I have been spending most of my time reading Attic Greek lately, and it was a pleasant surprise to come back to Mark and find out that all that work has paid off there too. I was able to read through Mark like a novel, in just a few hours, with full comprehension, including all of the chapters that I had never looked at in Greek before. This is exciting to me -- I feel ...

Hi, my name is John

Hi, I'm a semi-retired guy who has started to learn Greek, again. I've tried before but life has always intervened(or at least that's my excuse). I'm interested in cooking, theology, and leaning Greek, and eventually Latin. I'm working through Mounce and supplementing it with Machen's text. I hope eventually to be able to both read and write Koine, and read the Septuagint and NT in the original language. Any help form others here will be ...

Greek Grammar and the Personality of the Holy Spirit

W. Hall Harris III considers himself to be a "scholar" of the Greek with over "30 years of experience" teaching NT Greek at the "intermediate level." Like many trinitarian "scholars" he thinks he has grammatical evidence for holy spirit's "personality" through constructio ad sensum in the following verses. See here:

o} Although neuter pronouns are used to refer to the Spirit in this verse, agreeing with ...

A Halloween treat

Not strictly Halloweenish, since the scene described is the resurrection, but here’s my favorite bit of an early gospel which some scholars think antedates the ones eventually accepted into the canon. Enough to scare the kiddies, I should think.

ειδον εξελθοντας απο του ταφου τρεις ανδρας, και τους δυο τον ενα υπορθουντας, και σταυρον ακολουθουντα αυτοις και των μεν δυο την κεφαλην χωρουσαν μεχρι του ουρανου, την δε χειρα του υπορθουμενου υπ αυτων υπερβαινουσαν τους ...
