Re: My New Biblical Studies Blog

Yes, I've used some of the Crosswire resources in software such as MacSword and BibleDesktop. I will need to add their page to the list.

Re: My New Biblical Studies Blog

Thanks Karl. Are there any of the Hebrew sources in particular that you have concerns about? You will note, of course, that I did put a "caveat lector" notice at the beginning of the resource page.

Re: My New Biblical Studies Blog

Α follow-up note: the regular Biblical studies articles will also reference Hebrew vocabulary and grammar when relevant, as will the notes in my Bible version.

Re: Bible verses, passages, quotes, or quotations?

I would agree with S Walch on the term "quotes", Kenneth. And educated people use slang all the time. It depends on audience and the speaker's style. I preach and teach (and write on my blog) in a semi-conversational style for the most part. Using a slang term in that context is often appr...

Re: Does this word exist?

Well, Yiddish is basically German from the 1500/1600s, which has a liberal infusion of Hebrew and Aramaic since it was mostly used by European Jews originally. And much of the time it has been written with a Hebrew script.

Re: Is the Semites' letter Aleph, meaning "ox", related to their god "El"?

This reminds me of some of the allegorical interpretation I've seen in the Apostolic Fathers, Augustine's sermon on the Sermon on the Mount, etc. None of which is derived from the plain meaning of the Scripture texts, but basically using them as a springboard to launch off into what is mostly the au...

Re: Should we create a [syr] tag?

Also looks good both on Windows 7 running Chrome (work computer) and Mac OS X 10.11 running Safari on MacBookPro (home). The text with the tag is easier on my eyes, too. My eyes aren't quite as young as Jason's (will be age 62 in January and wear bifocals), so the bigger size is welcome. ;)

Re: Should we create a [syr] tag?

I will start learning Syriac soon, so I think a [syr] tag would be helpful. For those like me who are new to the script though, it would be helpful if users included some transliteration along with the Syriac, or a transcription in square script along with individual words/phrases.

Re: Hebrew bible versification

One type of "discrepancy" that occurs is in the Psalms, where the Psalm titles in Hebrew texts (omitted in some translations) are usually counted as the first verse. When they are used in translations, often the first group of lines following is counted as verse 1 instead. And some Psalm c...
