The Boy Who Lost His Faith

Postby Ἰορδάνης » Sun Mar 10, 2013 4:50 pm

πάλαι ἦν τις παῖς πιστεύων ἐν ταῖς παραδόσεσιν ταῖς τῶν γονέων αὐτοῦ. αὐτὸς δὲ ἐκοινώνει τῇ πίστει τῇ πατρικῄ. ἐδιδάχθη μὲν ὁ παῖς τὴν τοῦ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ διδασκαλίαν. χριστιανὸς ἦν ὁ παῖς. χρόνου πολλοῦ προβεβηκότος, ὁ παῖς αὐτὸς ἤρξατο ἀναγινώσκειν τὴν διδαχὴν τοῦ Ἰησοῦ. ἤθελεν συνεῖναι ἀκριβῶς τοὺς λόγους τοῦ Μᾶρκου καὶ τοὺς λόγους τοῦ Ἰωάννου. ἔδοξε δὲ τῷ παιδὶ ὅτι δυσνόητά ἐστιν τὰ ῥήματα αὐτῶν. καὶ διὰ τοῦτο ἤθελεν μαθεῖν τὴν Ἑλληνικὴν γλῶσσαν τὴν τοῦ Μᾶρκου καὶ τοῦ Ἰωάννου, ἵνα συνῇ καὶ καταλάβῃ τὸν λόγον. μαθὼν δὲ τὴν παλαιὰν γλῶσσαν ἐδύνατο ἀναγνῶναι καὶ καταλαβεῖν αὐτὸς τὰ ῥήματά τε καὶ τὸν λόγον αὐτῶν. ἔδοξε δὲ αὐτῷ ὅτι Μᾶρκος ἔλεγέν τι, ἀλλ᾿ Ἰωάννης ἔλεγεν ἄλλο. Μᾶρκος δὴ γὰρ εἶπεν ὅτι ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἦν ἄνθρωπος μόνον, ἀλλ᾿ Ἰωάννης εἶπεν ὅτι θεῖος ἦν τε καὶ τάχα ὁ θεὸς αὐτός. ἐταράχθη μὲν ἡ καρδία τοῦ παιδός. οἱ δὲ γονεῖς αὐτοῦ ἐπίστευσαν ἀμφότεροι Μᾶρκος καὶ Ἰωάννης ἔλεγον τὴν ἀλήθειαν. τοῦτο δὲ συνέχεεν τὸν τοῦ παιδὸς νοῦν. διαλογιζόμενος ἔκλαιεν ὁ παῖς καὶ τὸ πνεῦμα αὐτοῦ ὠδυνήθη. ὡμολόγησεν αὐτὸς ὅτι ἀδύνατόν ἐστιν ἐπιγνῶναι τὸ τίς εἴη ὁ Ἰησοῦς. οὐκέτι οὖν ἐπίστευσεν ἐπὶ τὴν τῶν γονέων πίστιν. πλὴν ἠγάπησεν ὁ παῖς τὴν διδασκαλίαν τοῦ Ἰησοῦ καὶ τὰ εὐαγγέλια.

εὔγε, φίλε Ἰορδάνης! γράφεις καλῶς! τὸν μύθον σου κατέλαβον καὶ συνῆκα καὶ πεφίληκα.

ἔδοξε δὲ αὐτῷ ὅτι Μᾶρκος ἔλεγέν τι, ἀλλ᾿ Ἰωάννης ἔλεγεν ἄλλο.


κατά με, ὁ μὲν Μᾶρκος κατὰ σάρκα ἔγραψεν, ὁ δὲ Ἰωάννης κατὰ πνεῦμα. ἀμφότεροι οὖν τὴν ἀλήθεαν ἔγραψαν.

γράφε, παρακαλῶ, ἄλλους μύθους Ἑλληνιστί.
I am writing in Ancient Greek not because I know Greek well, but because I hope that it will improve my fluency in reading. I got the idea for this from Adrianus over on the Latin forum here at Textkit.
