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.
In Revelation 1:10, the day is called kuriakn nmera, in other word's, Lord's day, employing the word kuriakos, wich is defined by Strong as an adjective.

In Didache, chapter 14, the author uses the expression kuriakn de kuriou, that would be "Lord's Lord's". ...

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!

matt 11:12

I'm not sure if this verse has been discussed here before, but I couldn't find anything when I searched for it. I'm wanting to get some various view points on this verse. The text in Greek leaves one perplexed, should βιαζεται and βιασται it be seen the passive or middle? Should they both be translated in the same voice? Is there a tie in to Micah 2:12-13? Then what is the significance of this verse ...

NIV wackiness (James 2)

James 2 NIV wrote:Was not our ancestor Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. And the scripture was fulfilled that says, "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness," and he was called God's friend. You see that a person is justified by ...
