Re: study a NT book

Just some more thought about Ho. In one of the books I looked at it said "can be used as a demonstrative pronoun".

Re: study a NT book

So far, no joy with the Greek fonts. I can type them in Word, in WordPad etc, but try to post them elsewhere, no go. Any hints besides cutting and pasting???
