Short Goliath

I am writing a thesis on the textual differences between the LXX and the Masoretic text in 1 Samuel 16-18 (1 Kingdoms 16-18 :wink:). You can read a very brief sketch here.

It should be an interesting study, and I have yet to reach a conclusion. I chose the most provocative working thesis: The MT is a conflation of the proto-Hebrew (as reflected in the LXX) and ...

verb tense issues in 1 John 3:9

So, on another forum, a guy asked me about various translations of a few verses. It seemed that some of the confusion might be eliminated with an adequate understanding of the verb tenses. Since I’m not yet to verbs, I thought I would post his concerns here and see if you guys had an opinion on it. First, the translation of 1 John 3:9.

This has been translated several different ways. The way the KJV ...

I know this is an old, and irrelavant topic for a language that is dead, unspoken, and strictly liturgical. But it is important for me. I learned a way to pronounce Hebrew, and for years I was doing it wrong. It turns out that Modern Hebrew now utilizes European pronunciation, and when people learn "Biblical Hebrew", they do the same. Only about a year ago did I learn Classical Hebrew pronunciation. And not only is ...

About the Lord's Day

Hello everybody!

Recently, I'm researching the references about the Lord's Day in ancient christian writings, and had some doubts about the greek expression.

Moulton and Geden?....

Hello All,

I was wondering if any of you could give me the info from Moulton and Geden's Concordance of the GNT for the word οφειλημα ? It would be greatly appreciated. I have to do it for a homework assignment, and they want us to use an actual book, instead of vastly superior bible software!

No more basics of Biblical Greek

I am starting to study Koine Greek on my own. And when I found this web site my heart jumped for joy. And then it all most stoped when I seen how little activity Koine Greek And Mounce's Basics of Biblical Greek had. I wonder why there is so little activity here? I know that I would post here as I move along in my studies. I know the biggest challenge for me is time. ...
