Double check my work?

Hey guys, havn't posted in a while, but, here I am.

Mounce's exegesis of Titus 1:6 is clearly WRONG

Mounce is not only the author of Basics of Biblical Greek, but of a commentary on the Pastoral Epistles (Word Biblical Commentary, vol. 46 http://www.amazon.com/Word-Biblical-Com ... 417&sr=8-1).

In this commentary, Mounce specifically refers to the phrase μή ἐν κατηγορίᾳ ἀσωτίας ἢ ἀνυπότακτα in Titus 1:6 as being the "third set of requirements" (the first being that an elder be a 'one-woman man' and the second that he have believing ...

Apostolic Fathers online readers

I've been (slowly) working on a series of online readers for the Apostolic Fathers collection, starting with the letters of Ignatius. I have 2 completed so far with a 3rd in development. I'm hoping that these will help people get into the AF by easing them into the vocabulary. There is a lot of vocabulary overlap with the New Testament, but there are plenty of new and unfamiliar words as well. These online readers list ...

τον απ αρχης

I have a question that I would like to present here at Text Kit.

in 1 John 2:13 we read "τον απ αρχης". I believe that this is a substantive. Also I believe that it speaks directly of Jesus Christ which means that He had eternal pre-existence.

What are your thoughts?

ἰσχύω

Why is the aorist of ἰσχύω ἴσχυσα? Why doesn't it take an augment and become εἰσχυσα or ἠσχυσα? Mounce's Morphology put it in "the largest category of verbs and most 'regular'" (page 250).

(Working on Mark 14:37)

Thanks

Septuagint Vocabulary

I don't have access to Accordance or similar software, so I'm asking here:

How many unique words are in the LXX (Swete's or Rahlf's, I'm not particular) that are not in the Greek New Testament?

How many unique words are in the GNT that are not in the LXX?

I'm just trying to get a feel for the ratios before I make the jump to working on the LXX.

Thanks!

Homeric vs Koine study??

Hello.

My main purpose is to learn Greek for the purpose of Biblical studies. I would like to not only read the New testament but the Septuagint as well. Also the Histories surrounding the Biblical periods that directly relate to Biblical study.

I know after the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities the world of the Hebrews fell under the Greek influence with Alexander the great and his generals. Is there enough Greek literature that would cover ...

Dobson vs. Hale

I've finished Mounce, but I'm sure there are a lot of finer points I've missed. I was going to do a second pass through it, but I read somewhere that for a second pass, it might be better to use a different textbook.

If I'm going to use a different textbook, I wanted one that would provide lots of easy reading (Lingua Latina-style) to drill the basic forms deep so I can really read in ...

Mark 14:34

In Mark 14:34, I found the Greek word μεινατε. I couldn't figure it out, so I looked it up, and it's parsed as the AAImp2P of μενω.

By my understanding, if μενω is first aorist, the result should be μενσατε. I guess the sigma could drop out for pronunciation, but it doesn't seem that hard to pronounce as-is, and where does the iota come from?

If it's second aorist, the iota would be part of ...

question about LXX Exodus 20:9

I have a question about LXX Exodus 20:9:

«ἓξ ἡμέρας ἐργᾷ καὶ ποιήσεις πάντα τὰ ἒργα σου.»

What is the form of ἐργᾷ? I don’t recognize it. Is it a verb or a noun? Thanks in advance for the help.

{ ερωτημα μεν ουν εχω περι του εικοσι κεφαλαιου του της Εξοδου βιβλιου. λεγω δη τον ενατον στιχον.

«ἓξ ἡμέρας ἐργᾷ καὶ ποιήσεις πάντα τὰ ἒργα σου.»

τί εστιν το «ἐργᾷ» κατα μορφην; αυτο γαρ ...
