A trivial question(actually, two questions) for who speaks or knows Hebrew quite much. I'm curious because modern Hebrew is said to be a rebuilt language.
Modern Hebrew-English dictionary has Kaneh-bos as hemp. And there's a web site that says the Kaneh-bosem in Ex. 30:22-33, an ingredient of the anointing oil, is hemp.(and that cannabis is derivative from kaneh-bos) Is it true that the occurrence of Kaneh-bosem in the OT is the hemp plant?

Crosby Greek Grammar 1860/Hansen & Quinn

The site below has been designed by a Richard Hunerlach to assist members of an on-line group studying Greek using the Hansen and Quinn Textbook. As well as tutorial help for that textbook the site also has a link to an on-line version of Crosby's Grammar 1860 and Greek Lessons, 1849. Crosby's was one of the standard 19th century grammars, which prepared students to read Xenophon's Anabasis. I am lucky to have a copy.

Virtual Christianity: Bibles

This is where I used to visit to refer to the bible. tho' these days I prefer Perseus for NT. Check out "Blue Letter Bible" and "Unbound Bible" for Hebrew and Greek versions.
(In "Blue Letter Bile" click on the "C" button on the left of each verse to see the Hebrew or Greek.)

Oscar nominiations

Johnny Depp has been nominated for best actor - his first Oscar nomination :D .
Apart from that the films nominated are ones I've never heard of, except for Lord of the Rings, which I hope will win.
Any one here seen Mystic River? It's been nominated, but I know it's not even been translated into German (and probably never will be unless it wins all ...
