It's not a published textbook, but a study guide developed by Mr. Harrop for his class.

I'm just curious if anyone knows much about it.

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.
please help!

Working out the rusty hinges...

Hello all,

I'm glad to have found this wonderful resource. As of late, I've rekindled my interest in Koine Greek, and have been going through an old textbook (An Introduction to New Testament Greek, Huber Drumwright) and was trying to work through an excersise which has stumped me. Here it is...

profh/thj profh/th| le/gei ei)rh/nhn

I get that profh/thj is Nom Sing. Subject. "Prophet."

John 15:12 and 13

Ok, just two short questions...

'This is my mission, that you love each other like/because I loved you.'
Why did Saint Jerome translate it as like and not because?


No one has more love than this, so that anyone/someone sets his soul for his friends.

Why can't they just write proper Greek :wink: ? I know what it's suppose to be, but hina tis (+ conj.) ...
