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).

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.

Parsing Tools

Other than using the bundled software that comes with Mounce's textbook, are there any other parsing programs that are available for download? I heard that on David Alan Black's website, there was a link to one, but I couldn't find it. Any and all help is appreciated!

Eph. 4:11 - construction and number of groups

Dear all,

I would like to know your opinion on the following comment I’ve read
on the web, concerning the letter to ephesians 4:11 of the NT, its
construction and whether there are four or five groups mentioned:

Eph 4:11

tous men apostolous
tous de profhtas
tous de euaggelistas
tous de poimenas kai didaskalous"

Without parts men-de-de-de, it would be like this:

"kai autos edwke
tous apostolous
tous profhtas
tous euaggelistas ...

Help about Heb 9:23


I'm using a Bible program to read the Bible in greek. It is the e-sword:

The greek text has some letters showing what kind of word is there... Like V-PPI-3S. I imagine that this means that the word is a verb in present passiv indicative, third person singular... I want to know if there is a table of the meanings of all these codes...

But the main question is about Heb 9:23. There ...
