Re: Greek Grammar and the Personality of the Holy Spirit

I think the problem with having the debate here (and that is what you are asking for) is that when you color your comments with things like "scholars" and "heretics" you come across as having a serious theological axe to grind. This is not a theological/doctrinal forum, it is a forum about Koine Gre...

Re: A Koine reading list

I have been spending most of my time reading Attic Greek lately, and it was a pleasant surprise to come back to Mark and find out that all that work has paid off there too. I was able to read through Mark like a novel, in just a few hours, with full comprehension, including all of the chapters that...

Re: What is the Grammar-Translation method?

Ok....I'll bite.... I personally learned Greek in the "Grammar-Translation" method...although I've never heard it called that before. I think that C.S. is exactly right in what it's purpose and function is. I didn't learn Koine and Classical Greek so I could speak it....I learned it so I could read,...

Hello Textkittens, It's been a very long time since I've visited this site.

Hello All,

I was wondering if any of you could give me the info from Moulton and Geden's Concordance of the GNT for the word οφειλημα ? It would be greatly appreciated. I have to do it for a homework assignment, and they want us to use an actual book, instead of vastly superior bible software!

The Imitation of Christ is a good reccomend for a classical Christian work. However, if I had to go with a classic it would have to be St. Augustine's Confessions, far and away my favorite book by an Father. He's very philosophical too which makes it at times deep weeds.
