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

Oxford latin Dictionary

Hello people, I was wondering if anyone has ever come across the oxford latin dictionary. I'm talking about the version that costs ~$200!

Is it worth the price?

My goal is to learn the basics in the short term so I can read and speak 'average' latin material , but for the long term so I can play around with the language itself.

thanks
