Erasmian, Ecclesiastical?

Greetings all,
This is my first post here. I took two years of Koine Greek and learned I am not satisfied with "erasmian" pronunciation. Can someone please help me learn the Ecclesiatical pronunciation? I.E. The pronunciation the Eastern Orthodox Churches use.

Luke 22:44 bloody sweat

Books on Synonyms

Greetings all,

I am looking for a resource that covers synonyms of the Greek NT and LXX. I am aware of R.C. Trench’s book; but are there other more modern works available? Or is that the only one?
