Thomas Naeogeorgus on Greek grammar of Bible verse

Greetings, Steven Avery here, from Hyde Park, NY. In Bible research, occasionally I run into interesting question on Latin and Greek issues. I have found that look to be excellent writings (e.g. Prudent Maran and Johann Albert Fabricius in the 1700s) have never been translated.

Here is a Latin sentence from the 1500s that could use translation.

Miror etiam, quamobrem Ioannes tribus neutris masculina & postposuerit, & praeposuerit, irata Grammatica, nisi fortasis scriptura est deprauata ...

Basics of Biblical Greek

I am using William Mounce's Basics of Biblical Greek 3rd edition. It takes me longer to do the memorization because of brain injuries from auto accidents and twice undergoing chemo treatments (chemo brain). It would be helpful if anyone else is using BOBG 3rd ed that we could help & encourage each other. I feel very much alone in this.

Coptic for students of Biblical Greek

Having read a number of popular books that deal with the Nag Hammadi Library, I have often wondered how much effort it takes to become proficient in Coptic. I downloaded a pdf of COPTIC IN 20 LESSONS and read through the first eleven lessons. The author appears to be the north american expert on the subject with a full grammar and other publications. He states that the 20 Lessons represent one academic year worth of ...

P.Egerton 2

Found S. E. Porter in my local library yesterday. The probability of this happening is very low. But they also have a book by Michael Bird so it isn't impossible. Porter is currently dabbling in papyrology. He launches into a very dense argument for an early date for John's Gospel based in part on allusions to John in P.Egerton 2, a document that has been known since the 1930s. Porter's argument isn't overwhelmingly persuasive but ...

I'm digitizing the Apophthegmata Patrum

I am currently digitizing the Apophthegmata Patrum (Gerontikon) in Greek. I wanted to let everyone know in case someone happens to be doing the same. When I am done, I hope to set up a blog dedicated to the study of this composition.
I hope to have this digitized in a few months. I am using the Git Hub OCR repository for the Patrologia Graeca which is making things less tedious (Tome 65). Also a ...

Victor of Antioch's "Mark Commentary" : where is the greek?

Matt. 21:18 Πρωῒ δὲ ἐπανάγων εἰς τὴν πόλιν ἐπείνασεν. 19 καὶ ἰδὼν συκῆν μίαν ἐπὶ τῆς ὁδοῦ ἦλθεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτὴν καὶ οὐδὲν εὗρεν ἐν αὐτῇ εἰ μὴ φύλλα μόνον, καὶ λέγει αὐτῇ· μηκέτι ἐκ σοῦ καρπὸς γένηται εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα. καὶ ἐξηράνθη παραχρῆμα ἡ συκῆ.

Mark 11:12 Καὶ τῇ ἐπαύριον ἐξελθόντων αὐτῶν ἀπὸ Βηθανίας ἐπείνασεν. 13 καὶ ἰδὼν συκῆν ἀπὸ μακρόθεν ἔχουσαν φύλλα ἦλθεν, εἰ ἄρα τι εὑρήσει ἐν αὐτῇ, καὶ ἐλθὼν ἐπ᾿ αὐτὴν οὐδὲν ...
