    If you mean by "it" Green's rationale/reason for using a full spelling, I doubt it, but if you have access to it, it's worth a shot.

  • Re: Lemma vs Root

    In English, it is commonly perceived that John is a derivative nickname of the fuller name Jonathan. Interestingly, when these two Biblical names are traced back, it turns out they are not, in fact, related. Jonathan is an epithet sourced from the Hebrew for "YHWH gives" or "YHWH's gift", from naatth an , which means "to give". In contrast, John is

  • Re: Word Occurrence Count w/References

    As David says, "word counts" are only viable concepts when based upon the OLs, but even when using the OLs as your starting point, there are a few occasions where it is simply unclear how often a word occurs in Scripture (although it can be narrowed down very closely). This is because there a quite a number of places, particularly in the OT, where it

    Nota Bene...readers should alert themselves to the caveat that this thread is over a decade old. The info in it may be current and relevent, but considering that the subject matter concerns the digital realm, where things can change rapidly, I wouldn't assume that to be the case. A more current voice should be consulted to confirm the current status

    [quote user="Phil Quigley"] Quickly scanning Google, it appears that both Qal participle spellings--with the holam vav and without--appear in Biblical texts; however, always have the holam vav in Modern Hebrew. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holam ) I wonder if that's the difference. You'd have to look at all the manuscript evidence for this particular

  • Re: "New Testament Originally in Aramaic": Resources?

    As Denise mentioned, we only have Greek language texts of the NT. One of the arguments put forward for original Hebrew or Aramaic autograph texts is the presence in our Greek texts of obvious Hebraisms and Aramaisms. Yes, it is true that there are Hebraisms/Aramaisms found in the Greek texts, but those DO NOT require prerequisite texts written in either

    For the sake of clarity, the various citations that I am posting here are coming from my own Logos notes, of which there are thousands, and as I indicatfed above, I have changed my preferred citation style over the years, using about half-a-dozen different ones.

    I've tried a few different styles over the years and it seems that most if not all of them leave something to be desired.

I'm looking for complete. I'm looking for a

    Has there been an official (or officialish) declaration about how some titles end up as ebooks while others get Logos treatment? I know some have migrated from one camp to the other. I also have seen books with numerous chapter/verse citations, including some full-blown commentaries, that were relegated to the ebook bin. It seems that I once heard it
