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.

Correct translation of Titus 2,13 ?

Titus 2,13:

Looking for our blessed hope, the manifestation of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Or (to avoid any trinitarian misunderstanding)

Looking for our blessed hope: the manifestation of Jesus Christ, the glory of our great God and Savior.

Articular Demonstratives

I can't find any articular Demonstratives in the NT and so far none of the grammars I've looked at discuss that use. Are there any such uses in other koine, attic, et al writings and if so what would be their signifigance?

I'm comparing the uses of autos and the demonstratives

Matthew 2:20

I'm a bit confused by the verb (I hate this verb :evil: ) here:

teqnh/kasin ga\r zhtou~ntes th\n yuxh\n tou~ paidi/ou

have the jealous/envious killed the spirit of the child? it seems odd, yet to say they have been killed by the spirit of the child makes even less sense, both in the story and grammatically.

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of ...
