Hey, Andrew! Teach me some Greek! for a homeschooled child

I am homeschooling my grandson this fall and will be using Hey, Andrew!
I know nothing about Greek so this is all new to me (us). He is 10 years old, 5th grade and an avg. student. Am trying to go slow so that he can absorb everything and not overload him with too many new things.

Any opinions about this beginners course for his age group? Any comments, suggestions will be greatly appreciated- positive, ...

HELP!!! Stubborn and violent siblings...

I have been trying to teach my siblings Latin, but they feel it is boring. :shock:
They refuse to learn, and they have become violent and virtually aggressive with the mention of Latin. :(
I've tried to explain the benefits of Latin, but they give me insults and grief. :cry: ...

I had a teen that is drawing up the coat of arms for us to send to the actual developer and his grandmother showed him his family's coat ...

greek font, the only one now

I wonder why the antiquated spionic greek posting method is used here? I can just press ctrl+shift+3 and type in the accented greek with "polytonic greek" standard Win2k input method .. I think it also should present in any other decent Windows. Any other modern OS also should have a way to create unicode texts.

I personally have two problems with spionic - 1. it must be installed. That's pretty minor, but the other one ...

Romans 8:23

a)pekdexo/menoi th\n a)polu/trwsin tou= sw/matos h(mw=n

This verse is classically interpreted as 'redemption of our bodies'. However given the definition of a)polu/trwsin as 'Being set free,liberated by payment of a ransom' I'm confused.

It seems to me this clause could be interpreted in two ways with exact opposite meanings.

redemption of our bodies (ie a renewed and transformed version of this body)

or

liberation from our bodies (ie a complete freedom and release from this ...

codes?!? in homer's and tragedians' intros

this sounds bizarre, and i don't find co-incidental patterns interesting, but i haven't heard about this before and i'm wondering if anyone here has heard about this and whether it's been generally approved/rejected:

i'm just reading The Homer of Aristotle by D Margoliuoth, Oxford 1923 who says that there was a practice of all Greek tragedians, mentioned in Diogenes Laertius, of inserting cryptic signatures in the tragedies to prove their authenticity. It then sets out ...

People who annoy me....

I just thought I'd start a semi-flaming thread about people who bug me!

The first and foremost on this list are people who become members here at Textkit, merely to post about political/religious reasons and have no desire to learn, and (presumably) no capacity for Greek or Latin.....People who merely want to take the opportunity to try and "indoctrinate" us with their profound wisdom and insight. Which leads me to my second type of people ...
