Fellow listers, we're trying to decide here if the best translation
of prototokos paseis ktiseos in Col. 1:15 is "firstborn over all creation"
or "firstborn of all creation." The NIV and NKJV have "over all creation,"
but is this really what the text says?
Do you think paseis is best understood here as a genitive of
comparison? The issue, of course, is whether Jesus was a created being, the
beginning of creation. Any thoughts?

Subject: [B-Greek] Accents
I haven't been following the thread on accents, but since we're all talking
about it, are there any articles that people could point me to outlining the
usage of accents in an easy to understand fashion? I'm doing first year
Greek, and I'm told that in second year we will be getting marked on our use
of accents. I'm sure we'll have it explained to us, but I'm starting to get
to the point where there are just to many whys.
