Jewish by birth (never religiously), baptized as an infant in the Roman Catholic Church, but just now preparing to be confirmed and have my first communion.

A friend of mine and I are preparing to begin a study group for Attic/Koine Greek. If you are interested in learning Attic/Koine Greek, please go to the following website, create an account, and introduce yourself:

We're hoping you'll participate!

comment Are the twenty-four elders of Revelation 4-5 angels or humans?
@JesusSaves: That all depends on which Greek manuscript your English translation is based upon.

comment Why doesn’t the Septuagint include the characterization of Isaac as Abraham’s “only son”?
Also noteworthy are Aquinas' and Symmachus' translations, found here (p. 37).

comment Does the past tense in the suffering servant song (Isaiah 53) refer to Jesus?
@BruceJames: It's a general statement. After all, Sefer Mikhlol is a grammar, as you know, not a commentary on any particular book of the Tanakh.

comment who are those in antioch that called believers CHRISTIANs
@rhetorician: Χριστιανός doesn't mean "little Christ." It means "belonging to Christ," i.e. Christ's servant/slave. That is why it was considered insulting, because being someone's slave was seen as degrading (but, of course, it's not to a Christian since they are Christ's slave).

comment Why does the Greek Septuagint of Genesis 34:3 refer to Dinah as a virgin?
@AdithiaKusno: No, not really, as an equivalent phenomenon as vav-consecutives does not exist in Koine Greek, or any other language that I know of, for that matter.
