The best grammar? The best dictionary?

We're compiling a FAQ (frequently asked questions) section for Textkit, to cover a few things that come up a lot on the forum. For Koine matters I need some help.

What is the best Koine reference grammar currently available? If there are several, what level are they directed at? And I need the same information for dictionaries.

I'd prefer not more than 2-3 paragraphs tops for the FAQ answers if possible, so I don't need ...

John 8:58

Does the Greek text of John 8:58 sound strange to those of you who are very familiar with classical Greek but who have not had a whole lot of exposure to Biblical Greek?

"ei=pen au)toi=j )Ihsou=j: a)mh\n a)mh\n le/gw u(mi=n, pri\n )Abraa\m gene/sqai e)gw\ ei)mi/.
I am talking about the tense of the ei)mi/. Does this tense only indicate aspect so that it could be replaced with an imperfect form, or is it written this ...

Implied direct object. (2 Tim. 4:18)

In a sentence that consists of two parts it is common to have the verb omitted from the second part.
1 Tim. 4:18 seems to have this happen with the direct object.
r(u/setai/ me o( ku/rioj a)po\ panto\j e)/gou ponhrou= kai\ sw/sei ei)j th\n basilei/an au)tou= th\n e)poura/nion: me is omitted in the second half of the sentence, but it seems to be the object here as well.
Is this a comon thing? I can't ...

Romans 6:2

oi(/tinej a)peqa/nomen th|= a(marti/a|, pw=j e)/ti zh/somen e)n au)th|=;

I translated this,

We who are dead to sin, how yet shall we live in it?

The pronoun threw me off. Any comments would be helpful.

Dana and Mantley Grammar

Does anybody else use this manual grammar for NT Greek?

I bought it only because I found a cheap used copy, and I found the descriptions surprisingly clear and illuminating. I find myself turning to it even when reading Homer, if I need to refresh myself about the functions of cases and tenses.

Also, Rodney Decker's website has many useful pdf files that he posted for his classes. There are several diagramed sentences from the ...

Two Biblical Greek Resources Online

Perhaps people are already aware of these sites, but I thought I'd post them. I just discovered them, but they seem promising.

http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/gopher/text/r ... /lxxmorph/

This is a text only site that lists all of the words of the LXX in verse order, indicates the form of the word, and gives the root. It's in code, not a Greek font, and the key requires a bit of deciphering, but ...

John 1:4 - Articles and Subject

John 1:4 - e)n au)tw|= zwh\ h}n, kai\ h( zwh\ h}n to\ fw=j tw=n a)nqrw/pwn.
In the second clause, it seems obvious that "life" is the subject, but grammatically, how is this known since the predicate nominative has the article aswell?

also, in the first clause, is the article missing to show that "life" here is qualitative?
