relative pronoun/accents/middle voice

1. 1 Jn 1: 5a "και εστιν αυτη η αγγελια ην ακηκοαμεν απ' αυτου..."
My question concerns the case of the relative pronoun, ην. Since it refers back to αγγελια I would have expected the pronoun to be in the nominative case since its referent is nominative. The only way I can make a little sense of it is to say that it is the direct object of ακηκοαμεν, but I'm guessing. What's dictating the ...

Machen New Testament Greek for Beginners Group beginning Aug

To One And All--
A friend of mine and myself are starting a new beginners' Greek group that will follow J. Gresham Machen's, New Testament Greek for Beginners. I have the second edition of this work but my colleague, Kat Doe, has both the first and second editions. There is a photostatic copy of this book available online, which would prove useful, as this old edition I have cost me $50. Kat or myself might ...

Abbott's "Johannine Grammar" on Google Books

I know that Google Books isn't the most convenient way to view a book, nor are the books available in one area always available elsewhere (different countries' copyright rules, I assume), but in the U.S. at least, you can now read the 1906 Johannine Grammar by Edwin A. Abbott.

Since I'm fairly ignorant of NT/Koine studies, I asked around first before posting this. I gather Abbott is still a respected authority.

Koine Greek and Classical Greek

Hi everyone, I just wanted to ask you guys a question. In the second semester of the coming school year I'm going to be taking a class in which we read philosophical texts from both Greek and Latin authors - since technically I'm 'only' a Latinist (Latinity is my bachelor study) the teacher(s) will provide me and others like me with translations of the Greek material (the classicists will be reading the originals).

Now, I ...

several Q's

1. In my study of Greek I have run across several comments concerning the importance of hearing the language(or any other language for that matter). They usually accompany further comments about accessing other parts of the brain for memory, language being primarily spoken and heard. This is in contrast to the way I have approached learning Greek so far; in a silent, cookbook, formulaic manner like a math or physics text. I would be interested ...
