Confusing Lingo

Howdy, I found a troubling sentance in one of my greek books. legw ton auton logon

The translation I attempted did not make any sense. I translated it "I spoke it the word" or "a word"

The book gave me "I say the same word."

Why would that sentance mean that?

Yet another query...

Hi, I am confused again. This time I want to know the distinction between these two phrases. legete touton ton logon Which means "you speak this word". As compared to legete ton logon First of all is that correct to say in the first place and if so would that mean "You speak 'a' word" as opposed to "You speak 'this' word".

Also what the heck does touton or toutouj ...

A couple questions...

Hi, I have a book called "Teach Yourslef New Testament Greek." It's a good book but it leaves me wondering about a few things that some you will most likely be able to help me with. For example, o( foboj tou kuriou e)stin a)rxh thj sofiaj

I know that sofiaj is feminine singular genitive so why doesn't it say taj sofiaj Also why aren't a)rxh and sofiaj in the accusative case sense they describe ...

Mark 5:10

Is this just a case of the Nueter being fluid in Number or is the man (singular) posessed making a request for "them" demons (plural) ?

I think this is just demonstrating that number can be fluid in the Neuter like in I John 4:1

Any insight?

Mark 3:30

In Mark 3:30 there is a quote from Jesus, but at the end of the quote is an explanatory statment from the penman and not spoken by Jesus.

The final clause begins with o(ti

Is this really the normal use here needing a translation of "because" or is it just setting apart the extra statement similar to a quotation mark?

Reading Plan

I'm thinking about putting together a reading calendar to read the Entire Greek NT. I would like to do it in either a year or two years. I'm still very much a beginner, but I do have some understanding as I read.

How ambitious is this? I'd like to read it regardless of how much I understand or retain. Even though I'm reading for aquaintence rather than full understanding it seems like a good idea ...

I have it now!!

I have had Mounce's book and CD now for a couple of weeks. It is really good. The CD has been very handy. One thing I have noticed is that pronouncing Greek words do vary with different teachers. I have just tried to go with what Mounce has on his CD which means I have to change some things.

Mounce makes it very simple to understand. I love the way everything is set up. And ...

What do I have to look forward to?

I have ordered Mounce's book on the basics of Greek, it also has a CD that comes with it. I have not got it yet because I have ordered it off the internet and it has not come in yet.

I have been studying Greek on my own for awhile, and have even taken a little course on the internet. http://www.ibiblio.org/koine/greek/lessons/ How far along does Mounce's course take you? ...
