Eccite Hominem?

Here's a question that I, being such a neophyte, have been puzzling over since I finished Wheelock's Latin Grammar and then heard, once again, the famous Pontius Pilot quote, 'Ecce Homo!'

Pilot was addressing a croud, and 'homo' should be in the accusative, right? So why did he not say 'Eccite Hominem!'? That's assuming that my grammar here is correct, I haven't checked it to make sure.

Is 'Ecce Homo' a colloquial usage that existed ...

Hello to all,

I Corinthians help...

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone can help me with this verse? I don't need them both translated or anything like that. What I am trying to establish is the Real Presence in the communion theology. I have been told that the Greek word that was used for remembrance actually meant to re-live.



I Cor 11: 23-27

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the ...

Galatians 3, 28

In Galatians 3, 28 Paul says

ouk eni arshn kai thelu

I have two questions:
1) Is there a continual aspect in the verb eni ?
2) more importantly why did Paul not use anthropos and gunh instead of arshn and thelu ? What shade of meaning is added by the use of these terms?

Gratias ago vobis propter responsiones vestras futuras.

Vocabulary Master

My favorite PC flash-card program is called Vocabulary Master (click to download) and is free from Transparent Language.

I've used it teaching junior high and high school, in Latin and Spanish, and used it myself to study when I was in college. Strangely addictive.

Anyone else used it?

How/why do people pronuance Caesar

Simple question, I am assuming that Caesar is pronounced as in Ky-aesar. But generally people in films, TV, media or should I group them as popular culture say it as Se-aesar.

Where/when did the pronounciation go so 'wide' or the marker like this?

Or have I get it all wrong?

thanks
